Thankful Thursday

  I ran a stop sign the other day, I did. It wasn’t a slow roll through. Nope, I ran it at about 60 mph. Not good. I nearly collided with a car whose driver sounded the horn loud and clear. Rightly so. Wow. There was grace that totally abounded. Totally. For me. Grace abounded for the driver  in the car who sounded the horn, for the passengers. I didn’t get a ticket, but I so should have. It didn’tRead more

a few thoughts on reflections…

I love to see reflections in the water. Sometimes, the reflection is so true to form, and looks so much like what is being reflected. Other times, it looks so different.

Sunday Stills ~ ‘Cold as Ice’

“Quiet waters?”  Not really. The rushing of the water and the wind through the trees weren’t what I’d call quiet.  But I felt as though the refreshment that came from our time at the stream’s edge in the mountains was right out of the Psalms.  Thankful for time well spent. “He leads me beside quiet waters.  He restores my soul.” Psalm 23:2b https://sundaystills.wordpress.com/2015/01/11/sunday-stills-the-next-challenge-cold-as-ice/Read more
