Thank you for beautiful photos and poetry and prayers from your life in refreshment. They make me smile, and they feel like a birthday present as I finish my 8th decade in a state of wonderment-- how did this happen?! So appreciate this gift from you to all of us.

So good to take time to breathe and open our hearts to what God might be saying to us for the next part if our journey. Rest, reflect, renew, imagine, create, observe, feel. Sense God’s time.

Thank you for sharing some of your home delights ! It made me appreciate my own morning( though vastly different as a retired, apartment dweller) Instead I rejoiced in my blooming Peace Plant in my sunroom window, and tossed a toy for my black cat,Bud.. The Spirit is here as I overlook the deep Bedford Basin in Halifax , NS , as She is with you in your lovely cottage.. and we are all one! Blessings to you as you do your ‘ semi-sabbatical’ !

I always think the best gifts are hand made, or in your daughter’s case, hand blown! How special is that! Glad you’re enjoying the shift in slowing down!

A bit like Luke 9:1: we go do good works when we are SENT, we sit when we are told to SIT. As if we are puppies and God loves our enthusiasm, but knows it is in everyone's interest if we learn how to follow a few command!
