One Little Light

Have you ever been in a room filled with no light whatsoever?  It is hard to imagine how black the depth of utter darkness can be, until you experience it. Yet what is just as amazing to see is how it only takes one tiny spark of light to penetrate through that darkness. Just one…

Today’s another overcast grey morning. There’s been several of those lately, but today the rain has finally stopped. It has left the ground saturated and solemnly quiet, except for the amplified sounds of the birds chirping outback.

Grace in Black and White

I love old black and white movies. So when I heard that one of my all time favorites, “Roman Holiday,” celebrated it’s 65th anniversary, I couldn’t help but recall one of the reasons this movie has withstood the test of time: it was Audrey Hepburn.
