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 […]

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.

Living Between The Hedges

  It matters not what you call it – GPS, SatNav, Garmin – without a connection, lost is lost. Last week found us in the Devon region of England. It was important to be found there since that is also where we got lost. Devon is a beautiful place, a land of green rolling hills […]

What If ?

What If ?

  Two little words that pack a powerful punch. At times the punch keeps us awake at night. Sometimes it wearies our minds until we find ourselves tired and afraid. What if what goes around stops instead of comes around? /when-what-goes-around-stops/ ‎ Little words can pack a wallop! Take the word ‘to’. Putting this word where it […]

The Tree And Me

The Tree And Me

We arrived in Ireland last Saturday and have begun the process of putting down some roots in the land. Perhaps that is the reason we encountered more resistance coming in than we ever have before. Not resistance from people but rather a whirling atmosphere in the country. Aside from just pure tiredness (I only spent […]
