Go Mark Up Your Bible


It’s okay to write
All over the Bible page
Try on the scriptures

Let them show to you
The messages of your heart
Picture the sunset

Remember goodness
Take the righteousness and truth
Take light from God’s love

Make your face to shine
On the pages of scripture
Carry His statutes

Give thanks to the Lord
His love endures forever
Rejoice and be glad

It’s another day
To mark a fav’rite scripture
It’s OK. Take joy!

Go sing a new song!

Sing with the angels!
He has done marvelous things!
I’ll see ya later.

Montana Sunset


Montana Sunset
from Virginia City Hill

VC Firetruck tour8

Virginia City, Montana

Last night I was invited to join 16 other friends on an old firetruck tour of our nearby “Ghost Town” – old mining town – still our Madison County capitol – Virginia City.

The tour began around 7:45 pm. The driver spoke non-stop into his microphone and gave us a history of this town where gold brought 60,000 people to live and mine in the period from 1863 to around the beginning of 1900.

Sunset over the Tobacco Root Range

We watched the sun set as we listened to the fascinating stories of the Old West.

Headed through the little one main road town on Highway 287, we passed the old courthouse, built in 1876, still beautiful and useful today.

Heading up the hill, we passed the welcome sign, acknowledging that VC has been “Resisting change since 1863.”

About 200 people call this home year-round … maybe double that number in the summertime. But, it’s a great tourist trap. Check it out on your AAA brochures! They give it 5 stars, I think.

There are plenty of old homes on Main Street (287) and the street just above it. Don’t miss Elling House and the old stone Episcopal Church a couple blocks up the hill. Also, the old Opera House, with its great Vaudevillle type performances, at the west end of town is a must see!

The sky kept getting prettier and prettier!

We stopped at the top of Virginia City Hill by an old cemetery for some appetizers at about 8:45 pm…

…and continued to admire the sunset.

It was dazzling!

And as the sliver of a moon began to shine in a darkening sky, we headed home.

Just love one another…

Montana Evening


We had a wonderful Montana evening with friends in our “Hood.”

Even though their house is just around the bend from us,
their view is different from ours.

Enjoy a reverse order evening…

Behind those trees is our house.
Don’t you love the open spaces and Big Sky with puffy clouds?
Our “Hood” Gathering:
Charley Ducsay, Diane, Terri, Janet Ducsay, Gary, me, Bob & Henry
Happy 50th anniversary to Diane & Gary!!
Wouldn’t you love to watch the sun set
from such a great place
with wonderful neighbors like ours?

I wish you health, happiness, good neighbors,
and blessings to spare each day.

Have a good night.
See you tomorrow.

This is the Madison River, just a couple miles south of Ennis, Montana. I have the privilege of living in ths world-class fly-fishing area!

South-east of us, the Madison River flows out of Hebgen Lake. The Madison’s origin is the Gibbon and the Firehole Rivers in Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park is just an hour’s drive from us.

You can see why our Madison Valley is considered part of “Big Sky Country” – the views are magnificent. The sky is uninterrupted.

Thank you, Scott Wheeler, for your fantastic photography.
If you want a copy of his work, my friends,
be sure to come to our Ennis Arts Festival this August 10th.
Look me up! I’ll be there.

Bob & I don’t see the river from our house, but we look out at Jack Creek Canyon in that magnificent Madison Range. The western sunset reflecting red in the eastern mountains often is part of our night’s “light show.”

These next two photos are mine…
taken a couple weeks ago
when we still had some snow on the ground.

Here is the western view.
Our house is the one tucked in
all those evergreen trees out there…

… and here is the eastern reflection:

Yes, we are blessed.

 

You have a blessed day, my friends.

Happy Friday!

Heartache


The Hearings

The heartache

Of yesterday’s

Dying day

Will live on

In our memories

As cinders

In the heap

Of society’s sorrows.
