R & R

If you’re a senior, R & R may be Recliner Reminiscing. Doing so, I’m  both amazed and grateful for the legions of guardian angels (they’re all bald by now ) who’ve graciously navigated me along countless troublesome rabbit trails to finally arrive at the Fall/Winter juncture of life’s journey. Perhaps it’s the unknown duration of Winter that spurs my desire to linger in Fall a bit longer before stepping across the final season border. 

Here’s a pic of the magnificent Greatland fall creationscape, and two feral companions who share it with me.

Whatever life season this finds you in, enjoy the day we’ve each been blessed with.

Attitude – a choice

Our nation’s wounded warriors evoke a sense of deep compassion and appreciation, serving as a poignant reminder that there, but for the grace of God, go I. Forever scarred by sacrificial missing limbs they of all have reason to be despondent and upset with their lot in life. However, many like the remarkable wounded warrior in this short video choose not to, and in so doing humble and inspire all of us to keep on keeping on regardless of whatever obstacles we may encounter along our life’s journey . . . Thank you Travis.

Keep Looking Up

Soap Up!

Hurricanes, forest fires, mass shootings, wars, poverty, etc. . . . so much evil exists in our world.

Hiking into the wilderness I’m blessed to temporarily ‘escape’ all this evil wandering among such awesome creationscapes as this pic taken in Alaska’s Talkeetna Range. It comforts my soul, and brought to mind this quote from Billy Graham serving as a poignant reminder of the crucial need for Christians to  . . . ‘soap up’ and wash regularly . . . time for me to ‘soap up’ and jump back in the shower 🙂

“Someone once asked Billy Graham, “If Christianity is valid, why is there so much evil in the world?’

To this Mr. Graham replied, “With so much soap, why are there so many dirty people in the world? Christianity, like soap, must be personally applied if it is to make a difference in our lives.”
