On the Road Again

Our theme song, for the next two weeks: Willie Nelson’s On the Road Again.

🎶 “One, two, a one, two, three, four—

On the road again
Just can’t wait to get on the road again . . .
Goin’ places that I’ve never been
Seein’ things that I may never see again . . .
makin’ music with my friends . . .” 🎶

Eastern Oregon, this trip, with a few other couples and a fourteen-week-old puppy.

I won’t be writing much, if at all, but will send pics. You’ll find the first few below.

Meanwhile, this week’s winner in the third and final week of the SUGAR BIRDS GIVEAWAY is TRACY WIRICK! Congratulations, Tracy! Please send me your mailing address, and I’ll ship a copy of the book to you as soon as we get home.

May God hold you all close this week, wherever you ramble.

House sitters in place.

Big dogs keeping them company.

At the headwaters of Oregon’s Metolius River, with a baby so wiggly only her leash makes most of the pics.. 😆


Dandelion Daisy . . . over 20 pounds already!


TBs—Throwbacks—from three years ago:


When there’s a crease in the chrysalis.

“For we know that all creation has been groaning . . .“

—Romans 8:22


Baby blanket.

“When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.”

—1 Corinthians 13:11 NLT


A rainy day visit from a female Anna’s Hummingbird, right outside my study window. I was slogging through revisions.

I closed my computer to watch—and decided to copy her.

“Drink deeply of God’s Spirit . . . . Sing and offer praise in your hearts to the Lord.”

—Ephesians 5:19 WNT


Thanks for traveling with me, friends. So glad you’re here!

Watching Nature, Seeing Life: Through His Creation, God Speaks.

  2. So love your hummingbird picture and reference from Ephesians 5:19.
    When I see a hummingbird get deep into the flower for its nourishment I see myself needing to get deep into God’s Word for spiritual nourishment! Thank you for your inspiration!
