Delicate purple flowers

Image

Hints of frost damage upon leaves

and delicate purple blossoms

still seemed to request 

my favor, to promote 

and capture beauty.

Alas, I felt torn but 

their tiny, precious 

voices prevailed 

to entreat me.

I now finally

“get” why

Dr. Seuss

had his

caring elephant,

Horton, hearing a “Who.”

~~~~~~~~~~

“Horton Hears a Who,”

written in 1954, was

dedicated to his distant friend,

“For My Great Friend,

Mitsugi Nakamura

of Kyoto,

Japan.”

“Perspective”

This quote is from our

First Presbyterian Church

monthly newsletter called,

The Spire:

“Nothing that is worth doing can be

achieved in our lifetime; therefore we 

must be saved by Hope.

Nothing which is true or beautiful or 

good makes complete sense in any 

immediate context or history; therefore

we must be saved by Faith. Nothing we

do, however virtuous, can be

accomplished alone; therefore we are

saved by Love.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr

~~~~~~~~~~

Those who “stay awake and wait,”

Hope your sunrise Dawn brushes
away the tears from your

Midnight Vigil tonight. ❤

Thursday’s Doors ~ coffee shop, Women’s Room

Image

Probably one of only a few door posts

featuring a public bathroom!

This is a necessity if you are 

sitting, sipping and chatting

for any length of time.

Coffee is as you know,

a natural diuretic.

I liked the natural 

wooden art designating 

“Women’s Restroom.”

There’s links to more doors,

you may find one that suits you

or is your “cup of tea,” on 

someone who hosts,

Thursday’s Doors. His name

isn’t Joe; it’s Norm Frampton!

Please check out my first 
posts with the exterior doors

of Cup O’ Joe.

Thursday’s Doors ~ Inside Cup O’ Joe

This young lady graduated from

my alma mater, BGSU. She liked 

talking to Bill and me, after we 

had seen “The Zookeeper’s Wife.”

She said the Holocaust and WWII

were serious themes and was excited

to view “Beauty and the Beast.”

This is a part of a series of 

door photos which has a

Leader in Norm Frampton,

who allows us to post links

on his amazing Canadian 

blog found at:

Thursday’s Doors ~ Cup O’ Joe

This is the front door of

Thursday’s Doors,

a coffee shop nearby many 

restaurants and a movie

cinema complex.

Plenty of guests, quiet 

and calm setting found here,

inside the doors, warmth exudes.

Please visit our friend who may

enjoy a cup of coffee,

Thursday’s Doors ~ Cup O’ Joe’s

Image

This is part of a chain

of coffee shops, 

the grand cup atop 

building displaying its wares.

Pleasant and warm interior,

fireplace showing gas flames.

Quiet but low level discussion

being held at one table while many

coffee drinking “solos” spread 

scattered around the cafe.

Bill orders a chocolate torte, along

with a vanilla cappuccino with 

whipped cream. He pays in cash,

as I have studied menu and order

a regular sized coffee, “shot” of

caramel with “room for cream.”

We proceed to talk with the 

friendly female barista. She

enjoys a few friendly exchanges.

Check the post with the interior 

photo of the counter, picture of

cute “Tips” cup which we both added to!

Thursday’s Doors has a leader,

Norm Frampton, who welcomes

door connections and displays links on:

April’s full pink moon

Image


The moon has a slight pink tinge.

April has been given by the

Native Americans the label,

Full Pink Moon.

Seeing the attribute of pink

may seem like a stretch.

I would call it ~ 

“Everything’s coming up Rosy.”

Just can tell the weather has 

taken a turn for the better!

xxxxxxx

Moon rising over the fence,

May you shed your light into 

baby’s windows. Let it help comfort

him so he will get used to sleeping

in his own special crib. May it

bring Mommy and Daddy 

time to cuddle and dream.

Hendrix is being weaned from

breastfeeding, giving much peace 

to son and his wife who need to

feel closer. Life’s challenges have

been ones which hurt their souls.

T. C., close childhood friend 

of James, lost his will to live 

when his Dad passed away of cancer.

It is pulling the family together,

as two other deaths outside 

family did. Inside our 

hearts will beat

as One.

 ❤
My bonnie lies over the ocean,

My bonnie lies over the sea,

Bring back my bonnie to me.

~~~~~~~

Lullaby and good night!

xoxo

love

hope

peace
