Today I am remembering spring.... and all the hope and joy I felt as the earth sprang to life all around me. I found this image on one of my photo CDs, taken May 1, 2006, just over six months ago. Half way through the year again, and we are seeing the end of the growing season. Instead all around us in the northern hemisphere is the coming of dormancy. The body is fading, dying perhaps, but the spirit, the real life is only sleeping. It is an opportunity for more reflection.
"Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it."
Luke 17 (from the daily readings for today)
I wish you all a lovely Thanksgiving.

We went for a bracing walk in the cold rain this morning, which he enjoyed. He helps me see the world with enthusiasm. He is so much fun!
Working here at home, cleaning, packing, organizing. An overcast day outside, but there is nothing dreary inside. We are so blessed.
