Winter’s End and Art

As God sends spring at winter’s end and Birds return to build again – as dark woods quicken into green beneath the kiss of April’s rain, so shall I wake one happy day and feel the pulse of life anew, looking out with fearless  eyes towards a broader brighter view – discovering forgotten dreams and happiness long denied – learning how to live again, by many sorrows purified. As new sap rises in the bough and bursts  the folded buds apart, so will hope bring forth her flowers and joy return unto my heart. -Strong

A Prayer and Art

Lord support us all the day long of this troublous life, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes and the busy world is hushed and the fever of life is over and our work is done.

Then, of Thy great mercy grant us safe lodging, and holy rest, and peace at the last, through Jesus Christ. Amen.

My Favorite Neighbor

An abandoned homestead borders on my property,but I do not consider the dilapidated buildings an eyesore, nor the gnarled Orchard haunted during a full moon.

Instead, I welcome the old place as my most interesting neighbor.

Winter and Art

I have seen beauty,tossed and curled,cover up a careworn world.

Ermine drapes the shabby woods. In lacy shawls and goose-down hoods.

Earth wears white for just one reason. Snow and ice must come in season.
