All a Kind of Praise

A brisk but glorious morning, with bright sunshine, trees greening, redbuds and dogwoods blossoming. I spent a good hour and a half early today slowly traversing a gravel country road in Fauquier County, Virginia, east of the Blue Ridge, with a farm and a lovely creek nearby, and a bald eagle flying over head at one point. All a kind of praise.

Easter Day 2010

Karen and I participated in an Easter sunrise service (6:30 a.m.) at The Falls Church (Anglican), in the churchyard. Worship started in near dark among the graves; the sun ascended the horizon about midway through; by the end, as we ate and drank in Eucharist, the emerging leaves of the tall oak above us took on green in the light. In all, a splendid sacrament of life from death!
