I am medically retired from my 'career', have been since 1999. For quite some time I missed my old job a lot. I enjoyed it, I was good at it and didn't have any desire to do anything else. But the Lord had other plans for me. Now He has called me to work for Him. He has graciously given me some talent to work with words. He has also seen fit to guide me with the Holy Spirit to study and comprehend His Word. Don't misunderstand; I am no scholar nor a pastor. I'm just trying to be obedient to my Lord and Savior and do what He asks me, in a way that would please and bring glory to His holy Name.

Chapel and Autumn #Tanka

Browsing my blog feed I found a few tanka this week that were beautifully written for the prompt words autumn and chapel. Though I haven’t participated in this new-to-me challenge, the words inspired me to give it a go.

horizon’s vivid splendor
behind the chapel
old oak tree reaches upward
touching Heaven so slightly
