Happy birthday to our dear, beautiful friend. I will offer my holy hour today for her intentions. I pray that her day is blessed to overflowing and that her body grants her the freedom of pain she needs to soak it all up. For healing, for joy, for peace. And the deep knowledge that she is very, very loved.

Outside my window...The sun is shining and I'm sure we're in for another steaming hot Louisiana summer day, punctuated by quick thunderstorms. That seems to be the norm lately. The flowers are starting to feel the effects. My petunias are... Continue reading
