Wouldn’t you love to know?

Wouldn’t you love to know what her conversation is about? I received this image in an email this morning. Did you notice the date of the newspaper?

Looking Back

Looking Back, by artist unknown This papercut was intricately made from one sheet of paper. The detail is just amazing and the composition of the image is striking. I wish I knew the name of the artist. I photoshopped the original image to make it look a little more artsy. I wonder what the skeleton […]

I Pooted

For weeks, this one billboard only said, “I pooted.” We thought it was the oddest thing to put on a billboard. Child #1 had her suspicions. Sure enough, the other night we saw the rest of the sign. It is an advertisement for the Cartoon Network with the cartoon character Cheese from Foster’s Home for […]

For My Students

I found this image from this week’s list at PostSecret. I wish I had sent it in for my students. (But then again, I really don’t want it to be a secret.) This is for A., K., P., E., L., S., J., C., R., B., G., D., O., T., M., V., G., N., F., Y., […]

Ode to a Crow

For three gray days, this dead black bird laid next to the curb where I parked my car. I sat there after I turned off the engine each morning and stared at it for a long moment and wondered about life and death, sunshine and rain, heaven and hell, joy and sorrow. It is an […]

The Shadow of Death

The Shadow of Death, by William Holman Hunt, 1873 Lent ends with the Easter Triduum—Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter. The whole life of Jesus leads to the Cross. This painting reminds me of that in a poignant and real personal way that only art can sometimes do. Some items to take note in this painting (See a larger […]

Pi Cow

I wonder if she produces 3.14 liters of milk a day?

Keep Hope Alive

Fr. Scott always signs his letters and notes with “Keep Hope Alive”. It’s kind of like his motto. When I discovered this wonderful watercolor of a monarch butterfly called “Monarch Morning” by Roderick MacIver, I just had to scale and crop it down to fit on my cell phone screen. The caption on my cell […]

Boys, Rocks and Water

With it being such an exceptionally warm day for late December, and the grass fires a safe ten or so miles away, the three younger kids and I went to play in the park at a nearby lake. Afterwards, we drove around to our favorite point and went on a short hike next to the […]

Lifted Up

This painting speaks volumes to my heart right now. The painting by Carol E. Napoli is called “Lifted Up” and appears on the cover of How to Get the Most Out of the Eucharist. (Hat tip to Julie on the book.)

The Light Within Us

Yesterday evening, we were visiting the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial. A memory of someone special reminded me to take a picture of this sunset. My dad and his wife came in for Thanksgiving. We always seem to take visitors from out of town to the Memorial. As they walked around and as my kids went […]

Can I Get a Bird?

My oldest child, a senior at the high school where I teach, sent me an email this afternoon asking me if she could get a bird, this bird in particular: My first reaction was that the photo was a fake. But no, it is a real bird (although this one is a little more plump […]

Double Rainbow

A double rainbow in the early morning from about two weeks ago. And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the […]
