Thank God For Rain


Due to a severe drought in California the “Rain, rain, go away” song is now banned. “Rainbow” and “Double Rainbow” songs are accepted.

I shot this with an iPhone 5, using Hipstamatic app: Florence lens with BlacKeys XF film. 

The 2 Questions Of Life 

I was writing a lesson for elementary-aged children at my church and thought of Paul’s 2 questions he asked Jesus after Jesus interrupted his trip to Damscus. Paul asked, “Who are you?” and “What do you want me to do?” (Acts 9:5-6)

Aren’t those the two questions we all have to ask?

Dreaming of Greatness

After a morning of preying on birds and mice

She realized an extended nap would be nice

The wooden deck was as warm as it seemed

My cat didn’t waste time to fall asleep and dream

Of parading through the garden as would someone royal

Her friends and her rivals all bowed as they were loyal

She climbed up the fence and perched atop tall and proud

The queen of the yard stretched forward and roared aloud

I watched her as she dreamt of ruling the world

And didn’t have the heart to wake my furry little girl

She eventually woke up and continued her daily routine

Which included brief naps and dreams of being Queen.



When was the last time you played hopscotch?

When was the last time you hopped? On one foot? For fun? Not because you stubbed your toe navigating through the house in the middle of the night.

When was the last time you played a game that was actually on a board and not a handheld screen?

When was the last time you ran to beat someone to a finish line?

When was the last time you chased a ball?

When was the last time you rolled on the grass?

When was the last time you did anything like that?
