if God made today

then I can find joy in it

gladness with the sunrise

This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Man’s Best Friend

Our tenacious terrier mix, Sami. B- 2007 D- 12/30/21

She was just a stray.

But her spirit stole our hearts.

Good bye, Sami Jo.

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

a crowd of humans

swimming by like hooked mouth fish

who will reel them in?

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

Jesus, Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)

warming at the fire

encircled by the darkness

faces in the flames

For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

rising harvest moon

silhouettes the hungry hawk

tomorrow, the hunt

But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently

Had you heard about the fall?

So little. So much!

A working man may or may not have enough to eat, but at least he can get a good night’s sleep. A rich man, however, has so much that he stays awake worrying.

Ecclesiastes 5:12 (GNT)
