What's It All About?

It's all too easy for days to pass without reflection. It's my hope that through a greater active awareness on each day, that I will be able to consider God's presence in my life and in the world around me. Writing has always been a way for me to round up my thoughts. This blog seems like a good place to park those thoughts for my own benefit as well as the benefit of others. Please take a moment to read what I have written, to offer comments, and to share the ideas with others.

Plummy Goodness!

Gifted Plum Goodness!
It's important to look hard for signs and happenings. Not everything is obvious at first as being a gift and I think it's OK to look, to assess, and to assess again later. 

I had a rock hit my windshield today on the way home and it made a crack. The windshield is fairly new too-within the year I would say. I am glad though that it wasn't worse. The rock breaking my windshield doesn't seem like a gift does it? Or, maybe it does.

As I was driving home, that rock made me think and remember what was sitting in a bag on my backseat. Not every gift comes from a store or is wrapped up. Though, admittedly, this one came in a plastic bag! I had lunch with my girlfriend today and she brought me some lovely plums from her Dad's tree. Such beautiful colors! I hardly want to eat them. They are destined for some jam I think. My grandmother used to make the most wonderful plum jam. I remember eating it and it makes me feel like a kid again (sort of)! As I said, not every gift comes in a package.

  1. Dearest Libby- catching up on your posts here. Your photo of the moon was gorgeous. I love walking in the moonlight. I have a close friend who does the same. You are so right about the connection we share. Looks like you found a lovely spot to vacation and be renewed. Each day brings an opportunity to start afresh. That is a gift as well. Now for that plum jam I am hopping a plane- that is indeed a wonderful gift. Sorry about the windshield- just glad you were safe. Thanks for sharing your insights. I am always glad to read yours.


I am not into censorship but instead just feel that some caution is in order. Please comment freely.
