Rogue

a rogue tongue

not so fun..

being mean

what’s going on?

in you brain

and your heart

we are not all

the same..

we do all have

a beating heart

blood that runs

through our veins..

yours is not more precious

than mine

or any others..

as God is our maker

we were created by

his design..

and it was his plan

for all of us

to be kind..

1 Corinthians 13:1

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth..

round and round

the world we go

losing sight of what we know

spinning fast

out of control

delving in darkness

that masters the soul…

Lord, help us

help us quick

free us from what

makes us sick..

love will turn this world around

compassion and kindness

can make us sound…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Under My Feet

We got out yesterday to do some more exploring. Mr. G. is feeling a bit perkier after three shoulder surgeries and being somewhat confined in his activities. The challenge for this week is Beneath Your Feet, or however you choose to interpret. We discovered an area not far from where we live, called Cascadia, where the So. Santiam River flows. We hiked to the Soda Creek waterfall. The water level was low but it still made for good photo opportunities.

Why, Why, Why?

Today our world is all abuzz with questions…The why’s of many unanswered questions.

DSC_0025-003The sunflowers are looking more ragged each day, but the little birds of a feather don’t care. They are getting fed.

DSC_0032-002Look at the two little faces on the left. They appear to be looking at me. I wonder what they are thinking?

DSC_0052Despite the wind, they were busy chomping away.

Sunflower Pandemoniun

DSCN8393I am changing things up here. With much enthusiasm I planted Sunflower seeds, and Sunflowers are what I got. Tall towering ones. I call this post Pandemonium.

The bees are feasting and loving life right now.

Majestic beauties, you have enriched my days..

It is a serious thing

just to be alive

on this fresh morning

in this broken world..
