A Pause to Remember

This afternoon at 4:00 p.m. in New York City, there will be a public memorial service to remember and celebrate the life of Madeleine L'Engle. She would have been 89 years old tomorrow.

Pause sometime today to give thanks for her life and to pray for the family, friends and admirers gathered in New York today to mourn and celebrate. Or spend a few minutes, if you can, reading one of Madeleine's poems or a favorite passage from one of her novels or journals! My advent reading this year is Wintersong (Christmas writings by Madeleine and her good friend Luci Shaw). I hope to spend a few minutes with it this afternoon around 4.

Just got home now; I will definitely do some Madeleine L'Engle reading tonight!

Thanks, Erin. :-) Just feels so very appropriate!

I enjoyed spending a few minutes with *Wintersong* this afternoon. It's a lovely collection...
