The Bean Eaters

It was twilight, and we were parked by a field waiting for the super moon to rise. We turned to look at the field, and look who had come out for dinner! Phil believes this was a bean field, and they were sure getting their fill. They did not even run from us, so they must have been very hungry. Thank you so very much for your kind comments on my last post!

“Hard and honest work earns a good night’s sleep, Whether supper is beans or steak. But a rich man’s belly gives him insomnia.

A Friend's Accident

A friend died last night. Not a really close friend, but when he moved we kept in touch on Facebook. He was in his 20's, had a brilliant job, just got married a couple months ago. His whole life was ahead of him. He just bought a fancy new car. It was the car that killed him. Now he is brain dead and waiting to have his organs harvested.  I am the one to announce it all to the church, everyone is heartbroken. So I will not be visiting today, I will see you tomorrow or the next day. God is in control of everything.

Today I have a special post for my followers who have pets. Namely, cats and dogs. Our cats kept going into a room, and marking the edge of the door. The door slams shut and they are locked in. But I came across an awesome idea! I bought a pool noodle. You can get them almost anywhere in the summer and they are only one or two dollars. I got this yellow one at Wal-Mart. Anyway, cut off a piece at least six inches long and fit it onto the door edge. The door will not shut! It will just bounce back. Happy me, happy cats.

These lilies kind of remind me of the stargazers in my last post, but they are called DIZZY. And I was almost dizzy with giddiness with I saw them!

“Like a lily the land will blossom. It will rejoice and sing with joy. It will have the glory of Lebanon, the majesty of Carmel and Sharon. Everyone will see the glory of the Lord, the majesty of our God.”
