Pretty pictures, but I guarantee that they were all the more captivating in person. I thought of this today as I saw the golden sunset shining on the tops of our pine trees- first in a reflection from a glass table top, then I turned my head upward to the real thing. The latter put the former to shame.
Made me think of this verse-
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

Same place, this morning, zoomed in a bit...

I cropped it, but didn't make any other changes. To often we don't take the time to enjoy the beauty around us. It's interesting to watch the changing season, and weather patterns, reflected in the sky.

I agree. I like seeing the frost on tree limbs.

The snow is not packing well, so I am using the snow blower and making circles around it to pile up the snow and letting it pack down a bit. I suspect I will have it finished right when spring hits and it melts.


How did your igloo turn out, Robert?

I thought of you when I saw this story. My thought: how are they going to get their cars out of the garage??

I think I am funnier than I really am.
Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they are not after you.

Try this for a week...

  • Do more than exist: live
  • Do more than touch: feel
  • Do more than look: observe
  • Do more than read: absorb
  • Do more than hear: listen
  • Do more than listen: understand
  • Do more than think: reflect
  • Do more than talk: say something

Got to watch a pair of swans swimming in the river past the property with my wife. :D

Received a surprise in the mail: Beside the Still Waters devotional. I think someone must of signed us up for a free one? I really like how this looks! :D Has a daily devotional and a daily bible reading schedule with each day.

Watched with my eldest son a goose climb up on an iceberg floating down the river and ride it along... 8-) :lol:

Now just about time to go and eat the one I cooked today. :P

I don't always read Beside the Still Waters like my wife does, but they are quite good.

Actually got to be in a township here in Cape Town; what used to be called shantytown. A former inmate came to the gate asking for help, saying that his "house" had burned, and he took my brother and me to see it. The spot was deep, deep into the township, and I didn't think the car could make it into the various passageways, but it did. The young man, Cecil, warned us not to get out of our car, because it wasn't safe (for whites), which we knew already. Anyway, he and his girlfriend came back to the house for clothes, Christian literature, a little money, and household items (they had already eaten lunch with us), and the government will provide more corrugated sheets for rebuilding.

Later, some of us were walking beside the vlei/body of salt water, handing out tracts. One teen took it and walked ahead of us, reading it as he went. After a while, he turned around to thank my brother. Upon being questioned as to his spiritual state, he volunteered that his "life doesn't reflect salvation", and he mentioned several sins. When told that if he didn't repent, the Bible says hell awaits, he asked for prayer and then addressed the Lord himself, wanting forgiveness. Encouraging response to a tract.
