If you look closely....you will see that the new chick is definitely different (and better looking) than Barbie was.
What a beautiful picture. It's now my wallpaper.
How lovely the colors of fall reflection across a lake.
From Seed of Past, Blooms the Future
By Skip Watt
We are all the forefathers of a still unborn generation to come,
for in retrospect, we now look gratefully to those who came before us,
as we consider them the pioneers of our daily lives from years ago,
likewise I suppose, they thought the same of generations before them .
It is no different those years ago, nor in the future years to come,
for tomorrows adventures will be truly yesterdays histories today,
and we will all be instrumental in the creation of all those memories ,
as we simply live our lives without giving second thought of it.
We must strive to live exemplary examples of truly faithful friendships,
and in the end, what else might we pride the existence of ourselves,
for you may amass a multitude of monetary wealth and prestige,
but when our time here has ended, no amount of wealth will shine,
yet good deeds and true friendships will light the darkest of nights.
live doing good toward another and enrich their lives by being a friend,
learn from another, that we may then pass this knowledge to all in need,
help one in need, for as a life is saved, it is destined to reflect on another,
enjoy the friendship of those near you and share life as a luxurious party,
give freely, a love you feel, for the love of another may hang in the balance.
Go forth with joy and plant seeds of happiness in the lives God created,
for as sunshine begins as a glow upon the distant horizon each morning,
so too will the growth of happiness take over the darkness in those lives,
and the happiness that blooms, so enriches the life of the gardener as well.
Vicki and I are quite upset and praying constantly for a very dear friend and neighbor of ours who is lying in a medically induced coma after a quadruple bypass surgery on Monday and doesn't seem to be doing very well. The surgery took an extremely long 8 hours to perform and the coma is being used to allow his body to recover from the trauma of the surgery before the patient is awakened. He is one of the first people we met when we moved here and he has given of himself on many occasions and has offered anything he owns to Vicki and I if we needed it. He is a very quiet, decent and generous person and we wish the very best for him and Joan, his better half.
