See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Friday fast.

"My heart is won more readily through your wretchedness than through your virtues! Who came away from the Temple justified? The publican. For to me the sight of a humble contrite soul is irresistible... That is the way I am." - Jesus to Sr. Consolata Betrone

  1. There is such an inherent beauty and Grace to the wayside chapel---
    it can be encountered by accident while travelling or encountered by choice on a known road between two points.

  2. I love these roadside chapels. Sometimes they are out in the middle of no where. Maybe some day I'll build one at the cabin. (When I say "I'll", I actually mean, "I'll get hubby to do it" :)
