and if you have mittens, you will be in fine

it has NOTHING to do with Global Warming… words spoken from Bill Riley

(thank you, David Kanigan!)

Live & Learn

“Snowmageddon, heading for the Northeast.  You guys who live in the Upper Midwest or the Rocky Mountain Region laugh, laugh at a foot of snow. You laugh at it. You mock it. Because that can happen in May! But tomorrow here in New York City and up and down the East Coast, there could be more than a foot of snow. The Panic is on. People are buying entire cows to make sure they have enough meat. 18 flashlights. Canned soup that will last for 80 years. You get the idea. Weather forecasters hysterical, many of them breaking down. Already many schools are closed. People have been seen weeping. Here’s the tip of the day. Overreaction is never a good thing. If it snows tomorrow, build a snowman, have some fun. It has nothing to do with Global Warming. And if you have mittens, you will be fine.”

Listening to the quiet – Sunday’s Door

Door of the day… (Tintern Abby in South Wales)

No doors to close or ceilings to contain – room for the wind and spirit to move, drawing seekers near. On faith we enter this sacred space.

Through it may we find renewal and inspiration.

“I can hear the hush.” – reflection on my Facebook page  as I shared this morning’s ‘door’. Recently I have come noticed more postings with quotes having about silence. Silence and its ability to calm and heal the unsettled heart. 

We are living in a time when unsettled hearts are too common. Seek the places/moments where a hush can be heard. May the brief quiet bring calm. 

Without words


God, take my soul to that place, where I may speak without words.

Sunday’s door 

 

Standing before these two doors I can’t help but smile. They are unique both in color and shape. Passing through either door could feel like the beginning of an adventure.
We wake to another day filled with choices. Whether routine or unexpected – choices are always before us.

They can feel overwhelming – maybe because the choices we make are often held close to keep the options near (in case we change our minds). But like the passing of a minute, making one choice moves us forward on a unique path. It is best to follow that path with a lighter load.

May today’s choices feel settling and even bring delight.

The week begins-

there are places of delight and beauty to discover along the way. Be they small or large, take note. These treasures can give room for breath in the midst of a busy day.

A passage of stone and ivy

We tread where many have gone before.
Imagine the stories this path holds safe- stone and ivy.

All in Good Time- Friday’s door


The past, the present and a hint of the future – this is how we are created over time. We only know what is beyond a door by pulling on its old hinges and walking over its threshold. These actions often come with feelings of eagerness and hesitation.

All in good time… until then may you find blessing in the beauty of new growth and the strength of steps taken before you.
