The sun be warm and kind
To you,
The darkest night, some star
Shine through,
The dullest morn
A radiance brew,
And when dusk comes –
God’s hand
To you.

I spent a wonderfully quiet day at the easel finishing today’s painting, which was inspired by a photo I took at sunset on the first day of spring.
