This week Ailsa has asked us to MAKE HER HEART FLUTTER WITH OUR PHOTOS.

So here are some flutterings from around the world.


Snow flutters at last in WInchendon MA. We have had precious little snow this season and we desperately need the moisture.

Netherlands 2013 A Walk To the Jagersfeld

One of the great blessings I experienced during my recent trip to the Netherlands was a visit with my sister’s friends Willem and Mirjam Jackson. The Jackson’s have been good enough to open their home to me on both of my trips to North Holland and to extend the right hand of fellowship.

On this trip we all took a three hour tour of the neighborhood including a walk through the Jagersfeld (hunter’s field).

This neighborhood is near Willem and Mirjam's complex. It is a walk only neighborhood.
