Coffee Hour

In Gratitude

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”
– E. B. White

I love “Coffee Hour,” the time after a Sunday morning service where people are invited to connect.  This is the time in our week that we tell the everyday stories of our lives. In this section of my packet I want to show you just a little of my everyday story, those things which make up my life separate from church work.  These are the things described E.B. White in the quote above; it’s those things I do to enjoy the world.

Gardening is akin to worship for me. I have a green thumb and love eating what I grow - like these peaches.lindapeach

I try to walk everyday when I can, preferably with one of our two dogs.IMG_8261
Working with my hands gives my head and heart a break. I knit when I can. I am particularly proud of knowing how to make socks. It’s the little things!IMG_0284
