flowers and leaves
in light wind
and sun . . .
at any age
My pace is slower now, older now. Some life chapters are well in the past, and yet creativity renews, with care and time. I have known an academic career in education, chronic illness, caregiving, volunteer work, and the history we all share. Grateful.
By God’s grace, and help from many people, my art grows through difficult times. I look for beauty every day. And some days I simply need to rest. My goal with my blogs is to offer hope. Thank you. Ellen Grace Olinger

Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the daytime,
and in the night his song shall be with me,
and my prayer unto the God of my life.
Psalm 42: 8 (KJV)
Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.
Psalm 25:1 (KJV)
