On Saturday

Saturdays are often “off” days for me.  I flutter between doing household chores and going over my sermon time and again trying to settle myself.  All this too and fro comes from a lack of focus.  On the day before Sunday one might think that focusing would come easily; most often this is not the […]

Shelter from the storm…

It’s raining, again. I am thankful for housing that keeps me dry; housing that feels warm and gives me comfort.  I am thankful for a community of faith that keeps me strong.  I give thanks for a faith that allows me times to find shelter from the storms of life. Where do you find shelter? […]

Morning routines completed, chores in process, music rehearsed, sermons ready for the weekend, and of course some fiber work thrown in as part of the household norm.  I rinsed these skeins to set the twist and am so happy to be able to dry them outside. I might […]

Tweaking Tuesday

I love rainy days especially when I can stay home.  The darkness of the day reminds me of times at a cottage when I could sit and read or play cards.  Basically the rain seemed to slow me down, forcing me to rest and take care. Most often I hear from people the old tale […]
