Well I spent a month not being able to blog. In that month I decided to stop blogging. I disconnected my internet 6 or 7 weeks ago; I started going to my daughter’s house to use her internet service. I was sick with my vertigo problem and could not leave home for 2 weeks. Then my daughter got a virus and was sick for 2 weeks and I could not go to her home and perhaps catch this virus. During this time I found that I returned to a life I had before internet. I found I enjoyed the free time to do things I once use to do, but did not have time for anymore. I now, am writing a second book, reading books, painting, drawing, spending time with friends and family; face to face. I have enjoyed blogging with all of my blogger friends, I will miss you, but at age 75 it is time for this old lady to go back to the old ways of life. Ha So farewell and may God bless each of you in your lives.
I will leave you with this lovely sunset . . .
Sometimes the sunset is not in the correct place in the sky. The sunset in the West was not colorful at all a few nights ago. But – in the Southeast this beautiful cloud was floating high in the sky. As the sun from the West reflected on this huge cloud, a glorious color began to appear in the Southeast sky. I have seen this happen quite often and the results is spectacular; as you can see by the photo below. This photo is not enhanced, this is exactly what my eyes and my camera lens viewed.
It had been raining, but seemed to move out of our area after dropping 3 inches of rain. As it began to clear we saw a beautiful sunrise. We decided to take a ride up North toward Paradise Road. A beautiful road, with daisies and flowers growing in the road ditches.
Well, we found the rain in the North and picture taking was out of the question; for quite some time. In fact, seeing where we were going was quite a feat.
But . . . After the rain began to fall less and less, we saw the most colorful and beautiful rainbow we had seen in a long time.
The clouds were so white and fluffy in the sky as we drove along.
This is the stretch of road near our house. On the left side of the highway, among the big trees in the center of this picture is Home Sweet Home. What a glorious day to be out in nature. Despite the rain, it was a relaxing and enjoyable ride.
When your life is troubled, or your heart is full of sorrow – lift your eyes to the sky and let God help and comfort you.
Can you see the fox walking on the clouds in this picture?
Give God the glory in your life and always put your faith in Him. He will never leave you nor fail you.
I have been busy and do not have the time to blog as much at this moment. I did want to share 2 photos from last week of spiderwebs covered with raindrops.
This is a spiderweb on the blackberry vines.

This is a confusing world. I saw hundreds of Geese flying North yesterday. They were extremely high in the air, which meant they were in the middle of a long flight. I wondered if they were as confused with the weather as all of us humans are. You see these geese are heading North at least 6 weeks earlier than normal. Despite our weather, the sun rises and the sun sets. So, I decided to include some photos of colorful skies.
I actually got a half hour of exercise – running circles on our 3 acres – to catch the changes in the sunset last night. I also gave my husband many laughs over my exciting antics. Just like a kid in a candy store, I was thrilled over the display in the sky.
I wish I were a great literary writer. A person who could sway men from hate; with words of compassion and love. The events surrounding the recent U.S. Presidential Election have grieved my soul. There has been enough malicious hate and hostility over this election.
Mankind needs to sit quietly, read God’s word, and ask themselves how God would deal with a situation like this. Love one another. Love is the fatherly concern of God for humankind. Romans 12:21 – Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
No matter how a person paraphrases their message of love – Evil people turn a deaf ear. It seems impossible to sway the hateful from their course. Yet, we must let our light shine for good in this world.
I am tired of hate, destructive demonstrations, and cruel words. God is the ruler of this universe and he shall prevail against the workers of iniquity.
At least give the new U.S. President – Donald J. Trump – a chance. Everyone deserves a chance to prove themselves. Did you ever think that God might have a reason for the outcome of this election?
Just as you till the soil in your garden each Spring – a renewing of the earth – let’s have a renewing of Faith in our God.
I have so many sunrises and sunsets I have not posted. I thought I would look back in my picture folders and share some lovely scenes and great quotes with you.
The following sunrise had such unusual clouds it looked more like a painting. Have never captured clouds like this before. None of these photos are altered, what you see is what I photographed. Just ask my camera. Ha
A blog full of humorous and poignant observations.
