We Ought To Have a PIcture-a poem

CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith for the Years of Winter… ©

“We outa hab a pictu a dis.”
She could barely say the words
but she wanted a picture
We called her
The Phototerrorist
the one who could not feel
the world but through a lens
I take pictures now,
seeing the world
that way
The days are short and few
I want to feel each moment

John Robert McFarland

I started this blog several years ago, when we followed the grandchildren to the “place of winter,” Iron Mountain, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula [The UP]. I put that in the sub-title, Reflections on Faith from a Place of Winter for the Years of Winter, where life is defined by winter even in the summer! [This phrase is explained in the post for March 20, 2014.] The grandchildren, though, are grown up, so in May, 2015 we moved “home,” to Bloomington, IN, where we met and married. It’s not a “place of winter,” but we are still in winter years of the life cycle, so I am still trying to understand what it means to be a follower of Christ in winter…
