Give me my scallop-shell of quiet,
My staff of faith to walk upon,
My script of joy, immortal diet,
y bottle of salvation.
My gown of glory, hopes true gauge,
And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.

~Sir Walter Raleigh

A hiker, walking for pleasure, likes to choose between several alluring trails.
The pilgrim desires only the road that leads home.

Weather Report

Quite unbelievable!
Today the sky is clear, the sun shines.

Amy Charmichael wrote long ago that "all weathers nurture souls".
Where storm, rain and hail are concerned my soul feels a bit over-nurtured this Spring.

It is a truth, the storms of life do cause growth. I'm most grateful for that fact. But for this Monday in late May, I'm dancing with the thought of warmth and bright.

As I root about in the garden I shall give thanks to the God of All Weathers but shall particularly delight in the sun This Day.


Wishing a happy Victoria Day to all Canadians.
What an amazing queen and woman she was!
