An unexpected gift

Corpus Christi is a Catholic feast that celebrates the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Christ, as the centre and summit of our Christian lives.  A friend surprised me with this gift.  A figurine that she found in a garage sale.  The trash of someone is a treasure for another, indeed!

The Little Mermaid

There is a legend that mermaids live only for three hundred years and then they turn into a sea foam.  The Little Mermaid of Copenhagen was sitting on her rock since 1913.  She has a long time to live…but who knows, the mermaid’s wish to live for all eternity might still be granted to her.
