The purple flowers are bold, bright, beautiful, cheery and welcoming today
The soft sound of the new chimes can finally be heard.
“When I was young(er) … (and) I assumed my life (had been) sorted out … It had never occurred to me that when I got to sixty-three (57) I’d be in the most appalling mess.” – P. 188, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Frye
Cheery daisies smile at me from all across the yard today, the busy bees are at their work, and I discover that there’s a baby mourning dove hanging out in the garden area.
and when all is said and done, this is what I hope…
Dear Lord, Thank you for giving me the strength to complete the task You entrusted to me. Thank You for guiding me straight and true, through the many obstacles in my path, and for keeping me resolute when all around seemed lost.
Thank You for Your protection and for Your many signs along he way.
Thank You for any good that I may have done, and I’m so sorry about the bad.

I finished the race.
I kept the faith.”
