Silent Sermon Sunday


A new moon teaches gradualness
and deliberation
and how one gives birth to oneself
slowly.
Patience with small details makes perfect
a large work, like the universe.

Rumi

Happy Sunday, Holly darling.

Sorry I've been MIA so long from Blogland. Been super busy, traveling, and basically hibernating through this bitter cold winter. Yuk. I am SO ready for warmer weather.

Good to see you. I'll try not to let so much time slip by between visits.

Love you.

A new moon teaches me to remember my flashlight when I go for walks on icy country roads in the dark!
Seriously though, I love that picture...(painting?). Are you the artist? (Although I'm thinking if you were you would've drawn in a scottie instead of a cat)

I always look forward to your Sunday Sermons. THey're a great way to start the week.

I'm on vacation next week in search of warm weather. Hope your week is a good one. I'll be back soon.

Stay warm yourself. In comparison to PA, I have nothing to complain about, but you know I'm a wimp :-)

Love you,
xo
