they are around
some so silent
and don’t make a sound
strength comes in numbers
together we are strong
but the enemy
wants to take us
Dear ones, Thank you from the bottom of my splintered heart. Your prayers are appreciated and the cries of our heart are heard in the heavenlies. I am a witness to the fact that He carries me, and all that concerns me.
There was a search done today and there is not a trace to be seen or found at this time. If only Jadey’s dog could talk. I know they are missing their human mom.. She’s had them since they were puppies. My love and gratitude, for your warm expressions of concern..
When did life get so serious?
Yesterday afternoon, I began to think about laughter. I realized that I have not had a good hearty dose of it lately. I laugh at myself often, but it is not one of those deep belly laughs, that might almost bring moisture to my eyes. As I pondered on this, I thought about the comedians of this generation. I admit, I am old school and that happens when you are born in the fifties. Maybe not for all.. Because of this thinking, I ran through a list of those that made me chuckle from past years. Some would be considered corny, in this day and age. At this moment, I am thinking about Carol Burnett and her sidekick, Vicki Lawrence. I don’t find humor in much of what is promoted these days. Sigh…

Red Ridge Farm, is a delightful place to visit. Since the sun was bright, we made a point of getting out to enjoy the sunshine.
Besides wine tasting, there is a small but charming nursery and a gift shop, with tasty looking treats, books and all of those fun things, that we women like to look at.
For the past few days, the leaves have loosened their grip somewhat, due to the wind, causing them to dance and flaunt their beauty. The leaves on these trees are pretty much intact. Another week of color fun, here in the Willamette Valley. I will hop over to Dawn Miller’s to see what she and other color hunter’s have found.
sky so blue
with an open heart
and eyes to see
i thank the good Lord..
for what he has done
for you and me..
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Even though we had been to this state park previously, I think two times, we hadn’t really explored the area. Champoeg State Park, is about twelve miles from where we live. We brought our lunch and I looked forward to what we would discover.
I am posting for Festival of Leaves, with hostess Dawn Miller, who gladly is carrying on this seasonal challenge. This will be a teaser post, because what I discovered beyond this point was very special. So I will leave you with a bit of anticipation, of what I saw and captured, until next time.
