An Elfje Trio



majestic giant

towering over me

immovable rock of strength




LORD, You are my strength when the world threatens to crumble around me.  What have I to fear?

Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.  Isaiah 54:10



shining bright

guide at night

comfort in the dark




Father, You guide me because You love me.  Thank you for being our Light in the darkness.

He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Psalm 23:3



leading role

brightening my day

your warmth is welcome




Jesus, You are the bright and morning Star!  I can face any day with You.

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22-23

    1. Thank you, Ian! Yes, we can miss so much when we are often in a hurry. Photography and poetry help me to slow down and take notice of details.

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy 🙂

  1. All glory to God: creator, sustainer, protector, lover of our souls! It was so good to read your poetry and see your pictures this evening.

    It is now safe for me to share part of our family’s news: my husband decided abd announced to his current practice last week that he will not be signing the contract to join the group. In short, many doors were closing and with much prayer, we decided it would be wise to move on. The future looks very promising and exciting, though I’m not at liberty to say exactly what will come next!

    Your poetry today confirmed many of the thoughts of praise V and I are having. Walking away from a job can be scary, but putting our trust in God all along leaves us feeling at peace and confident.

    Blessings to you, friend! –Alison

    1. Alison, I am so glad that you both have peace. My experience has shown me that when a couple decide together in mutual agreement there is blessing. Life is scary – but dull – if no risks are taken at all. Good on you both for your prayerful decision making.

  2. Thank you for helping us worship and praise Him today, Wendy, with your poetry , photos and the scriptures. 🙂 God bless you as you trust Him more and more!

    1. Thank you, Debbie! About an hour after I posted this we, sadly, lost one of our pets (which is why I’m behind with comments). Even in that grief I saw His mercy and love.

  3. These are wonderful, Wendy–thank you for introducing me to new poetry forms, I have some things coming up this week!! God bless you abundantly–love, sis Caddo

  4. I like this new form – new to me, anyway. Lovely thoughts, lovely photos – the sun playing the ‘leading role’ was my favourite, I think! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Melody! I thought ‘leading role’ was most appropriate for the Morning Star. After all, He built and owns this theater we call life.

        1. Yes, another portion of words on paper to add to my clutter of creations pouring out of my satchel and crowding out my devoted dog’s bed beside me…

    1. Thank you, David! I’m glad that you aren’t tired of my glacier shots. It is hard to ignore it when we have a clear or partly clear day.

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy 🙂

    1. It turns out that I needed them, too, as we lost one of our pets about an hour after I posted this… His comfort was very present.

      Blessings dear friend ~ Wendy xo

          1. I prayed for you this morning on my walk … I did not know why God put you on my heart, but I prayed for your encouragement …

          2. Thank you so much. Heidi, you are sweet! I don’t want to share this, yet, with the two friends I normally would since they have even bigger issues they are dealing with this week… I guess He knew I needed the prayer. xo

    1. What a sweet comment, Laurie! Thank you! May we: ‘Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.’ Chronicles 16:11
