    Melodye, I think this is my favorite yet. No, we never outgrow what we were taught in VBS and Sunday School, well for me, I haven’t forgotten. Very poignant post.

      You, too? Gospel hymns and choruses…they’re on constant replay in my head. And the Bible stories still come to mind, same as ever. 🙂

    Melodye, this is wonderful and insightful as well. And the photography is outstanding, especially the hummingbird.
    These are tumultuous times and I do believe its going to get much worse before it ever starts to get better. We are regressing back to the days of the old west, where everyone carried guns and if you did not like someone or argued with someone, you shot them dead. This is where we are and this is the 21st century.
    People hear take guns away and right away they feel their second amendment rights are being violated and that is not the case. People need to understand that other than military, or police, NO ONE , not hunters, not skeet shooters, not target shooters, needs an AK-47 or any other assault weapon. People do not like to be told they cannot have something. I will save this discussion for another day. This is a great blog, Melodye. Love your writing.

  3. Beautiful blog! First of all, yes, there are songs and passages that stick with me still from my early years attending a Methodist Church. “Be Still My Soul.” “Let Us Break Bread Together.” And the story of the Prodigal Son. Beautiful songs. A beautiful lesson. I also know the sting of sharing something deep and personally meaningful and having it challenged or dismissed. Bottom line….the getting quiet serves so many functions in life. The more we are quiet the more we can see, hear, learn, understand. The more we see, hear, learn, and understand, the more likely we are to start healing what ails us.

  4. Interesting musings, Melodye. As always, I enjoy your prose and photographs. I do think the Scriptures and songs we learned as children stick with us. I can remember the lyrics to Hebrew songs…and that’s a story for another time.
