Life goes on: I have chosen to share with you on this very windy day, when I must remember that wind is about spirit, some photos taken yesterday of Muenster Church. It had been called St. Peter's Cathedral until recent years. The church is situated about 10 km. from Humboldt, so is very near. The paintings of Berthold Imhoff were created in the cathedral in 1919. They have been restored a number of times since then. For more pictures of the cathedral visit this set.

Fathers remembered - the reason I said life goes on, is that yesterday brought the death of a third young father in our community within the past nine months. These fathers ranged in age from 34 years - 41 years. Two died of heart attacks. The other, an RCMP officer, died yesterday in a motor vehicle accident while returning home from his new detachment in northern Saskatchewan. I do not much feel like working with my journal quilt while my heart is aching, my soul is grieving.

Angels be with you.

My Goodness, Wendy. The photo's are incredible, that's one amazing building! I love the pictures from the choir stall - you must feel like you're amongst the Angels up there! Wonderful...
Sweetheart, it does seem cruel to have lost 3 young lives in such a short time, but maybe you could take the opportunity to celebrate your own life, and life itself. I know I felt so fortunate to be celebrating my birthday last week - I have known too many people who didn't even make it to the age I am now. Life is so short, and so sweet. We must celebrate it, and pray for the souls of those we have lost. I love you dearly and am sending Angels to comfort & protect you...
Huge Hugs,
Suze xXx

Lovely photos. So glad you are able to go to such a lovely place to find comfort. I'm so sorry that you have had so much sorrow in your town and that I have not been around much. xoxo, Fran
