The Riddle

Where’s an old women to go when the years
Leave her alone with her sighs and her tears,
Gray-haired and penniless, feeble and slow—
Where’s an old women to go?

What’s an old women to do when her kin
Fail to remember that hands, worn and thin,
Cared for them, slaved for them, all the years through—
What’s an old woman to do?

What an old woman’s reward for a life
Given to others as Mother and Wife,
Leaving her faltering, furrowed and scored—
What’s an old woman’s reward?
H. E. H.

Reward...What is an old women's reward?

A Christmas Card from 1995

I love it! Murray scanned it for me.

Blogs I am reading

Check this out! We are living our dreams...Boomer Babes Rock! I enjoyed this new blog. I was one of the first 100 people to check out the site. I know it will become a popular one.

I am currently reading "Listen" Finding God in the Story of Your Life. Check out Keri Wyatt Kent's website with all of her books. I am interested in reading them all.

I am reading at the moment Listen. I do recommend it!

Threaded with Grace

A meandering thought from robin...

One thing I would really like to do in life is quilt.

I had an interesting thought today, with all of the reading on learning how to move forward with wounds that come in life I have actually been learning to quilt.

Let me explain through a prayer I wrote earlier:

Thank you God for your grace that takes my pain and sorrow and mixes it with Your love. Then threads the wounded pieces of my heart together with grace creating within my heart a beautiful quilt of many shades. This quilt, that has covered my heart reminds me of Joseph's coat of many colors. Interesting. With all of the sorrow and pain I have experienced God has given me a heart of many colors.

I am learning to guilt the pieces of my wounded heart back together through God's grace.

A nice pic

I found this picture which was taken a few days before the storm. I do live in a beautiful city.


Thank you Mom for inspiring me to post again. I will try to continue.

Blizzard of 2007

I have never been through a snow storm as the one that hit on Wednesday. The whole city of Saskatoon shut down. The major told everyone to stay home. Honestly it was wild! I could not see my neighbour's home or the tree in front of the house. The snow fall here is unbelievable. I

had two days inside...It was a holiday I longed for. I laid in bed all day on Thursday and read Leading with a Limp. What a good book. I did feel a bit down after reading it. I saw the weak points in my leadership but for some reason felt the book did not bring me back up to encourage me. Hopefully the second read will bring clarity.

Check out these two youtube clips: First one then white Christmas. They are both incrediable. It was a day to remember.
