Home Light

The light is what guides you home,
 the warmth is what keeps you there.
~ Ellie Rodriguez


Peaceful Summer Days

Monkshood and Bellflowers in my Alaskan garden.


Everybody needs beauty as well as bread,
a place to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
~ John Muir


A Spiritual Home

Prayer ~  I take time daily to be with God in silent or spoken prayer.  Prayer provides spiritual refreshment, guidance, and peace.


Keeping a Sabbath Day ~  Although I believe every day is holy, the Sabbath Day is different in that it is a day I plan to be with my family and friends outside enjoying nature - God's most beautiful temple.


Silent or Spoken Grace ~ Silent or spoken grace before a meal is so important; especially for children who are learning to know and feel the Presence of God.  Each meal is an opportunity to commune with the Light of God and to give thanks for our blessings.


Reading Inspirational Books ~  Reading inspiring spiritual books offers peace, encouragement, guidance, and spiritual growth.


Loving Home Atmosphere -  I strive to make our home a welcoming place of love, joy, peace, contentment, and kindness where the Presence of God is known and felt.



Celtic Blessings

May the blessing of light be on you ~
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.

~ An Old Celtic Blessing
