Prayers for Newtown, CT

Prayers for Newtown, CT

Beyond belief, our hearts break.
There are no words to say how
angry, sad, repulsed we are
to learn of another tragic school massacre.

This time, the youngest children suffered
— so did their teachers and dedicated adults
who wanted to protect against bullets and rage.

We lift our prayers — what else is there to do in this moment?

Lord of all, guide those who will respond
to this tragedy. Protect all children around
the world — allow them to learn and grow
without the threat of violence. And most of
all, bind us together in compassion.

May the Spirit of Love overcome the
forces of Evil everywhere.

Daily Photo Challenge: Imitation as Flattery

Daily Photo Challenge: Imitation as Flattery

I love this metal wall decor at my friend’s house. It’s flat, one color and sits above the kitchen table. Every time I see it, I think of it as a large canvas that needs to be colored in. So I took a picture & colored it in on my computer. I may print it off and put it on a card for Christmas from our family to hers. Imitation is a form of flattery, right?

Weathered by years, standing 12 feet tall
The Guardian makes us smile
A sign of good cheer, with doll-like cheeks
We can celebrate a little, like children
And for a moment, forget that we are adults.

Walking around the NuLu area of Louisville one sunny Saturday in November, this statue peeked out   amongst greenery behind an iron gate at an antique dealer’s shop on Market Street. It was as if he was waiting there to deliver a message…..
