Singing In The Rain

Singing In The Rain

Dear Friends,  This coming Wednesday Jim and I lead a pilgrimage to Ireland and Iona, retracing the steps of Columba who lived in the 500’s. I have finally given in and joined the world of Instagram and hope to post there, so if you’re an Insta-grammer that’s where you may follow along. I’d love to […]

Lost And Found

Lost And Found

  There is one requirement to being found: someone must be looking. Yes it is true that one can be found unexpectedly or by surprise, though discovery by chance is most common when considering objects: one can find a lost set of keys or find their destination by happening to take the right turn. When […]

At The End Of The Day

At The End Of The Day

  “One must wait till evening to see how lovely the day has been.” It is 6:30 in the morning Pacific Time and I’ve just had an evening moment. Funny, isn’t it, how one innocent little movement can unexpectedly stir one’s soul into awakeness and awareness. This morning it was the pool skimmer that did […]

A Curious Find In An Unexpected Place

A Curious Find In An Unexpected Place

  Though we now live in the mountains we don’t get out much. That is, we haven’t done much in the actual mountains since moving here as winter came and had a hard time leaving. It was a fine winter as winters go, but it didn’t do much for my longing to walk on a […]

Yes Fear

Yes Fear

I know it is ‘No’. No Fear. The slogan is plastered everywhere, particularly on the rear window of large pickup trucks. It makes me wonder why the drivers of said trucks need a reminder and what fear it is they are driving against, but that’s another blog for another day. Those who have heard my […]

When I Am Me

When I Am Me

  Perhaps the only thing better than heading out is heading home. Born an adventurer, heading out is in my veins. Born to be a mom, heading home is a dream. One that sometimes comes true. Those who know a bit of my story know I began to love Ireland, the UK and Europe early […]

When Everything Goes Right

When Everything Goes Right

  It was one of those dreams that was so intense I needed it to end. Sometimes you can wake yourself up from a dream and sometimes you can’t. I was able to pull out of this one but not soon enough! In this dream I was on trial and it wasn’t pretty. The sense […]

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Ah, those colorful doors of Ireland! Whether you’ve been to the fair island or not you’ve seen them in photos, door after cheery door painted bright blue, red, yellow or green. On a fine soft day, a day of lashing rain or in the clear, bright sunshine, these doors evoke a smile. Inviting, yes. Whimsical, […]

Rahab’s Mighty Little Faith

Rahab's Mighty Little Faith

Moses, the great and fearless leader of old.  Can you imagine having as much faith as Moses? He was a great leader, but at the moment of destiny he was not fearless. In fact he was so intimidated he got permission from God for his brother Aaron to do the talking while he did the miracles. Have you ever […]

Tending Mustard

Tending Mustard

  Have you made it big, yet? Had a big idea? The bigger the better, so they say. BIG seems to be the ideal, the goal, the sign of success. And yet very many little things have filled my life these first months of 2017. Keeping track of little things requires a lot of work, […]
