Turn The Hinges

Posted in Worship | 2 Comments

The Save The Date came first.
The wedding invitation came more than a month ago.
There was no decision as to whether we would attend the wedding or not.
This was the son of our dear friends.

The passage of time astounds me.
This young man and his sister were in our home often.
They played with my children.
As many of our friends had children, the children soon outnumbered the adults.

Just Pull Up A Chair

Posted in Worship | Leave a comment

It was an impromptu barbecue.
It was an unplanned grilling of steaks.
It was an afternoon and evening with most of my children.
Spouses and my sweet granddaughter were here as well.

Impromptu gatherings are the best kind.
As long as you have a stocked pantry, a meal can be whipped up in no time.
My husband wanted to grill steaks, so I went out and bought a few more for dinner.
I made two large side dishes of roasted fresh vegetables and a large salad.

The Masterpiece

Posted in Worship | 2 Comments

Three young boys were at my house last week.
They are all brothers.
There is one more brother who was not there since he had sports after school.
It is impossible to be two places at one time so that is why I was called.

These boys have spent quite a bit of time in our house.
Our house is home away from home to them.
As they get older in their elementary school years, they are involved in activities after school.
They swim and play lacrosse, which keeps them and their parents very busy.

Exuberant Joy

I had a forty-five minute drive.
I was enjoying the pretty day and the warm weather.
After a winter of snow, ice, and cold temperatures, the springlike weather was welcome.
My music was playing and I was singing along, tapping on the steering wheel at times.

I could see the stretch of road up ahead.
There is always a lot of traffic at this particular intersection.
Often when I come to this intersection, I turn right and go to visit my favorite Gardens.
This day I was going straight, since I had other things to do.

Dandelion Bouquet

Posted in Worship | Leave a comment

I remember the first bouquet of flowers I received from my husband.
Except, he was not my husband then.
We went to all of our high school proms together; I received flowers then as well.
However, that is not the bouquet I mean.

I remember a bouquet that was delivered to my front door.
The flowers were for Valentine’s Day.
They came from a local florist.
We were in college at the time; me in Pennsylvania and my future husband in Georgia.
