Journey to Calvary ...



“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.’”
                   ~ Billy Graham
                          ~ 1918-2018
 A wooden Cross draped in purple for Lent stands outside Friedens United Church of Christ, Slatington, Pennsylvania on a March morning, reminding all who see it of the sacrifice Christ made for us.

Summer Song ...


“One is always at home in one’s past ...”
                ~ Vladimir Nabokov
                ~ Russian-American novelist
                          ~ 1899-1977
   ~ from his 1951 memoir “Speak, Memory”


Visitors to the 29th Belvidere Victorian Days enjoy listening to The Antebellum Marine Band in Garret D. Wall Park in front of United Presbyterian Church on a beautiful waning summer afternoon in Belvidere, New Jersey.

Victorian Days, held the weekend after Labor Day, is a celebration of Belvidere’s Victorian heritage. Festivities include live entertainment; antique, craft and food vendors; antique/vintage car show; and Victorian era demonstrations.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers. Victorian Days is a perfect time to stroll through the town and step back into a bygone era.

Southern Grace ...




“The South …
Our tea is sweet
Words are long
Days are warm
And faith is strong.”
       ~ Unknown

The warm sun of late October shines on Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church on Squire Pope Road, Hilton Head Island on a gorgeous autumn day in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
