My walk today felt all about light… like I failed to find what I was looking for. But when I thought about it. There’s darkness and shadows in these pictures too. There’s always darkness where there’s light #darkness #põuri

Slowed. Stopped. Redirected… when will we be delivered? Deliver to us. Deliver us from.  #deliver #tuku

This might seem a little silly but… we’ve 3D printed a fairy door for the garden.

Where my goddaughter and I tackled a jungle of weeds, there is now a bed of flowers and a little stack of logs to provide habitat and nectar for bugs, bees and butterflies in the garden.

A fairy door might seem like a childish thing, but I have believed in things I cannot see for as long as I can remember… I hope I always do that. I hope my goddaughter does too

John 11:32-54

I haven’t said or written much since we have begun sheltering in place.  I’m a little nervous to do so now.   I am humbled by the pandemic.  I am awed by it.

I believe that God is with us and that we are with each other – the profound truth that we are in this together.

There is a story about the Chinese Master, Lau-tzu and his disciples:

Lent word: Live

I’m spending some time in the garden for the first time in ages. It requires being present. It requires paying attention. Many things have gone to seed. Some are already sprouting away on their own. This is the cycle of life: the dying and the living. #live #ora

Lent word: Haere

Today’s word is haere… go.
