  • Your Gifts

    Matthew 6:21…for where your treasure is, your heart will be also. Shared by Susan Ceely Phillps

  • Sometimes Heaven…

      Sometimes, Heaven is right under your feet –                   shoes off, velveteen blades                   caressing your sole – soul. Sometimes, Heaven hides behind your furrowed brow –                   the right moment to crawl down your cheek                   in a single tear into the light of day. Sometimes, Heaven floats on the gentle currents above […]

  • Lamb of God

    Every time I pass Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church on East 22nd street in NYC, I stop to look at their signage board because I know there will be a challenging message. So, October 25, 2016, was no exception. It was just days before the presidential election and when I read it, I smiled. I read […]

  • Let there be Peace on Earth

    My daughter and I were sight-seeing with friends when I came across this street in Mont-Saint-Vincent in France in the Spring of 2016. I was captivated by the stillness, beauty and simplicity of it, namely the colors of the sky, the trees, and flowers. After a lovely picnic across from it, we drove down the […]

  • Almost Tulip Time…

    As we edge closer to Spring, I wanted to share my favorite part of the season, tulips.  The flowers just make me happy and while their season is short, I know that as the flowers fade, the spring season is here to stay. I have shared a couple of my favorite tulip pictures, some red, […]

  • The Storm before the Calm

    I took this picture very early on Monday morning.  As I was parking my car on 128th Street in Harlem, I had a moment to catch this beautiful sky.  The wind was very strong and it was tossing these leafless branches back and forth.  Looking past the branches were dark clouds, but behind it there […]

  • On Praise

    Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. This photo was taken at a former Portuguese fort in Casablanca.  The fort now houses a restaurant where we had dinner on my third night in the city.  The setting was so beautiful and unusual that I […]

  • God Just Wants us to Love Each Other

    On a recent trip to Italy, I was moved by what I saw at the St. Ignatius or Sant’ignazio di Loyola in Rome.  The church is an impressive Baroque style church, but it was the work of Vincenzo Pandolfi (1905-2005) that really moved me.  In the picture above, there is a replica of many churches […]

  • Take a Breath

    Take a Breath Quiet now. Hushhhhhhh… Are you still? Take a breath. One breath. You are there. In that one breath. You and all that connects you to this world. Seems so simple.   Shared by Susan Ceely Phillips

  • Tea with Nana

    I am sure you have one of those pictures that you wished was better.  My Mom has her eyes closed, the photographer left her thumb in the picture, my sister would have rather been in pants, it is a bit blurry, and I wished I weighed a bit less.  And Nana might not be happy […]
