This is the last of many posts I am making today ... so keep scrolling down to catch up. :-) I have had a hard time getting pictures on the computer and now that they are on... and I have some time... I just wanted to sit and get caught up with things I've been wanting to blog about.

As many of you know, six faculty members at my husband's University were shot last week- three killed. Tim attended the memorial service for one yesterday, a man originally from India, and a Hindu, and brought home the memorial sheet, which I found interesting to read- not just about the man and his family, but the quotes from the Hindu sacred book (the Bhagavad Gita). To be clear, I believe Jesus is the only way to God and I am not thinking of converting to Hinduism.... but I loved this "Prayer for Peace" which translates:

Oh Lord, please lead me from unreal to real.
Lead me from darkness to light (from ignorance to knowledge)
Lead me from mortality to immortality.
May there be peace, peace and peace.

I thought it continued my thoughts from my post from a few days ago about "Vision" and asking God to show me was is true and real.

Now, this picture below was taken by me and you might be impressed and you might think I know what I'm doing with a camera... well, I really don't. But this picture of falling snow captures for me what "peace" might look like.... so keep your eyes open for God... he is all around.
