    These two quotes crossed my path today.

    A person is a kind of sacrament: something made of molecules by which we become aware of something else which is not made of molecules.
    Sydney Carter

    Christianity is art and not money. — William Blake

    Here is where they took me.

    paint me a picture

    bread and wine
    paint and brushes
    turn of a phrase
    song of the heart
    dancing eyes
    sunlight smile
    trail of tears
    statue of limitations
    body of work
    work of art
    harbinger of hope
    act of faith



    Blogging since December 2005

      I hate to be a party-pooper, but the phrase is “statute of limitations.” Cheers.

        I intended the play on words, Tom, since I was talking about art

      Hi, Milton – A friend from church, O.R. Schmidt, put me onto your book awhile back and then your blogs. I have enjoyed all very much and am especially enjoying your Lenten pieces. I meant to respond a couple of days ago to the one on songs. I was wondering if you have heard any by Peter Mayer. I especially like his “Holy Now” and think you would also. Check it out. Looking forward to those pie recipes!

        Thanks, Martha.

        I do know Peter Mayer, though not that particular record. I’ll check it out. And please give my regards to O. R.
