Hello out there! Is anyone there? It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? Normally my absence is marked by some kind of busy-ness, imagined or otherwise, but not so this time. My last post was published when I was in California for my friends’ wedding. I was out there for a wonderful week in the warm, dry, desert among friends old and new. It was a truly joyful journey.

Also, I have returned to my pre-Camino levels of exercise and this is a really good thing. I think I was inspired to move from that Cali trip. This feels like nothing short of a miracle, and will (I hope) be very good for my health!

Lastly I have been reading more, which has been great. I am working my way (slowly) through this biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. It is a super long book, which is one of the reasons I have not tackled it previously, but I am committed to taking my time. It seems a timely volume for the era in which we live. This photo and passage is not from the book, but it is Bonhoeffer, and it does speak to these times. And for now, that is all I will say about that.

BonhoefferLent starts Wednesday of course, I hope to be back blogging more!

What have you been up to these days?

  1. We’re still here Fran. Thinking about the irony of Ash Wednesday on Valentine’s Day and Easter on April Fools Day. Mourning the passing of Wesla Whitfield. Hoping to hear more from you during Lent.

  2. Just returned from a 3-week winter escape with my husband that involved driving, cruising with a sister & her husband, visiting a brother, and moseying along the Gulf coast until northern snowstorms paused long enough to get home. For the most part I gave up news reports, the Internet, and schedules. Yielding to others’ timing, I often missed Morning and Evening Prayer and rarely picked up my journal, yet trusted that the joy in the journey was God speaking. So much beauty! as in your photos.
