Were you up last night? Looking at the moon? Were you glued to a TV or computer screen? I hope not… God was working His majesty. A rare ‘blue moon’, a fitting wink to Neil Armstrong by the cosmic calendar. He was buried yesterday… I hope that he is seeing it from a different perspective tonight.
“By the dawn’s early light”… famous words that mean so much to Americans. Get up early… look at the sunrise and think about the things that might happen that day! Look forward to each day that the Lord grants!
Pulled into a boat yard to take a few pictures for my book…. a friend spotted the Barbara J…. my mind went racing and I was suddenly in the open water …fishing for salmon… telling the crew what to do, pulling in line after line of salmon and then in a flash I awoke from my dream and realized that I was in dry dock waiting for someone to buy me and love me again.
NO…I don’t remember this ….. the Coke that I bought out of this was 60 cents and in a can… but I am sure that is not what started out in this Coke cooler. Things change.. people change… products change… prices change… BUT sometimes its nice to think aout what was “back in the day”!
We have put a kind of hierarchy on flowers. We value some more than others. We pay more, we put forth a lot more effort for particular varieties. We discard many as “weeds”. I believe that I have said before…. all of God’s flowers were created on the same day by the same Creator. I know that this lovely zinnia was created at the same time as the beautiful orchid.
Someone worked really hard… the farmer plowed and planted the garden… God gave the sunshine and the rain…someone picked, sorted, cleaned and pickled the bounty… all of this to be sold for $6.00 in the sweetest old store and Post Office in Evinston, FL. Thanks to everyone.
