Thought I'd share a little of this and a little of that today...
Miss Kitty in the Queen's Chair
"...your vocation is to speak from the place
in you where God dwells."
~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
The Inner Voice of Love, p. 99
"It's important to empower people to say
that you don't have to be an expert;
you can begin with what you know
and build on that."
~ Margaret Hensel

THREE BEAUTIFUL SITES
I just visited these for the first time today.
FOUR SPRING FAVOURITES
1--Finding a cozy spot in the sun and
feeling its warmth on my face.
2--Watching for the first siting
of our family of tree swallows.
3--Breathing in that earthy smell as
grass greens and tree buds swell.
4--Flinging open the windows and
letting in the first breezes of Spring.
FIVE THINGS I'M READING
1--The Inner Voice of Love
A Journey Through Anguish to Freedom
by Henri J.M. Nouwen
by Henry Van Dyke, 1907
"I MEAN THAT every man owes it to himself to have some days in his life when he escapes from bondage, gets away from routine, and does something which seems to have no purpose in the world, just because he wants to do it.....
There is a benefit as well as a joy in finding out that you can lay down your task for a proper while without being disloyal to your duty. Play-time is a part of school-time, not a break in it."
3--The Sunday Philosophy Club
An Isabel Dalhousie Mystery
by Alexander McCall Smith
4--French Women Don't Get Fat
The Secret of Eating For Pleasure
by Mireille Guiliano
5--Life: Beautiful Magazine
