Part VII Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

What Alice finds outside the March Hare’s house under a tree are the March Hare, the Mad Hatter and the Door Mouse all sitting at the corner of a large table having tea. When they see Alice approaching they cry out that there was no room, no room! Because there are only three at thisContinue reading “Part VII Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”

Part VI Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

At the end of Alice’s last adventure, she has arrived at a house but doesn’t know whose it is. Now in this adventure she sees a fish livery footman arriving at the door and a frog footman answering the door. Their discourse gives an indication as to whom the house belongs to as the fishContinue reading “Part VI Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”

Clothing vs Clothing

Most of us spend a considerable amount of time, money and attention on our clothes. But there are some clothes we may not have thought much about. Several years ago, I met Ruth Catalano, a teacher, prophet, and missionary to the American Indians, Sallisaw,Oklahoma. ‘Sister Ruth’ while visiting in Virginia and NC spoke on IIContinue reading “Clothing vs Clothing”

Part V Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

What Alice finds on top of the mushroom was a blue caterpillar who appears to be very comfortable with who he is and whose questions make Alice feel very uncertain as to who she is. His penetrating question, ‘Who are you?’ is one she can’t quite answer. She has changed sizes so many times sinceContinue reading “Part V Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”

Part IV Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

The footsteps that Alice heard pattering were not those of the mouse. Rather, they belonged to the White Rabbit who was muttering to himself about the Duchess executing him for he could not find his fan and gloves. When he sees Alice he calls her MaryAnn and commands her to go home at once andContinue reading “Part IV Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”

Part III Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

If you recall, we ended Alice’s last adventure with the birds and animals and Alice swimming from her pool of tears to shore. What a bedraggled, ‘queer-looking party’ stood on shore. (My! but our lack of self-control can have serious repercussions on so many others besides our self.) Thankfully,Mouse had a plan though on howContinue reading “Part III Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”

Part II Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

We left off in our last Wonderland Adventure with Alice having shrunk small enough to get through the door that leads to the beautiful garden, but having left the door key on the table. Failing in her attempt to climb up the table, she decides to eat a little cake left in a box underContinue reading “Part II Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

For Christmas I received a ‘listening library’ of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from Jon M. I found it interesting on reading the cover of it that the author, Lewis Carroll was such a diverse person, a mathematician, photographer and clergyman. At Sara’s suggestion, I would like to share some observations and thoughts as I enjoyContinue reading “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”

Making a Christmas Centerpiece

Everyone will enjoy a fresh Christmas centerpiece adorning your table and I would like to explain how to make one. Depending on where you live, you can purchase or cut from your yard evergreens such as pine, fir, cypress, cedar, boxwood or northern bayberry (myrtle). Evergreens symbolize the promise of Eternal Life which Jesus givesContinue reading “Making a Christmas Centerpiece”

Making a Fresh Advent Wreath

One way we symbolically anticipate the birth and soon coming return of Christ is with an advent wreath. The wreath shows us that God is eternal. Jesus said He was the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. The greens are everlasting, like the love of Christ who dies for all. And eachContinue reading “Making a Fresh Advent Wreath”
