A beautiful quote shared with me today by my Christianne...

"Sometimes we feel that the busier we are, the more important we are—as though our busyness defines our worth. Brothers and sisters, we can spend a lifetime whirling about at a feverish pace, checking off list after list of things that in the end really don’t matter.

"That we do a lot may not be so important. That we focus the energy of our minds, our hearts, and our souls on those things of eternal significance—that is essential.


"As the clatter and clamor of life bustle about us, we hear shouting to 'come here' and to 'go there.' In the midst of the noise and seductive voices that compete for our time and interest, a solitary figure stands on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, calling quietly to us, 'Follow me.'"

- Joseph B. Worthlin

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."

~ Melody Beattie

Love this baby!

Under the Harvest Moon




Trip to Phoenix last week...



I always wondered if the church photos of temples were "doctored" - you know, the skies in the background - maybe someone enhanced them to make them bluer....but I can tell you that the sky that day in Mesa, Arizona really WAS this lovely deep blue. That same night as the sun set...the sky was the most beautiful shade of of turquoise - wish I could have captured it with my camera. It was a nice visit to somewhere I've never been before!

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.
