The weather is changing where I live. Winter is here! I am really nervous about driving in it. I am used to driving only blocks to get to work and most other places. Now that we have moved I have a commute. Because of the weather and traffic I decided to get snow tires for the first time ever. I am hoping that will make a difference. The season has barely begun and there has already been treacherous driving conditions and many accidents. It made for an idea for a post today so I have a little rhyme for you. I hope you enjoy!
A WORD OF CAUTION
The alarm clock rings
The birds outside sing
You jump out of bed
Need to get everyone fed
No time to make a meal
Jump in car hands on wheel
McDonalds is on the way
Gotta get on with the day
Let me give you a word of caution
Things happen when you’re not careful & watching
And the crew is not ready for the disorder
From this kind of drive through food order

Things are still such a whirlwind for me since we’ve moved. All I want to do is get the new place together. But life always has other plans. There is always other things that come up or simply just other things to do. But there is progress. I can see most of the living room floor now. We haven’t seen the floor behind the couch for 6 weeks since it is a good place to put boxes.
Cino seems to really enjoy her new home with more space and stairs she can run up and down. I was told the people who lived here before us had a big dog and that he would bark out the window all day. The neighbors seem to think Continue reading →
This is a bit more serious type post than the usual “light” posts I try to do on Sundays. But when I write posts the ideas usually come from something that happened the previous week.
It started from last Sundays sermon at church that was titled “What Would Jesus Post?” It got me thinking about how there is so much negativity and ugliness out there on social media. There is also a lot of negativity and ugliness in the world. Of course there is good too. But often the bad is focused on more than the good as I find the news is, which is why I do not watch news. We are bombarded with messages that put fear in us, make us worry, feel angry, and so on.
As my pastor said the world is actually suppose to be a preview of what’s to come. We are not suppose to live as if this is all there is until the world ends. We are to live heaven on earth now. So what will heaven be like? No more pain, fear, fighting, abuse, illness, and so on. OK…so we can’t make ALL that happen now but we can do our part to try to live our lives as God intended. We can practice loving one another and loving dominion over the earth and the animals. When we do that we bring a little bit of heaven to earth.
Things are so busy for me with the move and I can tell will be for a while. But where I live the last few days we’ve had beautiful weather and I made sure I took time to sit back and enjoy it.
I stopped unpacking and organizing around 6:00 last night so I could sit down, look out the window and enjoy having the windows open, write this post and watch “Jurassic World.” I do not like horror movies or Godzilla type movies but there is something about Jurassic movies I do like. Except, of course, the parts where the dinosaurs are chasing after a pig or when a goat is tied up waiting to be their dinner. 😦
