19 degrees

It snowed a lot while I was away.  Snow covered landscapes are beautiful.  One of the prettiest snow-covered scenes is my own front door.  I am grateful to be home.  I am grateful to have had a wonderful weekend with my blogging peeps.  

I got to go to a new cathedral in Houston yesterday.  It was so very beautiful.  The music was beautiful - lots of latin, violin, piano, organ, and highly trained human voices.  Then I got to have breakfast with Scott's sponsor, who is a wonderful man.

Today I will be back to work.  There will be lots to do.  There will be lots of catching up to do.  But I have the energy and hopefully the time to do it.  Tonight, I will stop at church for an hour of silent prayer, and then I will go to Biblical School.  Mondays are long, but intensely rewarding days.  

Thank God for the life I have today.  So far from where I was... and I am grateful for that.

Happy belated Thanksgiving...glad you enjoyed your trip to Houston. The last line of your post is so true and I find myself saying the same thing quite frequently. I feel unbelievably lucky to have what I do now.

Still here, Mary. SOMEone had to stay home...well, actually, we were also out of town on Thanksgiving Day-grin-

But you got to "Fly away", above the clouds and sky, and meet with "your people". Glad you had a great weekend. Glad you're back...safe.
