Here's What I Think...

1. Life IS interesting, if you let it be...

... like watching towels wash in a washing machine...
Nell helped me put the towels in the machine, so it only made sense she would want to watch.

And bringing down little bows from her upstairs bedroom - to go with her parents' clothes that they are wearing ... is fun.
I mean, the yellow goes with the yellow, the pink goes with the pink,
and OF COURSE, the blue goes with her daddy's shirt.
(You want to be coordinated.)
(You go, Nell!)

I didn't get Will's permission to show this picture with a bow matching his shirt,
but maybe I'll get forgiveness.

2. Here's something else I think...

If there is a sign like this in a park...
...  your dog must be on a leash!

Thursday a cute puppy (off leash!) was eating a mozzarella stick near me that had fallen to the ground because of the strong wind (at a park). The puppy's' owner started yelling at him to not eat that - and she was looking at me meanly, as if I had let him eat that mozzarella stick.
(I wanted to bark, "Grrr.")

Another time - years ago - I was walking our sweet dog Marco in Woodland Hills park. A huge dog started running towards us barking. His owner was yelling, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry!"  I began calmly telling Marco to 'stay' and that we would be okay (those weren't my feelings, just my voice). Fortunately Marco stayed calm and we found out that that huge dog just wanted us to be his new best friends. Whew!
(My heart still beats fast when I think about that incident.)

3. Here's another thing I think: super fast drivers, with their loud engines roaring, freak me out.
I've thought that maybe I'm of the age to quit driving on the freeways. Hmm.

4. Another thing I think: the scariest person on earth is: Kim Jong Un of North Korea.

5. And finally: I don't know how people cope without hope.
Not long ago I came across Psalm 71:14-15.
"As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more
My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds,
of your saving acts all day long—
though I know not how to relate them all." (Psalm 71:14-15)

That last statement ("I know not how to relate them all.") helps me.
It tells me that I do not have to understand how God gives me hope.
He gives me hope.
His Word (the Bible) has proven to be so credible in my life.


So now I'll hit 'publish'.

I hope you are having a good beginning of the week.


See you Tuesday, for some TRIVIA!
