‘Touched By Kindness’

I’ve been touched this week – by the many acts of kindness that I have seen – and heard about – in response to those who are suffering because of this latest war. There has been an outpouring of generosity – which – as someone once said – is “the most natural outward expression –…

‘Love Is Not Blind’

This Blog post is simply a copy of a poem -(I felt that nothing else needed to be added) – written this last week by our son – I found it so beautiful – I couldn’t help but share it – with his permission – of course – so thank you Steve Love is not…

‘Standing In Awe’

I was reminded of a song this week – one that has always had a special place in my heart – it’s a song about’ standing in awe’ of God – and brought back to mind certain times in my life when I have experienced that strong sense of awe. The song speaks of God…
