The Coming Storm



The sky was windy, warm and bleak
As we watched this scene unfold last week.
These men were working hard to cover
While up above a storm did hover.
The sun set fast, the rain came at last
The covers pulled tight, their field safe for the night
See the rain in the distance in my last pic?
Can you guess what these men were doing so quick?
On my next post you’ll see the rest
The story of our latest quest.


“Soar high in the skies, O God! Cover the whole earth with your glory!”

Posh Piggy Palace



I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. ~ Winston Churchill

Don't worry, Phil and I have not gotten pet pigs! We were actually driving down a major highway, and there was a big field on one side. We saw what looks like a train car that was made into a pig house! Now this is really fancy for a pig, around here the pig houses are little more than dirt hovels very close to the ground. As we watched, these two perky porcines came trotting out to see us, notice how well they blend in with the mud? Pigs are curious creatures. I would like to meet the man who created this pig mansion, we need an extension on our house.


“For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.”

A Place In The Sun



I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.  ~Vincent Van Gogh

I snapped this sunset about two hours ago, up on a hill by the horse farm. Peaceful and free from drug dealers, honking horns, and all other distractions. I felt if I could breathe it all in, I might live forever.


God brings death and God brings life, brings down to the grave and raises up. God brings poverty and God brings wealth; he lowers, he also lifts up. He puts poor people on their feet again; he rekindles burned-out lives with fresh hope, Restoring dignity and respect to their lives— a place in the sun! For the very structures of earth are God’s; he has laid out his operations on a firm foundation.
