Here is my offering for today, entitled, "Reveal"

Something hidden deep

Why can't I find the answer?

Lord, I need your sight.

Be well everyone and enjoy your weekend.
love and peace,


  1. a true provoking haiku today Peg. Love the 'layers' in this.

  2. Awesome photo and contemplative haiku ~~ thanks, namaste, ^_^

  3. With our merely human eyes, we miss so much. It takes God's opening our eyes so that we can truly see.

    Too Early for Crows

  4. i love your haiku...coupling your quest with this photograph teaming with beauty and bright blooming makes me completely assured that not only will you find your are already abundantly, swimmingly, surrounded with spiritual gifts.
    thank you for sharing yours.

  5. Lovely vignette
    ~~words & vision~~
    Know This--->

    Open your focus
    your answer

  6. Ah, to see clearly - the great quest. Great words.

  7. The combination of the photo and the poem is really wonderrful. I love it!

  8. I just returned from an Episcopal memorial service and am contemplating with the flowers......your lovely photo and universal question in the haiku were so meaningful this day...

  9. ...or is it right there on the surface??? Beautiful, thought provoking post!

  10. Maybe it just seems deep coz that's where we search most often? :) Thank you for a very intriguing haiku.

  11. I thank you for coming to my blog and leaving a comment.
    The thought I had instantly as I read your Haiku was to tell you that maybe the answers will come later. All prayers are answered. But all prayers are not answered immediately or with the answer or result you might have been looking for. I think you already know this, but it was just what this post made me think about. Beautful photo.


  12. Most answers come in time, and often when least expected.

  13. Waiting is most difficult. Knowing the answer will come to you at the right moment may help or when least expected as Karen so wisely said. Take care.

  14. When you wake up in the morning I bet the Holy Spirit will reveal to you what you are seeking. Loved your photo and haiku.

Published in Somerset Studio's ART Journaling magazine gallery section Spring 2014!

Great news! Some of my journal pages were selected to be published in one of my favorite magazines..........ART Journaling!!

Stampington & Company is such a wonderful resource for artists who create in many different mediums. You can find this magazine and more on their website @

The first page of the gallery section has little snippets of what you will see in the coming pages. Mine is on the far right (birdies on a branch)

Here is the two page layout.........yay!

I'm so happy with the results!

Here is a closeup of the first page:

I created this page after being outside one day early in the morning. I was watching birds on a branch of this bush and they were so cute, just kinda hanging around. I was feeling overwhelmed by life and that's where the sentiment came from. "Birdies on a branch, how lucky you can just fly away." I wanted to be one of those birds.
The truth that I have learned and accepted in my life by faith is…

real gratitude

I live in an apartment.

I went for a walk today around town. I looked at all of the beautiful houses and thought, "I hope these people appreciate what they have! If I had a house and property like this, I would be so grateful!"

Then a still small voice said, "Are you grateful now?"

Tears welling up in my eyes, I thought, I used to be.

Maybe it's watching tv, looking at what everyone else has that has tainted my heart.

The Lord is so good. So patient. So loving.

He gently reminded me of all of the good things I DO have.

And then I thought.......I want to be grateful in every circumstance. Not WHEN I have a house, or lose weight, or anything. Right now I am this my heart.

A peace washed over me, like only God can do.

What is real gratitude? Grateful for only the things that make you happy or things that you enjoy?
Or everything? Every unwanted circumstance, every person that rubs you the wrong way. We are so quick to run f…

Peg's Kitchen Studio

I love to create. Especially collage. But I haven't been creating much lately. You know how it is, life gets in the way. I'm always amazed at people that are able to create constantly as if they have no responsibilities. Well, they do, but I think creating is their career, so the people that depend on them are more understanding.......I guess.

I don't know, I get frustrated because I don't have a studio, and I want one so bad. Yes, my etsy shop is Peg's Kitchen Studio and it all started out that way, but it ain't easy, I'll tell ya that. Especially since the kitchen in my other apartment was bigger and now I have, well, it's more like an alcove. Yet, somehow I find myself creating in it. 
This past year was rough. But here we are in 2016 and it seems to be going better. 
Not sure what I have in mind for my blog this year, but I'll think of something.
Here's a belated Happy New Year to whoever is reading this. With all the blogs out there, it…
