After the Big Snow

December 11, historic blizzard in Minnesota, and we are running on indoor tracks.
Steps to the deck the morning after

FIVE (5) foot drift blocking our front door

Where the driveway meets the street

Closing blessing of a Christmas letter from another retired woman pastor:
"Peg Chemberlain challenged us at Plymouth Congregational on Sunday to live as a fractal of God, recreating God in all that we do. What a great ambition in a world that never needed God more. We wish you Light and Joy and Peace in the midst of Darkness, Grief, and War through the grace of God. Merry Christmas!"

From yet another retired woman pastor friend:
"We pray your waiting is also active and that with God's help you are strong of heart and staying prepared for all of life's surprises."

And from me for family Christmas gatherings: Ephesians 4:32 "Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ has forgiven you."

Wishing you joy, good choices, holy energy, blessings,
Love & Prayers

Love and prayers to you and yours, as well! (I would secretly like a little blizzard-ish snow here). :)

I hope it's improved a little bit by now, Sunshine. The blessings were nice. I had a nice Xmas w/ family, down in Newport News when my cousin, who is my age, went there with her husband to be with their daughter and her husband and their 18 month old granddaughter. Oh the household rang with the joyous chatter of a young'un. And I drove away to tgeturn home just before the winter storm hit on the east coast so I didn't run into any of it.

We appreciated reading your news, Peter.
Sorry it took long to get posted. We have a moderating feature that kicks in if the post is more than a week old. And I have been off on other projects.
