I decided to start zinnias from seed this year. Yesterday, I transplanted them. I was amazed at the length of their little roots! They had sent them down as far as their shallow soil would allow them to go and then made a sharp right and started crawling along the bottom of the tray! So, … More My Poor Little Zinnias!
As I sit here watching two male Rose Breasted Grosbeaks having breakfast at my feeder, I see a wonderful lesson for believers, actually several! 🙂 It’s a droopy rainy day, and they’re both hunkered down under the little overhang on the feeder. We come to God’s Word to be nourished and find shelter there from … More For the Birds (and me too!)
Does it get any better than this: sitting here in my living room, looking out the triple pane window and watching the finches and various other birds come swooping into the feeder as I have my devotions? The sun is shining, the trees are budding, and my cuckoo clock is happily ticking. Now, if you … More Cuckoo Heaven
Ready, Set, Wait! Well, the last job is done for the winter—tilling the garden. Dear old Tilly is out there now, purring away until the gas is gone. A good wash and she gets to rest for the season. The garden is ready, but for what? It’s ready to rest; however, any seeds that are … More Ready, Set, Wait
He may not leap from the tallest buildings or wear spandex and a cape, but he is MY superhero! He spends his days battling enemies on every front, from without and within, and never complains. At times, I believe if I could see them, I’d see a whole host of demonic beasties flapping and snarling … More My superhero
“The iconic twin towers of downtown Manhattan’s World Trade Center were a triumph of human imagination and will. Completed in 1973, the towers stood at 110 stories each, accommodating 50,000 workers and 200,000 daily visitors in 10 million square feet of space. They were the hub of the bustling Financial District, a top tourist attraction … More Do We Remember?
Well, for the first time ever, we have grown cantaloupes—just had one tonight for dessert, and it was delicious! I’ve tried before, but they never completely ripened before our sunshine and warm weather gave way to fall. I love living on top of a mountain, but it cuts our growing season by two weeks. So, … More Success!
The end is near! There’s a meteor ready to crash into the earth and kill us all! The economy is collapsing in October! Last night’s Supermoon/Blood Moon must mean something bad! It’s so sad that this world is so paranoid. It seems like there’s always someone heralding the end of the world. Just this weekend … More The Promise of another 1,007 years
It’s pretty hard to sit at the beach and not notice people. It’s probably the only time when I wish I had my husband’s bad eyesight. He takes off his glasses and only sees blurred images. For the most part, I avert my eyes. (This is also the reason we head for the ocean in … More Beach Bodies
“What a nice group of people.” The comment was made several times, and I had to agree. Of course, they were all my relatives! Two aunts, three cousins and spouses, my dear mother (in whose honor the hot dog roast was organized), my sister and her husband, two of our children and their families, and … More The top of the “Spirit-chain”
