Thank you, Vinita, for always challenginge me and making me think...

The "if only's" plague us all. Thank you for being transparent today. I am having a "if only" day too... I love your last line to "trust the mercy" Bless you

I haven't met you, but I have read your books, Vinita, and glimpsed your heart through your blogs. I think you are beautiful. I think your education in your early fifties is inspiring. I think you probably have gifts that are a balm to those around you. I have recommended your books to everyone who will listen, and given copies to friends, because I found in them some treasures I hadn't found in any other books. You are very cool, your writing gift is breathtaking, and your beauty is quite apparent. Perhaps not in the dime-a-dozen Hollywood way, but in the counts-for-something way. Your transparency encourages me. I wanted to reach out and send love and encouragement to you today.

Youre so kind, Julie. Thank you. You gave my soul a lift, truly.

i see you and i hear you...and i am touched by your willingness to be vulnerable and open...you are an instrument of God's peace in my life; by way of your gifts, talents, and simply by being you. love you always and forever.

Marcia, you always know the perfect thing to say! Grace and peace, love always--V

You're a mind reader! If-only thinking has such a corrosive effect on my life. If only I married the other guy instead of him I'd be happier. I'm mad at myself for making such poor decisions. I have only me to blame for the predicament I'm in. "All I can do, dear lovely God, creative God, compassionate God, is trust the Mercy."

      This is my husband's site. As a professional photographer he's done all kinds of work, but I really enjoy the images he's capturing these days. Order cards or prints from him.

    • PBS Masterpiece series Cranford
      This is my new (well, new to me) favorite miniseries. Lovely, funny, heartbreaking. Made to go with a pot of strong tea and hankies with lace.
    • Rambling Rose
      I don't think there was much buzz about this 1991 movie, but I like it so much I own a copy. There's so much grace in this story, and Diane Ladd delivers one of my favorite movie speeches of all time, toward the end of the film (she and Robert Duvall, her husband, are in the doctor's office).
    • Mystical Hope: Trusting in the Mercy of God
      This is a short, readable, and powerful book. I'm on my way to read Bourgeault's other works. This one encouraged me and gave me a boost of desire for that quiet place with God.
