Lockdown. Hiding. Alone. Afraid. Isolated. Fear. Quiet. Rest. Alone. Solitude. Peace. Focus. These words may describe you. Some certainly describe me. We most likely experience each one at some point in our lives. During our current time of isolation, many welcome the less stressful environments, and many are afraid of being alone for an extended… Continue reading Creative Connections
Colors of the Cross
Welcome to Faith Connections Friday! Celebrate Easter with me as we imagine what may have been going through the disciples’ minds. Everything seems to be going smoothly. We followed Jesus for three years. We walked with Jesus as He entered Jerusalem on a donkey, and He was praised and honored with palm branches. All was… Continue reading Colors of the Cross
Look for the Masterpiece
Have you ever noticed the variety of colors combined to form a thing of beauty? A rainbow, a stained glass window, a bouquet, a garden of spring flowers, the mountains in the fall, a sunrise, a sunset, a mixed fruit salad, even a roll of life savers.
