  • Ash Wednesday…

    Ash Wednesday is our day of collective reflection and remembrance. To me Lent is a time for new life and growth, the springtime of the church season. Welcome to Marble Women’s Ministry Lenten Blog 2021! As you read each day, may you feel the warmth of friends, from near and from far. As the author […]

  • Lent is Coming…

  • It is Well with my Soul

    For our Sunday musical reflection this week, we will be highlighting a favorite hymn of so many, “It is Well with my Soul.”  As we go through dark times in our lives, for many this hymn brings them calm and hope.  Today we share two beautiful versions of the song, one with voice and one […]

  • A Garden Tour or a few…

    As many of our favorite gardens are closed to visitors this year, I thought it would be nice on this day of Spring to visit some of the world’s best gardens.  I guess these gardens are our secret… “If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”  Frances […]

  • Hope

      I barely can sense it’s shiver of awakening. But. I stop in stillness, Searching for the shimmer. In a drawn down lip-line, In a shallow breath, In a tear-drop caught in its passage. My consciousness whispers that it’s there. My footsteps inch toward it. It must be! Because. I hope for it. By Susan […]

  • Rain

    I have always envied my friends who love to live in rainy places.  There’s the friend who said, “I Iove to fall asleep to the sound of rain drops falling on my window sill.”  I didn’t understand it then, and I still don’t understand it now. I think I have always suffered from Seasonal Affective […]

  • CHALLENGING TIMES? INDEED!

    We are encouraged and strengthened by Bible verses that help us go through challenging times – times such as the present – that test every part of our character. During times such as what we are experiencing presently, it is important that we engage our mind and our heart with these good Bible verses to aid […]

  • A Prayer Board

    My current prayer board in my home office is crowded, jammed, overflowing, packed, and crammed, but it is not filled.  Each week, I update the board and use it in my morning prayers.  Collectively praying for those who need our prayers each day matters.  And it helps me to have a visual prayer list.  Who […]

  • In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks…let’s take a virtual hike together this Saturday.

    Earlier this week, the National Park Service posted these virtual hiking videos….you may get a chance to visit these spots, but right now, virtual will have to do.
