Advent: Hope

HOPE

taken and shared by my friend Linda.

 

First Sunday of Advent

Reading 1 Jer 33:14-16

The days are coming, says the LORD,
when I will fulfill the promise
I made to the house of Israel and Judah.
In those days, in that time,
I will raise up for David a just shoot ;
he shall do what is right and just in the land.
In those days Judah shall be safe
and Jerusalem shall dwell secure;
this is what they shall call her:
“The LORD our justice.”
Amen.
( the video that is connected to the word hope above contains photography from Jim Crotty and music from Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma)

How timely to find this old post from the fall of 2011. Two years ago, is just a few winks of time for my friend (the mom of this girl) and I. For her though, much growing and changing has happened in the two and 1/2 years that have passed since I asked her if I could use her sweet photo.

Attendance Please

She is clothed in strength and dignity,

she can laugh at the days to come.

Psalm 31: 25

Like it or Not, You are Joining me on the April A-Z Challenge

You know, at first when I started seeing contests and challenges for writers, especially blogging, I phsawed them. Over my shoulder I mumbled, “too old and famous thank you very much.”

Then, I noticed that I was in my monkey sparkle pajamas and alone in my office. Good reason to reconsider!

So – I signed up for the April A-Z Blogging 2012 Challenge because I liked the graphics of their web page. Check the page out here if you like.

I didn’t really pay attention to what I was agreeing to, and here we are: April has clearly sprung!

I mentioned on Thursday that my IRL (“in real life”) calendar has suddenly morphed, so here is how I’m looking at this experiment.

I’d like this to be more of a photo blog and I’m drawn to the idea of using the sign language alphabet. My thought, for now, is to post two photos for each letter: what each letter looks like to the speaker (the person doing the signing) and what it looks like to the listener (the person doing the listening/watching).

Back in one of my days, I was a sign language interpreter, and this will be a fun challenge to give a coffee boost to that part of my past.

Here Goes!
