8/25/2012 No… I don’t remember…

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”!

8/24/2012 I believe that I have said before…

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.

8/23/2012 Someone worked really hard…

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. 

8/22/2012 You don’t have to leave home!

You don’t have to leave home….  just look out your window as the sun is going down…. pay attention to the bush on the side of the house for the perfect rose…. look at the bird’s nest in the tree… watch the caterpillars as they eat your fennel… nature is all around us… waiting to be enjoyed and have its picture taken!  This sunset was waiting for me when I returned from Alaska.

8/21/2012 I didn’t know…

 I didn’t  know that Florida had a slave population but a recent drive around Marion County, FL revealed this old slave house.  I wonder what would be told by the people who lived here?  I would love to hear from them about their dreams, work and destiny but  I could really say that about any old house… I am sure they all have stories.

8/20/2012 Don’t give up…

Don’t give up on yourself…   Don’t give up on your friends, your children, your marriage… 

Learn to forgive others… that way you will learn to forgive yourself… 

Start each day with a prayer…  GOD doesn’t give up!
