Daily Prompt: Sympathy

Lake Michigan yesterday – Ellen Grace Olinger

I have watched this great lake through many seasons and years; through work, chronic illness, caregiving, grief, new art, fatigue, rest, and ever-growing hope.  This year the water is high, and reaches the seawall.

Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.

Psalm 27: 14 (KJV)

This verse sustained me during a difficult time.

For the prompt Sympathy

early September

As I read for a few hours this morning, I watched the light and the trees.  The birch tree has a few gold leaves, and a few green and gold leaves.

Blue sky and wind . . .

Autumn begins here in two weeks, on September 22.  This morning I could sense a pause, and that soon there will be more change.
