  • 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 […]

    In a sacred place sun shines through windows of stained glass reflection causes inspiration This church built centuries ago bombs of war rebuilt, standing solid now pews where others lifted prayers to Our Heavenly Father heads bowed with hope Moments of reflection rekindle fires in our being Lent can do this if we pause, be […]

  • Hope on the Coldest of Days…

    It was a bitterly cold winter night when I finished work.  As I cleared my desk, my phone pinged and I cringed.  This new app kept me apprised of all news events – which were never good – and I had no idea how to stifle it.  But this time was different.  The story of […]

  • God’s wonderful love being narrated through songs by his children…

    Understandably, we are in Lent season. However, if there was no birth of our Christ, there would have been no Lent to celebrate. Therefore, I thought this photograph puts us in the right frame of mind of the joy experienced at our Lord’s birth. This is a family of three children that I encountered playing […]

  • A Visit to Barcelona with Family

    In the spring of 2016, I visited Barcelona, Spain with members of my family. We stayed at a B&B near La Sagrada Family,* and daily walked by it until it the day of our planned tour. When we finally entered it, we were in awe and with so many others, we reverently took in the […]
