Share Your Cup - This Week
The mug was a gift from a friend many years ago for she knew sunflowers were my favorite flowers. It is a Canadian Design by Valerie Pfeiffer - Sunflowers.
This a collection of short stories of very interesting characters who all live on in the 30 or so houses on Chestnut Street.
Fay's New Uncle is one which I enjoyed. She did not know him until he needed her to be released from the hospital. He was elderly, quiet and kept to himself. The hospital staff tracked her down and suggested she visit him there. He seems nice enough but the rub is he can not be released from hospital unless someone agrees to care for him.
She visits the house on Chestnut Street, it is clean and tidy and well kept. She agrees to help the old guy out. It will need renovations to allow him to live on the main floor. The guy has funds so that proceeds. Now a tenant on the upper floor would be ideal. Well what about her and her room mate. Yes, that will work. The arrangement made was they would cook Sunday supper for him every week. Soon, he is visiting his neighbours, making friends and is all around much happier. I would recommend this one.
That year as well when the author P.W. Young was on his book tour a bunch of us went out to dinner and went to see him talk about the book.
The movie was terrific. I love God portrayed as a black woman. Jesus as a dark skinned, plaid shirt wearing carpenter and the spirit as a creative Asian woman.
The power of forgiveness has to redeem our souls. Totally enjoyed it.
Another glass lemon. Eventually, I am hoping to have a bowl full of glass lemons and now I have two.
This is very good!
