His Mercy Endures Forever

One of the things I love is my rose garden, so I was planning to spend some time there yesterday. However, 16 hours of atrial fibrillation put that idea on hold when I was told by the doctor to take it easy for a couple of days. Since it was 90 degrees outside, I stayed in and rehung some pictures in the living room instead, a job without physical strain that I find very restful and relaxing. One of the paintings by my daughter-in-law –gorgeous pink peony roses in a magnificent frame — was so real I could “smell the roses!” My plans hadn’t worked out, but God provided a blessing anyway.

About Gardening Gran

The first time I heard Mother Cay and Mother Judy speak was in 1972 at St Paul's Church in Darien, Connecticut. M. Cay talked about seeing a bright full moon, big and beautiful in the sky above. She thought, the moon doesn't generate light by itself -- it is all reflected light from the sun, and that is how we are supposed to be--reflecting the Light of the Son. That led to many retreats at the Community, one in Bermuda, a pilgrimage to England and Scotland, and finally building a house and moving to Cape Cod in 1980. I was privileged to have been on the Liturgy Committee for the first planning sessions for the Church, and to see it grow from seeds of ideas, into what it is now. Through the years here I have enjoyed writing, studying chant (and being glad that I had taken three years of Latin in school), working as the General Manager for Paraclete Television and Video, leading Shadow Tours when the choir travelled the world, and serving as President and a development officer for Gloriae Dei Artes Foundation. I like to do all kinds of needlework, read, paint landscapes, garden, play tennis, swim, watch the Red Sox, and be outdoors. What a loving God--to plant me in such a beautiful place, on a beach next to Cape Cod Bay!
