Monday, June 10, 2013 -- Week of Proper 5, Year One
Ephrem of Edessa, Deacon, 373

[Note:  I'll be suspending writing Morning Reflections in the near future.  I've been doing these for almost ten years, and it's time for a break.  It seems that this early-morning time of writing is also the time when my 2-year old granddaughter most needs my attention.  I need to take up that wonderful opportunity.  As soon as the Speaking to the Soul blog on Episcopal Cafe finds my replacement, I'll suspend the Morning Reflections emails, podcast and blog.]

Gilbert Keith Chesterton, Apologist and Writer, 1936

[Note:  I'll be suspending writing Morning Reflections at the end of this week.  I've been doing these for almost ten years, and it's time for a break.  It seems that this early-morning time of writing is also the time when my 2-year old granddaughter most needs my attention.  I need to take up that wonderful opportunity.  Tomorrow will be my final posting, at least for the time being.  I'm delighted that my associate the Rev. Dr. Lora Walsh will begin posting Morning Reflections on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, which will be picked up on the Speaking to the Soul blog on Episcopal Cafe as well.  All but the first few years of my posts will remain archived on my blog -- lowellsblog.blogspot.com.]
