Happy Thoughts...

"Fill your mind with the thought that God is there. And once your mind 
is truly filled with that thought, 
when you experience difficulties 
it will be as easy as breathing 
for you to remember, 
'My heavenly Father knows all about this!'... 
you can rest in perfect confidence in Him."

Good night.
Be well.

Surprise Over the Hill

This morning while the three of us were out walking just below the gate area, we were chatting away and looking toward the road where it drops on down the hill. If I would have had my iPhone out of my pocket I would have snapped a photo of our morning surprise.

Just as this road crests there was a young buck coming towards us. He stood there as transfixed as we all were. I looked at both Sherwin and Seth's faces for reaction and it was sheer delight for all of us.

Of course he was off and running before I could capture him but seconds later he popped up over the edge of the road right in front of us. He was as curious about us as we were about him.

We stood still, I talked to him softly while I got my phone ready to shoot him. He stood there and stared at us for at least 10-15 seconds. He was magnificent.

Then he turned as was gone.

I am always so thankful for these brief moments I get with the wildlife around here. We have had close encounters with a few different species this summer already and it has been so thrilling.

Hope your week has some surprises (good ones) too.

Above all, be well.

The Lord is My Shepherd

"The King of Love my Shepherd is,
Whose goodness faileth never;
I nothing lack if I am His, 
And He is mine forever.

Where streams of living water flow
My ransomed soul He leadeth,
And where the verdant pastures grow,
With food celestial feedeth.

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed,
But yet in love He sought me,
And on His shoulders gently laid,
And home, rejoicing, brought me.

And so through all the length of days
Thy goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd! I would sing Thy praise
Within Thy house forever."

Wishing you all a lovely Sabbath.
Be well.
