"With Mother’s Day on my mind I read the scripture for today. Two words particularly jumped out at me. Refuge and Comfort. These remind me of my mother. As a young girl the town where I lived had a siren that blew each day to mark the time at noon. It was part of my life and a comfort. Once in the while it would ring out loudly at an odd time, even during the night. It was a signal to the volunteer firemen to come because there was a fire in town. It would wake me terrified, shaking and crying. My mother rocked me until I quieted down and could go back to sleep. She comforted me.
My mother was a simple, beautiful lady who made simple food that was comforting. Her popovers with homemade jam were the best. And when she was down she told me to get the teapot out and we plopped in a teabag or two and for awhile we pretended to be ladies or we pretended to be the queen. We laughed and suddenly she felt better. Her home was always tidy and clean and she loved her two girls more than I can even imagine. She created a safe place, a refuge of comfort and love.
God’s love can be both a comfort and refuge in times of struggle. In times when we are down – God holds us in loving arms and says it will be well.
My mother found refuge in God. I knew that she prayed for me
daily. She comforted me."

from wikipedia - Travel, the movement of people between distant geographical locations.
Day's journey, a measurement of distance; Road trip ...
The last road trip my "live-in gardener" and I took was to national parks.
I loved having this journey, it was a dream come true.
We hiked right here around these American Indian relics at Hovenweep National Park.
This is the Portland, Oregon train station.
Waiting for an adventure, a journey by train.
A long, most dreamed about journey to Europe and Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands.
Journey creates wonderful memories and dreams for me.
This was the last time I took a long journey outside the US.
It was 2016 and I still dream of more.
and wonderful trails.
We can journey, we can dream, we can plan
and one day the journey will be ours again.
Yes, life is a journey! If we put one foot in front of the other and move forward,
we can journey together.

He and I both love the roses in the garden.
Portland, Oregon is the City of Roses.
In the picture is the first rose to bloom this year.
It is Lady Banksia, a white rose, but some are also pink.
In honor of poem in your pocket day, just yesterday,
I am sharing a poem by a favorite poet, Mary Oliver.
