Lent, Day 30: Worthy

Day 30: Worthy

“Worthy” reminds me so much of the final chorus from Handel’s Messiah: “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain.”

I loved singing the Messiah! This worshipful, dynamic chorus at the end of such musical beauty? And then, the Amen after that? Truly, a marvelous experience.

Mary the Cat with Elizabeth


Our cat #MaryTheCat is sweet and affectionate.
My husband says she nestles in my lap because I am warm and nurturing, and Mary knows that I am a mama.


That may be true, but I know that Mary is a comfort to me, too.

Lent, Day 17: Unfolding

Day 17: Unfolding

With Lent coming as the winter blossoms into spring, I can’t help but think of unfolding in association with early spring flowers.

This photo is from last spring, when my husband Kevin and I went to one of my favorite places, the Chicago Botanic Garden. Unfolding!

Lent, Day 15: Direction

Day 15: Direction


Yesterday was the anniversary of my ordination, March 15, 2017.
What a wonderful day to remember! Certainly, a day for me to affirm the direction my life has taken for the past 20 years. My anniversary, or ordiversary (as the wonderful group RevGalBlogPals says!).
Praise God for direction.
