And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need:
The sun, the rain and the apple seed;
Oh, the Lord's been good to me."
I am not sure of the author, but the words are repeated often at our dinner table.
Already I am feeling the power of my new word
and excited for the journey.
I have missed you all here as I have been recuperating from surgery a week ago.
I can feel your presence with me and the encouragement to become strong again.
Five straight hours of sleep was a real gift this night and I am so Grateful for it.
Now looking forward to resuming my ritual of drinking tea with you
and sharing in the Delights of the Heart.
Couldn't help slipping in one more Christmas photo taken at
the Old Church in Portland at the traditional Christmas concert.
Happy Monday to you all, you have been missed!
