Centennial Poetry

Posted By: Brad  //  Category: Faith, Family

For those who may have read Amazing Grace, you may find the following delightful also.

Grace has been known to wax poetic now and again.

This is a poem she dictated to my Dad over the phone (she doesn’t see to write for herself anymore) on April 29, 2010, several months after her 100th birthday.

A hundred years are finished.
A century has gone.
And now a second season
Of learning has begun.

I’ll try to keep me ready
For what the future brings,
Til with the Holy Spirit
My spirit, answering, sings.

I thought this was pretty wonderful coming from my favorite centenarian.

You’re in Boardman Country!

Make yourself at home,

Brad

What do you mean you don’t know what it is?

It’s the inside of my next door neighbor’s bedroom valence where a batch of industrious yellow-jackets built and painted this humongous hive!  What you’re looking at stands about two feet tall and is attached to the inside of the external wall of his house.  I think they just incorporated the “eagle’s head” portrait for fun.

How I happened to be able to snap off these shots all began Read more…
