Monday Thereafter

There are times I think about the friends of my youth and some of the things we did. Or I’ll hear a song from the 60 that reminds me of someone and I wonder, “when you hear that song Cecelia do you think of me?” Then I realize my life is now and I need to cultivate friends now. Tend the friends I have now. Laugh, cry, be vulnerable yes good start.

Ok gotta go meet someone for coffee. Laters

Easter eve

God we wait till morning to shout and proclaim the joys of new life in Jesus.

A friend in India wrote it this way Chandan Kumar

Have blessed day Jesus chooses to lay down on the cross in place of us so that we can have life.

So great is his love for each one of us. Let us praise and worship Him.

May this ressurection day inspire you to new hope, happiness, prosperity, and abundance, all received through God’s divine grace. Have a Blessed time with your friends and families…. *Happy resurrection day*


the other evening as I was leaving NewLife PCUSA, Abq, I got in the car but hesitated a moment before I started the wipers. The setting sun and horizon illumines the rain as so many crystals. It was a lovely way to unpack the day.

Don’t be so hasty in your days that you miss the crystals where they may be found

Wednesday is Coming

Why is everyone so cheering golfer Tiger Woods. Because though you know all to well his poor decisions, his addiction, his bodily pain… he changed as did all the other situations. He changed. Repented and then came back to who he truly was. As his mother congratulated him when he won the Masters, “I’m proud of you”. That blessing. He was restored.

We all want to be restored to who we are.

Easter called us to restoration. Receive the blessing. Holy Week walk before us

Holy Weak

Holy Week

we are wholly – weak

Filled so full with grace -healed -hearts

and lives filled with busy

(a four letter life-word of many)

and contrasted

to the empty-ness

of the tomb

which itself was so full

of the love of God

it could do nothing less

than break open.

give us heart-room to be so filled

with the love of God

that it will spill over

and our lives burst with joy

Easter morning comes

again again again

again again

joy to the world….

Jesus lives.

bobbie mcgarey 2005

ah we are weak but thou art strong

God go with you

Wednesday before Holy Week

Holy Week and I am Wholly Weak and surrender to the coming of Jesus

Open my heart like the gates of the city that my Savior can live in my heart

Let me stand at the parade lay down my life

Let me sit by his and drink of his cup and eat of the bread

May I stay at the cross and not turn away

May I run to the tomb and be

Ecstatic in its emptiness

Monday New Week

. It is my Grandson Ian Maurice’s first Birthday. He was born on an Easter Sunday. A gift.

I arrived as he arrived. Love bursting in the room.

In Lenten time we work to be thankful for all the days we have to prepare for Easter.

Enjoy and appreciate each breath.
