Mom's Favorite Christmas Present

A few weeks before Christmas I received an email from Megan Edgeller at offering me a free 11 X 14 canvas print of a photo of my choice with the hopes of a mention on my blog.

After looking at their work on a couple other blogs, I decided to give them a try.

For the photo, I chose a picture taken by Kimberly Anderson (no relation and no compensation for this link) who did a beautiful series of family photos this summer when everyone was in town for Mom's birthday. If you live in the Foothills area, I highly recommend Kimberly, she's talented, patient, and very fun to work with.

I chose the picture above for the canvas print because I knew it would mean so much to Mom. Her 'big boys' expressing their love, and her obvious appreciation, just perfectly captures the wonderful memories I have of that birthday weekend.

Megan even expedited the shipment so that the canvas would get here in time for Christmas.

I was delighted by the result. The canvas print of the photograph is crisp and the colors are vibrant. The canvas is mounted around a wooden frame that we can later place in a decorative frame.

It should come as no surprise that this is Mom's favorite Christmas present. She loved it so much that she wants me to order copies of this canvas so she can give them to John and David.

Thank you Kimberly Anderson Photography and for creating a memorable gift.

When our spirit hungers

The precocious toddler’s interest in talking to her mother grew in insistence as the gathered group settled in for an hour of silent prayer. Shushing didn’t work, so the mother led her child into an adjoining room where she would still be part of the sanctuary, but sound would be dampened. Despite the closed door and heavy glass walls, the child’s fervent desire to speak with her mother was still audible.
I said a prayer for the patient mother determined to stay, and for the child who was either tired or hungry or impatient for Mom’s undivided attention. And then tried to bring my wandering thoughts back to prayer. I had come to Adoration with my own pressing need for answers.
Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed a growing emptiness in my heart. A void, as if something is missing. It’s not psychological. Not physical. After doing an internal check, I determined it’s a spiritual void that I’m experiencing.
No, I’m not doubting God, his existence or goodness. I have full confidence in…

Open to the Spirit - Book Review

Open to the Sprit is like reading a letter from a friend. McKnight writes a very accessible introduction to the Holy Spirit and its role in our spiritual life. McKnight uses several stories from his life and others to share how the Holy Spirit consoles and deepens our daily spiritual walk. A terrific book for those seeking an introduction to a relationship with the Holy Spirit.

Simple Spinach and Kale Fettucine

On Wednesday I picked up my first box of organic from the High Country Conservation Center’s Summit CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Way back in February, I bought a ‘share’ in this summer’s crop, which entitles me to a weekly box of organic vegetables from mid-June through October.

Now that the vegetables have arrived, I have two reactions: 1) Wow! This is so exciting! Look at these beautiful vegetables, I’m going to be so healthy. 2) Yikes! What am I going to do with four bags of greens?

For the next sixteen weeks, I want to share my culinary adventures as I cook my way through my CSA box each week. Even if you don’t subscribe to the CSA share, you’ll enjoy these recipes which focus on our summer bounty. I hope you’ll also be inspired to try more vegetable-centered meals. Now, back to those four bags of greens! 

This week’s recipe polished off two of the bags immediately. You can make this easy and tasty recipe for two or four people, just increase the amount of greens and th…
