Photo Friday - Blue

Yellowstone Lake - Yellowstone National Park - August 2014
The big blue sky over the lake and the wonderful reflection - lots of "blue" going on here.

From the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland.
I focused on that little ladybug and the ocean made a beautiful backdrop

Photo Friday - Park


This past summer we went to Yellowstone "Park". There we saw LOTS of buffalo. This one on the left decided to "park" his butt on the road, which slowed down traffic for miles.

When I Die...

Some of you know that I sing in a Christian community choir. We have been practicing a song by Keith Getty and Margaret Becker that I love. It has an Irish kind of sound to the music which is wonderful, but the words are so great too.  The name is "Jesus, Draw Me Ever Nearer (May This Journey)". After we sang it this week I told Bill I want this read or sung at my funeral.

Jesus draw me ever nearer
as I labor thro the storm
You have called me to this passage
and I'll follow, though I'm worn.
May this journey bring a blessing; 
may I rise on wings of faith.
And at the end of my heart's testing, 
with Your likeness let me wake.

Jesus, guide me thro the tempest; 
keep my spirit staid and sure. 
When the midnight meets the morning, 
let me love You even more. 
May this journey be a blessing, 
may I rise on wings of faith.
And at the end of my heart's testing, 
with Your likeness let me wake.

Lord draw me ever nearer!
Let the treasures of the trial
form within me as I go.
And at the end of this long passage
let me leave them at your throne.
May this journey be a blessing, 
may I rise on wings of faith.
And at the end of my heart's testing, 
with Your likeness let me wake.

With Your likeness let me wake.

And if you can get my ashes to Ireland, spread some at Glendalough!

Photo Friday - Falling Apart

I loved the monastic ruins at Glendalough, Ireland.  This is a part of an arch that was in the cathedral, which is now just a shell. By the zigzag pattern they could tell that there was a Roman influence in the building of the cathedral.
