Quiet Reflections

I’m out of my routine. And I love having a routine. I’m in this vastly beautiful and different environment, yet I’ve developed a routine of a sort. My body isn’t exactly on Denmark time, and it’s not exactly on Home time either, which may make […]

Start a Fire

We left the city of Copenhagen today for a few days visit north at the shore of a fjord. Aside from being stunningly beautiful, it is windy and chilly. After days and days of rain, we finally have a hint of sunshine, but the chilly […]

Instincts

Do you hear the bells??

I love how traveling opens our eyes and ears to new sights and sounds. Take magpies for instance. We don’t have magpies in Kentucky, or at least not that I’ve seen. And swans! The lakes are full of beautiful swans, so graceful and white. I […]

Against All Odds

First, I just want to say that I am not a Phil Collins fan. Nope. I usually change the station if he comes on the radio, and I sure don’t have any of his songs on my iPod. So why have I had Against All […]

Who Do You Think You Are??

Did anybody ever ask you that question? It’s so confrontational! “Who do you think you are??” Sometimes I know exactly who I am. Other times, I wonder about that myself. “Who are we that You would be mindful of us? What do You see that’s […]

Broken Hallelujah

It’s hard to concentrate this morning. Coffee isn’t helping. I was up late talking with my son who is home from college, and then texting with my soon-to-be-a-mommy daughter through the night getting status updates. Her baby is on its way today!!!! I’m so excited […]
