Blue Heron

I was so excited last week when we passed this Blue Heron in the fountain pond of a housing development.





“God created the huge whales, all the swarm of life in the waters, And every kind and species of flying birds. God saw that it was good.

Two Birthdays!

This month, both Phil and Dara's birthdays are only three days apart. So we had a double celebration! Here is Dara opening a present. It was Mermaid Barbie.


Our kitty came over to check the wrapping.

Anne Marie scooped him up. She loves animals so much that she is a vegetarian.

Here are the birthday boy and girl. I got two tiny cakes because  the girls like chocolate and the boys don't.

Little Jazz is always the comedian of the family.

Here we all are! Minus one who was taking the picture. And yes, our son is crossing his eyes in the header!! Boys will be boys, even when they are middle aged.

“One-hundredth birthdays will be considered normal— anything less will seem like a cheat.”

Star Gazing

The Stargazer lilies are blooming now. I just found them today!





See the spots toward the center of this flower? They aren't just spots, they actually stick up!



“The skies were made by God’s command; he breathed the word and the stars popped out.” 

Psalm 33

All Creatures Great & Small

Willeys is our local soft serve ice-cream stand. They know that dogs love ice-cream. So they sell a bowl of ice-cream with a dog biscuit in it. Lots of people bring their dogs along with them. Here are a few enjoying their ice-cream on a hot day. This one got served even before his masters did!




Even the little birds don't get left out. They fly down and eat the spilled sprinkles off the pavement.


“The whole congregation of believers was united as one—one heart, one mind! They didn’t even claim ownership of their own possessions. No one said, “That’s mine; you can’t have it.” They shared everything.

Acts 4
