This week Cee has asked us to have fun with our PHOTOS THAT DEAL WITH SHADOWS.


Here are my photos that come out from the shadows!






Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Indoor/Outdoor Walks

Well it has been a few weeks since I have been able to partcipate in any challenges. I have been dreaming of squirreling away some time to meet Cee’s  Fun Foto Challenge again and this week my dreams come true with this post about WALKWAYS.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Events


This week Cee has challenged us to have fun with EVENTS.

Sometimes it feels like my life is one long series of events to attend. I am privileged to stand with people in many different venues.

This week was enormous event wise.

I was honored to stand with two  grieving families as they said good bye to loved ones at the graveside.


While no one relishes funerals there is probably no event in the world that brings the dual human condition of sorrow and celebration into starker contrast. We mourn the passing, honor the life, celebrate the next step of existence in hope, and prepare our own hearts for that which eventually comes to us all.

This week was also our region’s annual Relay for Life. Gardner’s relay is one of the largest cancer fund raisers in the nation.

Our prayer shawl ministry hosted the prayer tent for this event.

Dot, Diane and Karen started the booth off on Friday night at the 24 hour Relay For Life

Saturday was Men’s Ministry breakfast and then mentor coaching and then Special Touch Disabilities Ministry.

This month we did a God project making Birthday cards for a young disabled lady in Maine who had received none.

The week and weekend were full of wonderful and tiring events.

This next weekend C.cada is hosting a booth at Winchendon’s Summer Solstice Festival on Saturday and then Sunday we say good bye to one of our long time worship leaders who is moving to Missouri.
