I hope you find moments of serenity here…
Stay awhile... I'd like to share this part of my life with you...

For a few moments, think of all the things you love.

As for me, I adore...

...candles to light against the backdrop of evening,

logs in the fireplace to whisper peace,

the homely aroma of freshly baked bread from the kitchen,

Christmas trees and Christmas lights,

and ornaments made by the children,

featherbeds and quilts to warm and comfort us into sweet dreams,

the touch of a loved one’s hand,

old-fashioned collies, guilt-ridden hounds,

cats who come calling, then stay…

all things small and helpless…

ceiling-high shelves of great books all in a row,

a mountain range to echo the sounds of an incoming tide.


And memories…

memories of times past,

of slipper-soft Southern nights when we listened

 to sweet singing, from wooden porch chairs
,

and watched the moon rise, tattered by cypress,

crossed by swift-winged creatures.

… Sunday School,
revivals, camp-meetings
,
and coming to faith…
