WPC: Favorite Place

This week The Daily Post has asked us to share pictures of our FAVORITE PLACES.

I thought this would be an easy one but oh my! Not so much. I love so many places for different reasons.


I think aside from my office my prayer room is the place where I spend the most time. It’s a place of reflection and divine connection, a place of vision and centering.

But I also love to travel and see things.

Disney is a favorite place to go and be pampered.

I love the antiquated beauty of The Netherlands.

I love the wild loneliness of Ireland.

I have so many places that are favorites for different reasons, but there is one place I have not yet been that I just know will surpass them all.



Here are some more favorite places.


WPC; “I’d Rather Be”

This week we have been asked to SHOW EVERYONE WHAT WE WOULD RATHER BE DOING.

I love what I am doing right now…writing, and I do wish I could do more of it. That said I am not a very exciting person. I actually love to just sit and watch the world go by or pray through as it does. Here are some shots of where I would love to do that.


I could just sit and listen to the water fall for hours.


The quiet of a lake is an enticing place to pray, to write or to read.

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Structure

This week Cee has asked us to share in her Black & White Challenge by displaying PHOTOS OF STRUCTURE

All of the above are concrete structures. Now here are some structures that aren’t quite so concrete. The foundation of each of these is the strongest foundation of all…love.


Brothers and sisters


The structure of prayer


Built around a song


The structure of pride in a job well done.

Share Your World Feb. 19, 2018


I am actually pretty close to on time this week with my SHARE YOU WORLD POST, which has to be some sort of anomaly that just may run the risk of ripping the fabric of the space/time continuum. So for those adversely affected by any such event allow me to apologize in advance.

Here are Cee’s Sharing questions and my answers. For those new to this challenge you can click on the underlined link above and find out all about Share Your World!


How do you like your eggs?

I love my eggs over medium with cheese on top. With a side of homefries mixed with onions, corned beef hash and a nice strong cup of coffee!

Have you ever met anyone famous?

I guess that depends on what you mean by famous and then again it depends on what you mean by the word “met”.

Since my circle is the church world I have met many “famous ministers and missionaries”. That is to say I have been in the same room with people like: Billy Graham ( I went to one of his evangelism trainings); John Maxwell (he autographed a book); Sarah Blackstone (whose parents were the first Western missionaries into Japan after Hiroshima and Nagasaki and who has given her whole life to the Japanese people);  Even my sister is becoming pretty well known in her little corner of the world.

She also works with these guys.

I had dinner and promoted a concert for these guys…

Then our church has hosted Sam Farina who is actually pretty famous as a life coach throughout the world.
