Job 38:36

Job 38:36

King James Version (KJV)
36 Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?

Wildlife Gathering

All I can say is today was a very, very abundant day for wildlife!  First, the turkeys came into the yard to eat. Then a deer poked it's head up over the hill to watch.  Soon the deer climbed up into the yard and joined the turkey to feast on vegetation.  They ate side by side like that for a while and then here came the baby deer to join in!  As if they felt left out the ducks came quacking up to them all but they snubbed the ducks pretty quickly :(
I felt a little bit disappointed that I couldn't get this gathering on video but I was glued to my spot so that I wouldn't scare them all away.

Wild Turkey

Today I woke up and walked out the door to be greeted by 20 or so wild turkey!  I was unable to get to the camera quick enough to get to them all but I managed to capture a few.

Let Go

Difficult Day

Today is a difficult day for me.  We are dropping the puppies off at the shelter this evening.  We have fostered them through their sickness and they are healthy and lively now.  They will make great dogs for someone out there.
An old friend must have felt my distress and stopped by to see me today.  This is Francais.  I nurtured him back to health earlier this year.  He was getting attacked by dogs and was quite battered.  Once he was well I let him go and he took off quickly(well quickly for a turtle).  I turned my back and decided not to watch him go but wished him the best.  So he picked today to visit me and show me he was doing just fine.
I know I have heard that some things and people are only in our life for a season.  The quicker this is accepted the better you are able to deal with the pain.  However, some are harder to let go of than others and you will feel pain and that is just one fact of life little grasshopper ;)

Mountain Dew Whirlpool

I know this isn't the most beautiful or inspiring picture but I took this in a parking lot.  I thought it was really neat :)



May the warm winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit

Bless all who enter there.
May your moccasins make
Happy tracks in many snows,
And may the Rainbow always touch your shoulder.

Seriously isn't this great to hear!  In a world where we are convinced that we must constantly be striving, striving, striving doesn't it feel wonderful to hear this.  I know I personally at times feel useless if I am not "contributing."  The pressure we put on ourselves is often overwhelming.  Who tells us that we are nothing if we can't do?  Never mind who is telling us because what is more important is why do we choose to believe it?  If I can't "do" or "be" for you well then guess what it doesn't make me any less valuable.

Is it Tomatos or Tomatoes I Always Forget

Ok either way I love these little red fruits!  My tomatoes did not do so well this year I had very few actually.  I attempted to grow some in a container on the porch due to my limited  mobility.  I am grateful for what I did get though.  However, for the past few weeks my aunt and uncle have been providing me with plenty of my favorite fruit.  I went out and picked the last good batch of them yesterday along with some jalapenos.
So last night I started some spaghetti sauce made from fresh tomatoes.  So, so good!
For brunch today I was more than happy to have some fried green tomatoes.  I love summer food!

  As for the jalapenos I plan on making some homemade jalapeno poppers..   I have never attempted to make them before so hopefully they turn out well.
Summer is winding down and I am definitely grateful for these delicious treats while they are in abundance.  Thank You :)

Good Song

Paulo Coelho

Yes I am a huge fan of Paulo Coelho's writings.  This man knows how to express himself in ways that I can only dream of being able to do someday.  I would like to share a snippet of his writing from one of his blogs that have inspired me this evening.  When this man writes I hear it, I feel it, I know it.  It echoes through my soul like an unbelievably loud bell reminding me to WAKE UP WAKE UP WAKE UP.

In the face of defeat
The Warrior of Light knows how to lose. He does not hold defeat as something indifferent, using phrases like “well, it wasn’t all that important”, or “to tell the truth, I did not really want that”.
He accepts defeat as a defeat; he does not try to change it into a victory or an experience. He suffers the pain of his wounds, the indifference of his friends and the loneliness of loss. At such moments he says to himself: “I fought for something, and I failed to get it. I lost the first battle.”
This phrase will give him strength. He is aware that nobody wins all the time – but the courageous always win in the end.

Puppy Update

The abandoned puppies we found on the side of a back country road are doing a lot better thanks to the animal shelter.  Although we took the puppies into our home and cared for them it soon became apparent that they were not well.  We did not have any extra money to take them to the vet so we took them to the shelter to see if they were adoptable.  Unfortunately because of their health issues they were not adoptable however, they treated the puppies for mange, worms, infections and also gave them their first puppy shots.  We were told that we could continue to foster the puppies at our home until they are well in hopes that they will then be adoptable.
They are doing so much better and I really believe they will be taken into loving homes as soon as we bring them to the shelter.
