Odd Synchronicity....

Can I just say it was odd meeting the widow today. On my anniversary knowing that her (their) anniversary is Sunday. Knowing that they, the man whose funeral I do tomorrow, whose life we celebrate, was married in this very church 18 years ago.

RevGals Friday Five: Word Association Redux

This one is patterned off an old Friday Five written by Songbird, our Friday Five Creator Emerita:

Below you will find five words. Tell us the first thing you think of on reading each one. Your response might be simply another word, or it might be a sentence, a poem or a story.

1. vineyard grapes, wine

2. root solid, foundation, base

3. rescue God, move that rock

4. perseverance I'm tired of pushing it

5. divided a house divided, weak or strong? discuss!

(Each of these appears in one of the readings from this Sunday's lectionary.)
