There’s something about being in ‘the great outdoors,' in the cathedrals of the forest, immersed in the speading scenes and vast vistas.

We have so much for which to thank our God.

Thanksgiving could be thanks-living, each and every day.

Once again autumn has come to us. It is sheer gift. There is a moral aspect to it (as you will note below).  I am always somewhat somber and sad as fall days unfold.


ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father; We have erred, and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts.

Knowledge is great, but what to do with it? We need wisdom - but where to find it?

"The earth is the Lord's... Psalm 24:1

We belong to the One who created us. And we are privileged to be stewards of all creation (not that we've been very good at it).

Psalm 42 describes the longing - and the memories of satisfaction known in the past, for God moments.

Each new day is precious, as is life itself.

With the original Creation, we rejoice in the creative wonder and possibilities that this day will bring forth.


I love all of the Seasons, though as I age and my Raynaud's Syndrome progresses, my appreciation for the colder weather wanes.

I love Spring the most, je pense.


We love God who first loved us.
