The Quotable


May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
and Irish blessings in your heart!

Mosaic/ Macro Monday

Desert Beauty 1
Being here in Tucson has offered me the opportunity to reflect on those things I take for granted and the things I learn to appreciate.  

I have taken for granted the diversity of peoples and the ways they live.  I forget that all that is created by God has value and worth, even the cactus and the dry earth. Never must I forget these things and become so complacent in my environment that I allow these insights to lose their importance.


The desert beauty
Under the winter sun gives
The hope of New Spring

Thanks be to God!!!

Stop by  The Little Red House and offer words of encouragement to Mary.  Mosaic Monday is postponed this week due to the devastation in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.   Visit Macro Monday,  too.  Lisa has a wonderful time planned for you.  The pictures all are an inspiration!
