Good morning! Good spring! I am thankful for the soft pink and green of spring, for new growth, for bird song and goslings, for ducklings and the fierce hummingbirds guarding territory….may you walk in beauty for a part of each day…..
Rainshadow Chorale sang the premiere of Gil Seeley’s Morning Rabbit at our concert last Friday and Saturday. I took this photograph two years ago at WSU in Pullman.
Good morning, rabbit!
For Wordless Wednesday.
Sunday was one of those amazing May sun days here. I couldn’t stand to stay inside. Boa Cat was out too. She did that cat thing where they stretch to twice their normal length and then played like a kitten.
“The flaming sky ball, how it heats the fur!”
I am looking for my post from last year for f and it looks like I skipped f! Oh, woe is me! I thought I had completed the A to Z Challenge!
F for faith. Faith is one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues: prudence, justice, temperance and fortitude, faith, hope and charity. This is a different list from one that was written later to match and oppose the Seven Sins: chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness and humility.
Both lists have charity and temperance in common, but the rest differ. Which list appeals to you most? If we combine them then we have 12 virtues.
I chose the 7 Sins last year as a theme to write about emotions. We don’t use the virtues as emotions as much. Who says “I am feeling diligent, temperant, just?”
And for faith, I walked two days ago. This tree was just starting to bud out: faith that spring will return, hope will return, justice will return, love will return, after the winter, after the war, after death and darkness and loss. Faith is spring and buds and flowers and the new green hope and joy.
