Christ in Risen!

The sun shines as I wake, tired from a late night interrupted by sleepess-interruptuss, after a draining day of flying.

So I missed the sunrise. Well I didn’t miss seeing, I just missed being atop the hill at sunrise with my camera.

Some call it fluff, others call it the Holy Spirit. But we all need some of it, sometime.

if we know how we made them.

And much of the joy of life is enjoying the mistakes we make, as they are enjoyable, and enjoying the mistakes of others,

all with grace.
