Julie, sending you rainbows...

Updated: Mar 25


Sending you color-filled greetings from the sidewalks of West Hempstead...

I was just out walking around town and heard some children talking in the distance. One of them mentioned "rainbow." I crossed over to their side of the street and came upon a bunch of youngsters expressing their artistic talents on their driveway. And, there was not one but several rainbows and ice cream cones. But the cherry on top...was your name - JULIA - among these beautiful and tasty images.

I asked them if I could take a few pictures to send to my sister in Charlotte who wasn't feeling well. As I was leaving, the oldest girl asked me to let them know how you liked them. I admire her compassion.

A nearby house displayed this shrine of Mary. The family frequently changes the arrangement. I'm including this because of your middle name...

This and the rainbows reminded me of the description of Mary as

"a woman clothed with the sun..."

Sunlight contains all the colors of the rainbow. Applying this to Mary, I found these:
