Remember who you are...

Joseph ~He will add

Kara ~Love

I'm rarely in living/family room these days. 

I almost never watch TV and much prefer to be out on the porch

sipping tea or reading a book,

or combing the beach for seaglass,

or scampering over the path through the wood

on my way to someplace wonderful.

A couple of new pillows that I picked up at the home goods store

remind any visitors that we'll be back...

Seeking Sabbath



He has told you, O man, what is good;

and what does the Lord require of you

but to do justice, and to love kindness,

and to walk humbly with your God?

~ ~ ~ fancy offering, no new clothes, no perfect house, no lovely family,

no expensive car, trimmed yard, no happy marriage, no great job...

compares to what God tells us is good:

doing justice, loving kindness, walking humbly with him.

It is only by falling to our knees that our hearts can truly be lifted. 

In the morning I go to the porch and I look out over the beauty that astounds me

and when I pray I ask God to show me the way 

to a pure heart, a loving heart, a humble heart,

21 July

The geraniums on the porch are in riotous bloom!

So sweet and old fashioned and pretty.

I took the ferry into work a few times this week!

I work in Boston and it takes about 40 minutes to get there by sea.

I'm not sure what kind of bird this is.

It was on top of one of the channel markers in the sound.

The folks next door take a walk together in the mornings before work.

I can hear snippets of their conversation as they walk past my window

on their way back home.

It warms my heart.

Mornings are lovely out on the porch

with a cup of tea

gentle sea breeze 

seagulls calling out to one another as they breakfast

all the air warming up around me

scented with geraniums, roses, and the quiet Atlantic

the commuter ferry

I took the ferry into work on Monday....
it was a pretty sweet ride.

This week I didn't have to work till 8:30 instead of 8:00 on Monday and Thursday!

The ferry arrives on the waterfront aquarium at 8:20 

which leaves me a scant 10 minutes to make it 

to the Bowdoin station....

I may even be enjoying the sweet ocean breezes as you are reading this!

17 July

the good 

 My mum and I went out to breakfast on the harbor.

It was lovely here on Sunday morning after a few days of chilly weather.

Beacon Hill, Boston

the fun

I hit the beach extra early yesterday while waiting for my husband's train.

A bit of Chia tea and my camera.... 

and some editing time on the porch when I got home.
