Sunset at Taneycomo

The worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work.

Sunset fishing at Lake Taneycomo in southern Missouri. He got his line wet, the fish weren’t biting, but he went to sleep relaxed.

It’s all about the bait. And being patient.

Perfect Place to Be

For my DH who waits so patiently for a fish’s bite:

The worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work!

And from my viewpoint on this beautiful water … ahhhhh!

Warmth in the Bleak Mid-Winter

Leaving the Midwest for a week and getting away to Cozumel, Georgetown on Grand Cayman, and Jamaica for a week was just what the doctors ordered!  The blues and greens of the skies and water, the colorful painted buildings and dress of the people, the friendly cultures, the flora and fauna, and the plethora of historic facts just waiting to be seen and heard were more than we expected.  This great escape was indeed a welcome break and an awesome rest.

We thank the Lord for safe travel, and for the renewal and energizing getaway to recharge us and help us return to our daily work! Now if we could just skip directly into Spring!

Chloe, Betty, & Her HS Friend

This clever saying was stitched onto a needlepoint pillow in Betty’s home:

“A dog has a master. A cat has a staff.”

So true!

I captured these snapshots last week when I visited Betty, who is healing well from a broken hip and surgery, and her H.S. friend.  Thank You, Lord.

Betty and her cat, Chloe, are true besties! They adore one another.

I truly think each is a “staff person/staff furson” for the other.

Resurrection Bay, Alaska

 

DH and I were looking at vacation photos, and agree that this is one of our favorite locations–Resurrection Bay, Alaska. Here we enjoyed the quiet & peacefulness, the blues and greens, the reflections, and the mountain views. It’s amazing that Alaska has been warmer than St Louis on some of our winter days…so that warms our hearts! We wanna go back. Soon. Thank You, God, for Your awesome creation!
