We arrived home from Paris last night after 10 wonderful days. Constantly surrounded by beauty, sometimes so amazing that it literally took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes.
And I will share some of that beauty with you, just not today.
While we were in France we made a special trip to Notre Dame. It was with mixed emotions that we visited this beautiful cathedral once again, it was on my birthday and during the celebration of the Immaculate Conception.
As the organ played, and the procession began with angelic voices filling the church for the service, we were reminded of those we had come there to honor. We lit a candle for dear friends, those who are suffering from cancer and those who have been healed. And we were also there for one special friend who lost his 10 year battle with cancer just days before. The 8th was the day of his funeral back in Indiana where my husband is from, and standing there in the cathedral helped us feel connected even though we were so far away.
