Inspired by a book or movie
Ever since I saw this movie, I have been captivated by the questions it asks each of us to answer. What would you do if a person brutally raped your child? If you were on the jury of a person who killed the person who brutally raped your child, would you find that person guilty of murder? If you were defending an unpopular person whom you thought deserved the right to a fair trial and popular opinion was placing your family in danger, would you persist? Would it make a difference if the perpetrator and victim were different races? Would it have changed your opinion of the lawyer in the movie if he’d have had an affair with the assistant? This poster has hung on the back of many doors in my life for as long as I have had it to remind me to think, to love mercy, but not forget justice. Right now it hangs on my bedroom door.
After a hard rain all day today, I went to a friend’s house to get something from her and I had to drive along this river. It struck me how brown it was. When I tell you it rained all day I mean it really rained. The hazy picture below was taken earlier that same day as my DH and I were driving in that rain.
Coffee or tea
We stopped off at our favorite delicatessen to get a sandwich and a cup of coffee before heading to our friend’s house. Little did I know that I would be able to get this great picture of 8-month-pregnant Gina, our waitress, trying to get the lid off the coffee pot to make us a fresh pot of coffee. What a great shot for coffee or tea! Thank you, Gina! At long last we got our errands done and headed home. Our ever-vigilant pup, Mick, was on his perch in the sunroom waiting for us to return. A picture of him at his “post” is the photo for linger for he would literally stay there for as long as it would take for us to return.
May your week be joyous, beautiful and full of surprises,
