Nibbles and Sips Storm-sided

40 hours ago I tilled my garden as all the snow in that space had melted. Even the earthworms and night crawlers were up as the frost has come out of the ground. A couple hours ago I took the header picture from our front deck. I won’t be planting seeds today. It’s still snowing.Continue reading “Nibbles and Sips Storm-sided”

It’s Picnic Season

Spring is not officially recognized in our family until we can have an picnic. I guess it was up to me to find the fire pit, check and make sure fires wouldn’t spread and burn down the forest and make the picnic table presentable. My pictures prove it. Spring has come to northern Minnesota!! MyContinue reading “It’s Picnic Season”

Navigating Winds Seasons

Clattering branches snows lost in thought shifting blame winds of the soul I’m waiting for Spring. Wanting another season. Nature says not yet. Gary ┬áBut you, O Lord, know me; you see me, and test my heart toward you. Jeremiah 12:3a, ESV

For what it is

Evil walked into the store. The wretched man was encased. I looked into his hollow eyes that darted everywhere but seeing only his own pain. He was giving all his food away. Like a madman desperate to give everything away. Now. It had to be now. I had to take it or he was puttingContinue reading “For what it is”

Life On Deck

There were two Hittites, Sven and Ole, who dearly loved baseball. They loved the sport so much that a pact was made between them. They each promised the other that whomever died first would come back and tell the other if there was baseball in heaven. Well, time went on and Sven was in anContinue reading “Life On Deck”

Rambling Like a Rabbit Chasing five Blades of Grass in the Wind

David of Davids Daily Dose used my other lake sundogs picture today (All Haiku, click here) My favorite I think. I have been surprised to see that my photos posted on Unsplash for free download have hit 2.4 million views and 13,000 downloads. Most pleasing is when I see pictures put to good use. IContinue reading “Rambling Like a Rabbit Chasing five Blades of Grass in the Wind”

Nature Reaching and Preaching

Stepping outside before daylight a couple days ago an eerie feeling came over me. I couldn’t place it until later in the day. I stood beside the lake and it was completely froze over. Silence. All was quiet. The last two weeks the lake was full of very noisy swans, geese, ducks and some cranesContinue reading “Nature Reaching and Preaching”

Combined Beauty pageant

Sunday thought: God combined fall and winter. I think He loves creative beauty and wants us to enjoy those moments. Even the micro fleeting beauty of a reflection in a raindrop can be enjoyed should we pause to do so. A pause to enjoy gives us pause to delve deeper into who our creator isContinue reading “Combined Beauty pageant”

Old Story Still True

We often know a person (we think) through their writing. Like many, I probably disclose myself in small measured doses through my writing as most of us reveal without even knowing it. I had forgot about this old post. Jack Flacco of https://lookingtogod.org/ pointed me back to a lot of memories from an old postContinue reading “Old Story Still True”
