Lots of four-leggeds and I crossed paths this past week or so, all with their own paces, their own lessons. I walked and stood and sat with them—asking, learning. Reflecting on the One who made them.

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you . . . In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”

—Job 12:7, 10

And . . .

I drew winners for this week’s GIVEAWAY of six books: Linda MacKillop’s The Forgotten Life of Eva Gordon and my book Sugar Birds! If you’d like to be included in these regular giveaways, just drop me a note HERE, and I’ll subscribe you. Each Saturday, I write a short, personal letter, announce any giveaway winners, and attach links to this blog so you can see the week’s pics.

It’s old school correspondence, in letters not found anywhere online. You can reply to them, and I’ll always write back.


I’d love to hear what YOU ask . . . or learn . . . or remember as you look at these:


“Once you were like sheep who wandered away. But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the Guardian of your souls.”

—1 Peter 2:25


At our campsite, day and night—doing stuff. 😳

“For you know quite well that the day of the Lord’s return will come unexpectedly, like a thief in the night.”

—1 Thessalonians 5:2



“‘And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.’ And it was so.”

—Genesis 1:30


Winter wheat and Daisy.

“You prepare their grain, for thus You prepare the earth.
You water its furrows abundantly,
You settle its ridges,
You soften it with showers,
You bless its growth.”
—Psalm 65:9-10


Out for breakfast?


Thanks for stopping by, friends. So glad you’re here.
