Garden again


Sunflowers remind me of Van Gogh, but also Kristin’s mother Helen, whom I never met. Kristin has said many times that her mother loved sunflowers.

  1. Kristin had lovely sunflowers (compliments of Susan Clementson’s handiwork) on the altar last Sunday in honor of her mother!

    • Wow! I had no idea about that, just that she has used sunflowers before, but … synchronicity! Have you left yet? Travel mercies go with you, and a prayer. I was just reading a book of prayers from the Iona Community, and found this one for the new baby:

      As I cup my hand
      around your head
      little one,
      may God hold you
      and keep you.

      As I rock you
      in my arms
      little one
      may Christ shield you,
      and encompass you.

      As I bend to kiss your cheek
      little one
      may the Spirit bless you
      and encourage you.
      -Kate McIlhagga
