Good Day

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong --Joseph Chilton Pearce

Those who give freely from the heart create a flow of never ending love that fills themselves and the world with beauty.

Life is too short to let inconvenience keep you from living a happy life. --Joel Osteen

There are no new thoughts. Just new adaptions.

Happy Thanksgiving ~ Happy Hanukkah

The Joy Singers Aminta, Conchitta and Shelah.  
Their voices are inspirational.  

Every single Sunday we would sing this song before the Giving. . . I didn't realize how much I missed it and that I remembered it all.

Praise God from whom
All blessings flow
Praise him all creatures here below
Praise him above you heavenly host
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Andy Piercy & David Clifton © 1993 IQ Music Limited

Definitely this is a Special time to spend with family, friends. . . . Especially with God, Praising Him all the day long.

Happy Hanukkah.

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

Back to church this evening for the Missionaries to Hungary service.  Mike & Nancy Juntunen shared with us what they are doing in Hungary and how they got into Global Missions. The started out as Youth Pastors at New Horizon Worship Center. 
 Mike, Pastor Mathai, Nancy and wives of other pastors.

Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all He has donePhil. 4:6

Sunrise, Moon, Aggravated Ducks, and Squirrel

Not a raging fire, but it is my Sunrise this morning.
 Amazing Sunrise to the East.
 Moon not nearly so full is overhead.
 Three ducks ready to eat?
 Nope here they come, see the others . . . .
Finally all get across safely and one flies in (too blurry to include).
 7 at the Duck Breakfast Club this morning. . . .no Wait. . .
 9 in the picture, but another is getting a drink. . .10 this morning.
As I come back by, I notice a fight brewing. . . .
they were picking at each other at breakfast too.
Good morning . .. . . .I managed to get a close up.
Life is short, don’t take it for granted, don’t waste precious time.

When we pray  God hears more than we say, He answers more than we ask, He gives more than we imagine, but. . . .in His own time, in His own way! So keep the faith. . . .

Ducks, Egrets, Moon and Clouds

 The moon and a few clouds at the beginning of my walk.
Here they come, hurrying.
Sunrise!! Not exactly. . . .
Duck Breakfast Club (the 2 across the street didn't come over)
 On the way back, several were at the water's edge.
The Egrets do not eat duck food, only the bread crumbs.
S Q U I R R E L posing. . .I asked him to, he stopped and responded.
Finally, I arrived home just in time for the Sunrise.
 However, you can see what is in store for us today.
We broke a rainfall record yesterday. . .
we were beginning a drought so it was welcome. 

A true friend doesn’t care if you’re broke, being a bitch, what you weigh, if your hair is a house is a mess, what you drive, about your past, or if your family is filled with crazy people.  They Love you for who you are. . .

Moon, Sunrise (sort of), and Ducks

The moon was behind the clouds and decided to peek through.
The sun is trying to find a break in the clouds.
Three ducks are waiting. . .another is by the canal.
I crossed the street to feed the other 3.
Finally, the Sunrise. . . pushing the clouds away and up.
 Even the clouds around the moon are leaving.
Pretty soon there is blue sky where the moon is. . .however,
there are very dark clouds around the horizon.
 Ah, the sun finally is making it's presence known.
 Coming back to the bridge, I see all 7 ducks.
And a Anhinga. . .she went into the water fishing 
just after I took this picture.


Some people will better your life by being in it, while others will better it by staying out.

Moon & Star, Clouds and Ducks, Squirrels

 Last night the moon was big with a wisp of a cloud.
 More clouds below it . . . looking east.
 This morning the moon and the star in the west.
 There were only two ducks today on this side of the street.
I did drop some feed for them.
 After I had crossed the street, I saw another one.
They are not sitting on the rail. . .they are at the canal bank.
 The majority of the ducks were on this side.
 The Duck Breakfast Club as 9, however 6 of them are here 
and 3 are over there.
 Looking west the clouds take on a pink tinge.
Looking east the sun is coming up and a jet went by overhead.
 Squirrel posing for me.
 And another peeking out to say HI.
 There are 2 on the ground playing.
Fun 4 miles this morning.

You are more than. . . your past, your financial situation, your job, your personality, your triumphs, your failures . . .You are a child of God. John 1:12

Clouds, Egrets and Duck Breakfast Club

Rainy morning. . .Clouds from west.
 More Clouds from west.
 Looking East. . .sunrise!!!
 I think it's going to be a rainy day today! Still looking East.
 Egrets, notice the darker one in the middle bent over.
 I first came upon him when I arrived at the bridge.
I did give him some duck food.
However, crossing over the bridge here are the rest of them.
 Counting Mr. Duck on the other side of the canal, 
the Duck Breakfast Club has 7 ducks today.
 The Egrets came around, but they are NOT into duck food.
 Uh Oh BREAD CRUMBS came out the call for the
other side of the street and off they all flew.

The eyes are useless when the mind is blind.
