  • Saturday Reflection…

    “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.”  John Muir   This is a picture that I took at Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, MA.  It is of a secret pathway and the John Muir quote talks about […]

  • The Gift of February

    It can be hard to see the gift if the country you’re in is North. It can be hard to see the gift if cold walled you within a fort Of slouching and huddling And turning towards ‘in’ To seek refuge from ‘out’ And bow low in chagrin. It can be hard to see the […]

  • Angels for Others…

    “May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you.

  • Bit by Bit

      I am blessed to live on the Hudson River and look out on a beautiful park filled with glorious trees.  I watch the seasons come and go, buds form, leaves bloom, colors turn, leaves fall until the barrenness arrives. It always comes as a surprise, stark and surreal those barren branches.  The very same […]

  • Make a Trail

    Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;  God’s the one who will keep you on track. Proverbs 3:6 All too often we follow the path that others have set for our lives. As we grow up, our peers tell us how we should dress and how we should act. Our parents […]

  • Follow the Trail: Don’t Mess with the Road Map
