Sunny Tuesday ~ 5th Week of Great Lent ~ 2014

 Here we are.
Sunshine on a Tuesday nearly not-morning
and things are racing around like 
cats chasing a catnip toy, but perhaps worse! :)
But some good things and peaceful things of this day...
My beloved has a birthday around this time of year
and he was given these lovely, cheery, beautiful
yellow tulips for his birthday.

We are just loving them.

I am loving my window sill and savouring the light,
the beauty and this small place of light...

I always want my homes to be places of light,
of beauty, of icons, the warmth of Christ,
the hope of the Saints and the 
protection of the Holy Spirit... 

 It is a real challenge to keep
one's eyes on Christ,
the One who saves us,
who we can walk to with steady steps,
regardless of the waves that may surround us.
May Christ have mercy on us and help us!

Those windows and all the light - truly a blessing. It's an example of how God gives gifts to be appreciated no matter what the setting. My big house in sunny California doesn't have so much light coming in. :-)

Your words, as always, are peaceful and calm. Love the light!

Yes, regardless of the waves... He said, "Peace, be still." And the wind and the waves obeyed Him. What a wonderful thought. Lovely flowers!
