This was my post for Thanksgiving this year, and grateful every day. As Ann Voskamp writes: “eucharisteo precedes the miracle.”
“Little nails and a steady hammer can rebuild a life –eucharisteoprecedes the miracle.”
Selections from One Thousand Gifts

I remembered the quote today and had not looked at this book for awhile. The “Interior photography” is also by Ann Voskamp.
In April 2013 I wrote, The goal is to always find something to praise – however tiny. It’s interesting as I type this, I recall such vivid images of beauty outside the windows during difficult days. I didn’t think of myself as having that visual sense before. Now it is appearing in my poetry, as a natural part of life.
These are photos from my 2016 archives.

early June morning
pelicans fly over the water
a deer walks through the yard
in an old glass vase
by the window
poinsettia and lily plants
placed by the back patio door
and still in the house
on evergreen branches
an image loved for years
the small new growth
and lilacs bloom
