She Did What??

Last week I spotted a beautiful groundhog out in my driveway.  I grabbed the camera and upon taking the pictures, I noticed this was obviously a very "pregnant" groundhog! So you're thinking, okay, why is this such a big deal right?

Well, a few days later I found where her home was located.  She has dug quite a nice hole going under my home.  There's a door used to access underneith my mobile home that's right under the deck.  So I began to ask around to find a "humane" trap to catch her.  Well, tomorrow my son was going to bring the trap out.  Too late!!!  She reemerged from her comfy home yesterday morning to roam around. Guess what?  Yep, you've got it!  She's a lot smaller and has obviously had her babies now!!
Now look a little bit closer.....

and now as she stands up...

Notice the evidence of nursing babies? LOL So now she notices the cat in the window.  She figures out she's safe and begins to taunt the cat. In the previous pics, wh…

Rain Drops and Tear Drops

"The pastures in the wilderness glisten with moisture, and the hills are clothed with joy."  Psalms 65:12.

Oh how blessed I am to have the ability to see God's beauty!!  How often do we take for granted the simple things in life?  For instance, the ability to "see" so many of God's creations.  One of my favorite things to do, as my pain permits, is to grab the camera and try to capture the beauty of God's magnificent drawing board.

After a peaceful evening rain shower, I stepped outside to breathe in the freshness of the crisp, clean air.  I had taken a few pictures of the passing clouds.  Then I turned to see the tiny drops of leftover rain dripping from the leaves of my first tree I had planted here on my property.  The one little rain drop seemed to just be slowly lingering on the end of one of the leaves.   God had my attention in that very moment.  I was able to capture that moment in time and added a bible verse.

How often do we overlook someth…

Which Do You Chose?

I love getting up early and catching the morning sunrise.  It's amazing how different they are from day to day. Sometimes they are gorgeous, like the one I caught in the above photo, and sometimes they are not so bright.  Sort of like life, some days are full of fun and laughter and some days seem to be full of problems.  
At the young age of 51, yep I said it, I'm 51!  I've finally reached the place in my life, a few years ago, that I can find beauty in most every day!  Even if my physical body is screaming with pain.  I can find something to take my mind off the negative.  Life can be what we make it folks.  I've had more than my share of pain, sorrow and heartache.  But without these things we can't appreciate the amazing blessings.  It's all in what our perspective is on life.  I chose peace, God, prayer, laughter, smiles, and love!  
I've recently had a burning desire to make amends with those that I've had strained relationships.  I want to be ab…
