‘Climate’ Change


Kermit

Yesterday Kermit was relaxing at his VRBO (Vacation Rock By Owner). Overnight ‘climate change’ set-in dropping 4 “ of white stuff and the temps 40 degrees.  Kermit quickly abandoned his rock, checking into Muddy Bottoms to hide out for the remainder of the winter.

Uncertainty is a certainty of Life. The new year has arrived with devastation . . . surging pandemic numbers; tornadoes; blizzards; hurricane force winds bellowing raging fires, all wreaking a wake of destruction and tragedy. Tomorrow, but for the grace of God, could find any of us ravaged by such unforeseen ‘climate’ changes.

Thankfully, unlike Kermit, we have the option to face this world’s ‘climate’ changes and avoid checking into in Muddy Bottoms to hide out . . . we can permanently book a VRBO (Verified Rock By Owner), verified since the dawn of creation to withstand any disaster . . .

Rock of ages , cleft for me,

May I hide myself in Thee.”

Be Blessed, and Keep Looking Up . . . His best is yet to come!

Flowers and Fire . . . Smiles and Spirits


Fireweed is named for its ability to rapidly colonize areas burned by fire. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance, and hope for a peaceful future.

Wandering the woods today my thoughts drifted into a muddled ambivalence. Past fires have regretfully scorched areas of my life … yet . . . I’m forever grateful having been mercifully spared, anticipating a forever peaceful future.

Flowers produce smiles, and smiles lift spirits. Native fireweed and poppy blooms lifted mine today.
