another year

another year
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too

Poems From Psalms And Nature: 2020 Series Review

At Poems From Psalms And Nature, I am working to review our series from March 2020 – July 2020. These posts are short selections from the 150 Psalms, with art by many people. I also post some of my poems and reflections.

If you are interested, these are my two recent posts, and you can read/view more from there. My goal is to offer a few moments of beauty and hope.

new beginnings
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

Thy statutes have been my songs

in the house of my pilgrimage.
