Loving One Another

Look Closely


Look at this closely

Windmills and advertisements

Snow covered mountains

Leaving the desert

Sign asks, “Where are you going?”

Word below: Heaven

Yes, eventually!

But don’t send me there too soon.

First, we’re headed home.

Christmas still is there

Waiting to be taken down.

Can’t it last all year?

Keep on playing!

See ya later.

Wonder Woman


I make you wonder
I may make you ask aloud
What is she up to?

Does she have a box?
Does anything fit in it?
You wonder what’s there?

It’s not a Yorkie!
I hate little yippy dogs!
Simply annoy me.

No, Downton Abbey
Is not in my box either.
Avoid those accents!

My box has people –
It has lots of messy stuff –
Lying everywhere.

Lied about accents –
I love them, but Bob does not.
Has trouble hearing!

Lied about Yorkies –
I like little dogs, not Bob!
Not the yippy ones!!

Did not lie about
People being in my box –
I love all people.

Especially those
Who teach me to cook gnocchi!
Who is in your box?

Do you have ladies
Who leap out and warm your heart?
Here’s Wonder Woman!

Wonder how she is…
Wonder how my people are
Back home in Ennis.

Wonder how YOU are…
I wonder what’s in your box…
Is it full of love?

I wonder…

Have a Wonder – ful Wednesday!
What’re you up to today?

See ya later.

I’m off to find my box!

A Peaceful Desert Walk


The last time we walked in this desert, we had our Boston, TazE, with us.

The desert was greener and healthier looking. Our walking path this year had dog tracks, reminding us of our furry friend. She’s back in Montana being well cared for. Our rental this year doesn’t allow pets.

There’s been a fire since our last visit here. The desert brush all is scorched.

But it still is a peaceful place to walk. I knew we were 3/4 of the way around our course when this familiar landmark showed up.

It is a beautiful, clear blue sky 70 degree day. Wish you were here!

Do you have a peaceful place to walk undisturbed where you are?

It was invigorating!

Meantime, back in Montana, the antelope are enjoying a peaceful day, too. But their weather is considerably different from what we’re experiencing here in southern CA. Look at the picture my friend, Elaine, sent me today:

We are happy to be taking a sunshiny break for awhile.
Our friends from Ennis just came to join us for a couple days. Yay!
Wish you were here, too.

See ya tomorrow.

Improve Your Morning


Improve your routine
‘Cuz when your morning’s better
Your whole day is, too.

Which of these 15 suggestions are NOT already part of your morning routine? The one that’s lacking for me is exercise! So, if I’m gonna “Walk the Talk” as I promised myself, I guess I better start walking, huh?

It’s another beautiful morning here. I’m outta here.

I think I’ll look at things from outside for awhile.
You wanna walk with me?
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Come on along…

Living in Love


My dear husband, Bob

I’m living in love;
I’m truly blessed every day.
Each day is a gift.

Yes, there are others
Living life as Hell on earth;
My heart prays for them.

Fires, floods, and war,
Make life anything but blessed;
Life may seem hopeless.

How can my listening
Help bring love into those lives
In a living hell?

Sometimes I feel
Almost guilty with my life
Being trouble-free.

I’m not complaining
About the blessings in life;
I pray them for you.

How can Australians
Facing massive destruction
Have a blessed day?

Can Iranians
Living under threat of war
Have a blessed day?

Can Puerto Ricans
Facing earthquake’s aftermath
Have a blessed day?

Can YOU in your place
Facing everyday troubles
Have a blessed day?

Sometimes life throws curves
(Like my burst appendix day) –
Yes, we all have them.

Life is not a bed
Filled with sweet smelling roses.
We must endure thorns.

Most thorns are prickly
(That’s just the nature of them).
Some are treacherous.

I pray your thorns are
Short-lived inconveniences,
Not life-threatening.

Round out the corners;
Set your feet firmly on ground
Supported by love.

May you live in love.
May you feel blessed every day.
That’s my prayer for you.

How may I support you in a specific prayer?
Tell me!

Have a blessed day.
See ya tomorrow.

Put Up With It


“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”
Dolly Parton

We are headed for a weekend with our dear friends, the Ducsays. They live 6 months in our “hood” in Montana and 6 months in Southern California. We are in miserable 😩 CA traffic. But, if ya wanna see your friends, Dolly Parton would tell us, ya gotta put up with the traffic.

When we went to our son’s for Christmas, we stopped overnight at a half way point, and woke up to snow covered cars the next morning. Dolly would say, “If ya wanna see family who live two days away, ya gotta sacrifice a little time and comfort.”

Last night we had dinner with Bob’s brother and his wife. We enjoyed this week’s visit with them. Don’t feel like we had to “put up” with anything to enjoy their company. But, they had to “put up” with us! We’re so grateful for their love and hospitality!

What “rain” do you have to “put up with” in order to see your next 🌈 rainbow 🌈?

That Dolly Parton quote was part of an excellent post by Barbara Franken today. Her blog inspired these thoughts of mine. Check it out! There is lots of “meat” in it to chew on. Not hard to “put up” with her at all!

Barbara’s WordPress site is “Me, My Magnificent Self.”

Have a Fabulous Friday and a Wonderful Weekend.

See ya later.

Have Faith and Step Out


Life Swirls Around You

Back in 2012, shortly after I first started blogging, I posted this poem that I wrote at least 20 years ago. It is more true today than it was then… and fits perfectly into the theme of the blog I posted earlier today.

Have Faith and Step Out

Don’t overlook your life’s importance
or minimize your worth.
It doesn’t matter if you’re on an allowance
or on Social Security;
No matter where you are in life,
You have so much to give.

The vital part of your life
Never disappears or fades away.
Each of us is vital to God.
He gives us the courage to go out and live,
to heed His call and step out in faith
on a new journey today.

In faithful obedience, lean forward
to hear Him; He doesn’t shout.
His call is quiet and personal.
Get serious. Listen carefully.
Are you up for a new journey?
Have faith and step out!

Yup, step out!

Thanks for checking back in with me.
See ya tomorrow.
