BEAUTY
By Eugene H Peterson

He had no form or comeliness

that we should look at him,

and no beauty that we should desire him.”
-Isaiah 53:2

A whiff. A beagle for beauty I sniffed
Monet’s haystacks, Van Gogh’s sunflowers,

Devoutly meditated Marilyn’s breasts,

Hi friends, I'd thought I'd share this sweet mix of peonies and roses to start my letter today. I love the burnt orange of the roses, very autumnal I think. Maybe this is a perfect transition bouquet from a summer to autumn palette?

How do you transition into Autum...

I popped out for a 'quick' walk with my son Tuesday (in-between exam study a quick walk is always the tonic) We came across the most generous Horse Chesnut tree and how could I ignore these shining beauties, no I could not, and neither apparently could...

Happy Sunday friends wherever you are 💛 I saw an image last week of a cut up lemon, the centre pulp was minuscule, almost invisible. The caption read ‘when life throws you lemons - 2020’. I know this lockdown has been incredibly hard for some and it can be hard to see...

At an unprecedented level our children are being encouraged online. We know things are easing in many countries but we can also see life will not go back to the way it was pre-lockdown. I have friends who despite schools being reopened are choosing to keep their childr...

Normal. I don't think such a state actually exists and if it does who defines it? One man's normal is another man's nightmare and that same nightmare is someone else's dream. We each have our own puzzle of a life to figure out, to fit and shape together as we feel to b...
