The view from here

It has been sunny.
I still have a cold.
1 week now.
Jim and Nancy Forest's blog is one I found a few months ago;
I am glad I did!
It is still lent,
in case you did not notice.
Things like eternal head colds,
small apartment woes (smoke again),
and other things
must not get us down.
We must seek to be gentle with each other;
we are all going through a great battle.
We must, as Elizabeth Goudge reminded me in
one of her books I re-read this week,
possess our souls in patience.

Thank you for the link to Jim and Nancy's blog, I had not seen it before. If you look for Jim on Flickr he has some fantastic photos,including a series from the glorification of St Maria Skobtsova.

I hope your cold gets better soon - and there is an answer to the smoke problem. I think the landlord should be doing more than advocating saran wrap somehow.

I have a cold too - heal quick! I'm enjoying lots of tea with monastery honey. :-)

Oh my goodness, I love the last line. And, prayers that your cold gets better. There is definitely one going around here.

I find colds tend to last 2 weeks no matter what I do. Sunshine helps it seem shorter, though! I've been so glad we've had some here lately.
