It’s Thoughtful Thursday A day to step back – reflect What does today hold?
I won’t jump right in I’ll stand at the water’s edge Dip my toe in it
Think about the day Ponder possibilities Hear my soul speaking
Embrace Thoughtfulness Listen to thoughts as water Falls with purity
Pile rocks as you pray Putting important things first Each rock is a task
Choose them carefully Tasks are opportunities Order thoughtfully
Let your thoughts reflect Then allow them to emerge As a daily plan
Pause, pray and listen Plan, and then jump in with faith Embrace Thoughtfulness.
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
Have a calm, thoughtful, and a purposeful Thursday. See ya tomorrow. JanBeek
Yellowstone National Park

I love the turpuoise, green, and orange.
It was a day of mild temperatures, blue sky with beautiful puffy clouds.
Old Faithful blew about 15 minutes early.
We were glad to be there to see it.
There is no site in Yellowstone that I enjoy more than Artist’s Point.
Sofia was impressed with its beauty, too.
It’s called the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Pictures don’t do it justice!
You can see here the yellow stone that caused the park’s name.
Then we headed for Lamar Valley where the buffalo roam.
It was a pain to get in a half an hour of stop-and-go traffic where the bison were crossing the road in Lamar Valley, but when we had to stop for one to pass right smack in front of our car, that was quite an experience – quite worth the wait!
They are impressive animals.
On the way home, we stopped at Palisades for a rest stop…
and enjoyed the gorgeous scenery there.
It was a great day.
Thanks for traveling vicariously with us!
Do you think Sofia had a good time?
Tomorrow is our Ennis Arts Festival. Come visit the art and artists there with me. I love entertaining visitors. Be my virtual guest!
