Hide & Seek

“He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; he’s near.” 
                                                             Acts 17

Hands Down

This is what I saw when we walked into our local Subway last week. The Diabetes Hands foundation is raising money. See the blood drop on the finger from testing? I believe you donate, then you can write your name on a hand and hang it on the wall. A good way to raise money for sure! Diabetes Hands never wants any diabetic to feel alone. Neither does God. Our lives are literally in His hands.

“But even if mothers forget, I’d never forget you—never. Look, I've written your names on the backs of my hands.”

Isaiah 49

Return Of The Mystery House

I have an update on the Mystery House! For my new followers, this house is a few blocks away. For many years it has had this scaffold in front of it, yet no work is ever done!. There is no grass to mow because the tiny yard is full of flowers. There is always a truck parked in front, but never any signs of life.Well, awhile ago the scaffold disappeared and they got this pretty front door. I was amazed and pleased. But shortly later, the scaffold was back up, oy!!!  The mystery continues...

“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
Psalm 23

Monkeying Around

Look who we found at the County Fair last week! This little monkey and his owner were walking around performing. I loved them so much that I'm afraid I might have stalked them! The monkey's name is Jenga and he is 23 years old, which makes him a teenager. Notice he is dressed in the same outfit as his owner, they were sharp dressed! In the fifth picture you can see Jenga biting the money he gets. He has to make sure it is real before he puts it in the cup! He has been very well trained by his owner, who has had Jenga his whole life. I got to hold him and he pointed under his chin for me to scratch it...his fur is very soft and he is so gentle!! Then Phil took a turn to meet Jenga! A fun day!

 “Be blessed, God; train me in your ways of wise living.”
Psalm 119
