Three Photo Weekending.

I have only three photos to share from this weekend. They may be few, but they are mighty 🙂

The sun was out on Saturday and it was lovely. I took a solo morning walk to the lake. Solo is key for capturing these kinds of #blueskyblooms.

Marc played golf and I indulged in some quality time with myself and a few magazines. I was reminded how much I love baths and bubbles! I think my last bath was last February, when we were in Los Cabos (the bubbles and the room were infused with the same scent and it was … wonderful).

All that alone time was wonderful preparation for yesterday’s Gifts of Women service(s) (we have two service each Sunday, one at 9:30 and one at 11:00). I only had a speaking part at the 11:00 service, but was there for both, just to be sure everything ran smoothly (and of course it did).

The pastor who led the service offered a moving sermon, titled “Crossing Boundaries”. I heard the sermon twice and was just as moved the second time. This line especially resonated with me

When God nudges us outside our comfort zones, amazing things can happen. ~ Reverend Caitlin Phillips

She opened her sermon talking about how she’s taken up a new hobby – researching personalities … Myers-Briggs and the Enneagram. It was a nice segue into my afternoon (a little more quiet time after five hours of “on” time at church!) with The Sacred Enneagram.

(as I typed this, I wondered what type Emily Dickinson was … apparently there’s an answer … and another podcast episode to add to my queue!)

A few weeks back I promised to share the bulletin insert “we” (mostly Caitlin and Katie, our very talented Communications Director) compiled. Here you go

I love that “Of course they may be right” mantra (and who knows … maybe I’ll even try it!) But mostly I love being part of a church that embraces and celebrates differences.

and taking that last bullet to heart, I hope your week is off to a “pizza start”!

Happy Monday!

  1. I think I’m going to give that “Of course they may be right” mantra a try! What a nice church community you belong to Mary. And oh…that tub 🙂

  2. I love those blue sky blooms! Sunny daffodil faces are my favorites!! And, they just sing SPRING!

    And, you go for that marathon day at church! Wow! And, I do love the “of course they may be right” mantra. That is a tough one to swallow, much less say! Thank you for sharing xo

  3. I don’t know if I’m brave enough to try “Of course they may be right” (and actually mean it) but that may be the very reason I should try it. How interesting!

  4. Like Bonny, I’m not sure I would be sincere in saying “of course they may be right” – lol….especially at work! The Pizza line is a great one too!

  5. That bubble bath looks so relaxing. I honestly don’t remember the last time I took a bath, and now I am seriously jealous!

  6. “Of course they may be right” depends on who “they” are and right about what? And not to say that I am or know all/any answers…just have a lot of questions and I am willing to listen/think, for the most part…

    The daffodils are lovely, I recognize that pencil and who’da tho’t someone would ascribe the Enneagram to authors and fictional characters?

  7. wise words with of course they may be right (my inner mantra would think I’m right). Lessons to learn. I love the bubble bath shot and your confidence that you would NOT drop the phone or camera! You live on the edge 🙂
