  • Grace Notes

    For Christmas I gave my husband Psalm 91.
    Not all of it, just the first two verses:
    “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
    I found an artist on the Etsy website who hand paints scripture verses, white lettering on rustic gray paper.

  • Winter gardening restores

    There is something about working in the garden on a sunny winter day: It clears debris from both the perennial bed and the gardener’s head.   
    There is clarity to the winter landscape that is quite different than any other season.  On a clear day, the sky is a true blue, you can see all the birds flitting about the leafless trees.
