Thank you to everyone who responded to last week's blog post with either a comment or by sending an email, Facebook message, or Twitter response. There was so much love from all of you directed toward me as well as my family and it made quite a difference in our lives. So, again, thank you. My mother tried to post a comment response thanking you all, for she was having trouble logging in to her Wordpress account and the post did not "take". I told her I would post her message, and thought if I do that as a separate...

Bittersweet

Bittersweet. I look outside my studio window as I write, viewing a great bounty of lush green growth.   Trees, green grasses, flowers, an abundance of life that is breathtaking in its simplicity and rustic charm.  Several Amish families in open, black buggies pulled by elegant dark chestnut colored horses have passed by on the road, their children wearing straw hats in the bright morning sun. I am blessed. I look over at the watercolor painting I am working on with two swans I photographed on our river last year on a perfectly gorgeous June day.  It is amazing to...

About wishing you a Merry Christmas

The other day I stopped in at our favorite local apple grower's roadside store to buy a few pounds of apples and some fresh pressed apple cider. After paying, the lady at the counter said, "Have a nice Christmas," and I could see a little look of doubt in her eyes as if she wondered if it was okay to say "Christmas" to me. I smiled and said, "Merry Christmas!" She relaxed, smiled and said, "Merry Christmas! It is so hard to tell what to do say these days." In response I said, "Let's not have our communication stifled by...

The true meaning (or a better meaning) of "righteous"

Our little world is in a bit of trouble, and someone needs to do something effective to turn things around. But, who can we turn to? Who has the power to turn things around in a little world so seemingly large?  World leaders?  Politicians?  Celebrities?  The media?  Who. Two thousand years ago, give or take a couple hundred years, someone had the idea it was the every day people who could make the biggest difference, because that is who he brought his message to.  A message of love.  Love your neighbor. He gave his message to you and to me,...
