Burst of Color


A burst of color
Beautiful colors and hues
Sharing the same home

Lessons for us all
All need the same nourishment
No one more special

I've been Hacked!!!



Click to view

Computer has been hacked
I'm angry as a hornet
Just want it repaired
~~~~~
Don't you just hate being taken advantage of?  It happens to others, but "surely not to me!"  We can certainly be naive.  And, yes, that's me!  Will be a house call by our Computer Doctor today!  Wishing all a  wonderful weekend!

Gull at Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls
Ontario, Canada

Such a handsome gull
He's holding court by the falls
Full of majesty

It was such a wonderful visit.  The Falls are captivating and just watching the gulls fly over the falls is entrancing.  Oh, to soar like the birds.  

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!

I Lost My Week

Simba napping
~~~~~

Where has this week gone
Quickly it has passed me by
I wasn't napping

Excuses are easy
Busyness is an excuse
But I can't use it

~~^j^~~
Thanks be to God!!!

Glorious Sunrise



Sunrise sunset, sunrise sunset, 
Swiftly fly the days,
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossom even as they gaze.

Sunrise sunset, sunrise sunset,
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laden with happiness and tears.

by 
Jerry Bock and Sheldon Hamick

~~~~~~~
I awoke this morning to a beautiful sunrise!  Sunrises always fill  me with such wonder and awe.  And when I see one it gives me such hope.
~~~~~~~

Sun begins to glow
So early in the morning
It lifts up the soul

Happiness and joy
From the Creator's palate
Offer quiet morn

~~~^j^~~~

Thanks to be God,

Waiting on the Tarmac




Liberty International Airport
Newark, NJ


Airplanes are waiting
With New York City skyline
Resting on tarmac

Eager to fly high
Oh, the anticipation
Waiting to begin

~~~~~~~

In 10 short days the journey to the Holy Land begins and again we'll be flying through Newark.  You can see the skyline of New York City and the Statue of Liberty from there and it is most impressive.  I have to quell my enthusiasm for this trip.  I still have to WAIT!  I am grateful for the gift of travel and for this opportunity to yet again be a pilgrim.

~~~^j^~~~
Thanks be to God!!

Good Friday




Love had died that day
The world trembled and went dark
The Savior had died

A mother's sadness
Her wounded and broken heart
Still trusted in God

Thanks be to God!!

The Road Less Traveled


HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY



“May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks.
 May your heart be as light as a song.
 May each day bring you bright, happy hours.
That stay with you all the year long.”


Took a walk the other day when the weather was unseasonably warm, and reveled in the glory of  God's creation.  I didn't see any snakes, deer, little foxes.  There were no croaking frogs or chirping locust.  Yet in all the silence I heard and felt the "breath of God!"  I was not alone.  Maybe I realized this more that day because I had no time constraints and no particular place to be, but it was a joyful moment on this "road less traveled" with a beloved companion.

~~~~~~

Though the road be long
And the journey's end unknown
Steadfastly go on

Revel in  the breeze
With your silent companion
Experience hope

~~^j^~~

Rainbow For Renewal


Rainbows add joy to our lives.

It seems I got so busy last year that my home here has taken a back seat to the other thinks in my life.  Life is good and all has been well, but for some reason A Bit of the Blarney had to be quiet.  Perhaps, it needed time to rejuvenate.  We will see.  For the time being I'b back.  

Last year became very busy.  In March we went to France and enjoyed our time there.  There was the Keller Family Reunion in July!  What a treat that was in the beautiful city of Charlotte, NC.  After Labor Day we went to Montana so we could visit the western part of the state and and especially Glacier National Park.  Sharing the time with my youngest brother and his wife was so very enjoyable. 


Beautiful forests in Glacier National Park

Last fall we returned to Italy, this time to visit Venice and revisit Florence, Assisi, and Rome.  It is such a thrill to walk where the ancients have walked.  There is just not enough time to see all that you want to see.

So this month we begin a pilgrimage to Fatima and Lourdes.  To visit those places where miracles have happened.  I want to experience this for myself.  I just cannot put into words what this will mean to me.  

~~~~~

Begin the journey
Pilgrims in Holy Places
Find solace and love

I guess that's what I hope I will find there.  Just to keep on journeying is such a thrill.

~~~~~~~
Thanks be to God!!
