Let me give the words a rest and allow images to prevail. A self indulgent post as these are a few of my favorite things. All taken with my phone. Under each picture is a brief commentary.
I drove by this field in New Orleans last week.
Last November near our home.
At the pump station along the levee just after a flooding rain

My daughter Catherine’s art before completion (note it’s made of the letters of her name)

My daughter’s annual Christmas building project
An Icon in the Omaha Cathedral of St. Cecilia. By means of this icon Christ, back in the summer of 2013, taught me two things. First, how to accept being looked *into* by those all-seeing Eyes. Second, how to accept being looked into with love, without shame. From that I concluded icons are not windows for looking into Heaven, but windows for being looked into by Heaven.
