I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Yea, on the glancing wing of eager birds, the softly pattering feet of furred and gentle beasts. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Not borne on the morning's wings of majesty, but I have set My feet amidst the delicate and bladed wheat. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord.

A New Day

A darting fear—a pomp—a tear—
A waking on a morn
To find that what one waked for,
Inhales the different dawn.
-Emily Dickinson

This is the day the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it!  -Psalm 118:24


  1. This says it all, Cathy. Every day, no matter what challenges it may hold, is something in which to rejoice. And this photo is one of yours? I love the "almost-dripped" raindrop. You always post your own photos, right? I'm gonna have to save it to my CATHY folder. This one will make #100 - can you believe it? A lot of yours that I've saved are from your Martha's Vineyard visit - you got some awfully-beautiful photos there. Hope you're having a quiet start to 2017. How 'Gabriel's Story' going? 💛

    1. Yes, Janet, all the photos on this web journal are mine except for a couple in the beginning which I noted. This week I started my routine (M-F) of drawing one illustration a day. I will do 5 per chapter. Later I will go back and choose one to paint. The rest will be pen & ink drawings....unless I decide later to paint more. It will depend on how long it takes me to do this. There are 14 chapters, so that's at least 4 months (allowing for vacation), and then 14 illustrations to paint which is another month or so probably. Then I need to research how best to get them printed and marketed. My goal is to have it ready by the end of summer.

  2. Beautiful photo and words. Thanks!
