THE WOMAN WITH THE ROSE


John Blanchard stood up from the bench, straightened his Army uniform, and studied the crowd of people making their way through Grand Central Station. He looked for the girl whose heart he knew, but whose face he didn't, the girl with the rose. His interest in her had begun thirteen months before in a Florida library. Taking a book off the shelf he found himself intrigued, not with the words of the book, but with the notes penciled in the margin. The soft handwriting reflected a thoughtful soul and insightful mind. In the front of the book, he discovered the previous owner's name, Miss Hollis Maynell. With time and effort he located her address. She lived in New York City.

He wrote her a letter introducing himself and inviting her to correspond. The next day he was shipped overseas for service in World War II. During the next year and one month the two grew to know each other through the mail. Each letter was a seed falling on a fertile heart. A romance was budding.

Blanchard requested a photograph, but she refused. She felt that if he really cared, it wouldn't matter what she looked like. When the day finally came for him to return from Europe, they scheduled their first meeting - 7:00 PM at the Grand Central Station in New York. "You'll recognize me," she wrote, "by the red rose I'll be wearing on my lapel."

So at 7:00 he was in the station looking for a girl whose heart he loved, but whose face he'd never seen. I'll let Mr. Blanchard tell you what happened:

A young woman was coming toward me, her figure long and slim. Her blonde hair lay back in curls from her delicate ears; her eyes were blue as flowers. Her lips and chin had a gentle firmness, and in her pale green suit she was like springtime come alive. I started toward her, entirely forgetting to notice that she was not wearing a rose. As I moved, a small, provocative smile curved her lips. "Going my way, sailor?" she murmured. Almost uncontrollably I made one step closer to her, and then I saw Hollis Maynell. She was standing almost directly behind the girl.

A woman well past 40, she had graying hair tucked under a worn hat.. She was more than plump, her thick-ankled feet thrust into low-heeled shoes. The girl in the green suit was walking quickly away. I felt as though I was split in two, so keen was my desire to follow her, and yet so deep was my longing for the woman whose spirit had truly companioned me and upheld my own. And there she stood. Her pale, plump face was gentle and sensible, her gray eyes had a warm and kindly twinkle. I did not hesitate. My fingers gripped the small worn blue leather copy of the book that was to identify me to her. This would not be love, but it would be something precious, something perhaps even better than love, a friendship for which I had been and must ever be grateful. I squared my shoulders and saluted and held out the book to the woman, even though while I spoke I felt choked by the bitterness of my disappointment. "I'm Lieutenant John Blanchard, and you must be Miss Maynell. I am so glad you could meet me; may I take you to dinner?"

The woman's face broadened into a tolerant smile. "I don't know what this is about, son," she answered, "but the young lady in the green suit who just went by, she begged me to wear this rose on my coat. And she said if you were to ask me out to dinner, I should go and tell you that she is waiting for you in the big restaurant across the street. She said it was some kind of test!"

It's not difficult to understand and admire Miss Maynell's wisdom. The true nature of a heart is seen in its response to the unattractive. "Tell me whom you love," Houssaye wrote, "And I will tell you who you are.

Making Music

February 5, 2012

On a lovely summer evening, a capacity crowd gathered in a beautiful outdoor venue for a concert by one of my college friends. It happened to be his birthday, so the emcee hinted that we might want to sing “Happy Birthday” to him. One by one, people started singing, each in a different key, each at a different tempo. As the jumble of notes and words joined together, the result was, well, less than harmonic. It wasn’t even melodious. It was in fact downright pitiful. When my friend took the stage, he gave us another chance. He didn’t give us the pitch, but he did give us a downbeat, so at least we were singing together. By the end of the song most people were somewhat close to the same key.

The noise that was supposed to be a song reminded me of a problem in a first-century church. They couldn’t agree on their leader. Some followed Paul; others Apollos (1 Cor. 3:4). The result was conflict and division (v.3). Instead of music, they were making noise. When people don’t agree on a leader, they all “sing” (I’m speaking metaphorically here) at the pace and pitch most comfortable for them.

To make beautiful music that will attract unbelievers to Jesus, all believers must follow the same leader, and that leader must be Christ.

Lord, give us wisdom. We know it’s good to follow
the example of our godly leaders, but help us not to
think so highly of them that we worship them
instead of You. Amen.

Keeping in tune with Christ keeps harmony in the church.

Read: 1 Corinthians 3:1-17

Be filled with the Spirit, . . . singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. —Ephesians 5:18-19
Bible in a year:
Numbers 1-3

Feeling puny after the latest round - hope to get some results when I see the pulmonologist next Thursday.

I'll be singing in the choir tomorrow - my voice is in horrible shape, but it's my daughter's last Sunday with the choir before her six-month mission to Kenya. She leaves Friday evening from Dulles.

Her Mother and I are truly proud of the work she has undertaken but are fearful for her safety in that part of the world. I'm working on a prayer thread for her that will be posted soon.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

Thanks very much, Kathy.

My daughter joined our adult Chancel Choir when she was in 7th Grade. By then she had already sung for a season with the county's Middle School Honors Chorus. She has a lovely soprano voice and is well-loved by our fellow choristers. She has sung with the choir since 2001, except for the four years she was away at school. She returned this season and it's as though she never left.

I have sung with our choir for over a decade and before that cantored for many years at the 7:30 a.m. Latin Mass at our parish. It has meant a lot to me to have Mary singing with us, and with me, in this choir. We all look forward to her return next September for the new season.

Good evening, teen. *HUGS*

Lots of snow. The roof shovelers came. Made HUGE piles on the ground. I am so glad they didn’t come as scheduled yesterday. I was almost done shoveling the area I need to get out of the garage when they came. Because of the snow they dumped on the deck and beside the garage, they cleaned those areas. Sweet deal as both places were pretty deep before they got here. In the meantime, my folks canceled their appointments. Our street is done to one lane, and really deep. Cul-de-sacs are last on the list for plowing. They really need a city blower in here to blow the snow up further in folks yards. We are going to have snow all summer. LOL!

Hope you had a good day, with not too many yuckies?

I don't know how you deal with all that snow! Shoveling it can really be a hazard to your health! I'd say canceling any appointments would be a must!

We were excited when a snowman lasted 3 days here. Yours would most likely last until...well...June!

Day wasn't bad at all...only minor yuckies! :) Thanks for asking!

This is the most snow I’ve had to deal with...we’ve never had so much on the lawn. And I don’t remember ever having the pile of snow in the middle stay there so long. There has been so much snow this year that the snow dumps are full...so...the pile takes up almost the whole cul-de-sac, with just barely a truck’s width driving room around it. Any emergency vehicle is gonna have a rough time.

Glad the yuckies were minor.

I’ve seriously been thinking about calling the snow removal folks and letting them know I understand that they can’t remove the pile, but could they use a loader and move the outside snow higher into the middle, make the pile higher instead of so spread out.
