"G"ratitude

Geraniums - specifically red. These flowers are hardy enough to make it through a hot Arizona summer and I love the red color. They look very festive in our ceramic planter boxes with brightly painted trim.



Grand Canyon - I mean, need I say more? It is just totally awesome. Totally.
Green - as in green grass. Not much of that in the desert. And sometimes I yearn for easy on the eye green grass. For the smell of freshly mown lawn. For the feel of young grass on my bare feet.
Gratitude in general. I am grateful for opportunities to reflect on the things I am grateful for. Gratitude....

When I was in California, I missed the changing of the seasons, so I understand missing green.

Homily for the Festive Eucharist at the closing of the Episcopal Women's Caucus

The readings that we chose for the service tonight were all picked specifically for this service because they lift up the role of women ...
