A few snow pics

I took these pictures yesterday during various stages of our surprise “Spring” snowstorm. Just little signs of Creation and beauty everywhere. Enjoy!

Tired and Mossy

Just in front of my parking space yesterday was this mossy trunk of a stately oak tree. The grass wasn’t sprouting yet. The branches were bare, and last year’s leaves blew around on the ground beneath her. No sign of spring anywhere… I had…

Back to my roots

     A wise woman once said to me that there are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these, she said, is roots, the other, wings. Quoted by Hodding Carter in “Where Main Street Meets the River”…

Let the day end as at began…

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice. Meister Eckhart The day started very early. Before the sun was up, we headed to the airport to send off our Johnnie on a bit of an adventure….

When less than perfect is… perfect!

My travels today took me all over suburbia, from the newest neighborhoods with massive custom homes to the post-World War 2 bungalows. In the outer ‘burbs, there are many places where the agricultural community lives side-by-side with modern amenities. Driving on one back road, I chuckled…

Little foxes

The day started with a sense that it was not going to be my day. SQUISH!  Yes, I stepped in a fresh pile of cat hork… and had to change my socks… and wash my feet… EWWWW! Really, cat? I cleaned up some of the…

In case you hadn’t heard, it snowed. It snowed A LOT. For about 36 hours, we watched the piles grow taller and taller. It was beautiful. After about 16 hours of shoveling, first the driveway and then the leavings from the snow plow, we…

God makes all things new

This morning was the first real snow of the season. I know those of you who live in REAL snow country are chuckling. Us MidAtlantic types really don’t get much snow accumulating. We just don’t. This first round of precipitation was a lovely dusting of…

It really IS a butterfly bush!

Beauty at the Beach

Beauty at the Beach It’s a place that speaks through its silence and its beauty, in the riot of colors and variety of vegetation in the changes of humidity and the intensity of the heat in the opportunity for rest and silence… For these…

FRIDAY FIVE: Blooming things

This week I’m hosting the Friday Five over at RevGalBlogPals. You’re invited to play along in the comments if you’d like. 🙂 We often encourage each other to “bloom where you’re planted.” I like the symbolism, but realized that RevGals and Pals hail from…

A Riverside Chat: Or How The Reverend Crankypants Got Her Groove Back

I took a break from a staff retreat today and headed down to the Potomac River. It’s been many months, but I knew that getting a chance to sit near the water would do my heart good. I was a long ways from the…
