“I am the ultimate authority.” Some folks truly believe this. “I, and I alone, am the ultimate authority. I make the rules for my own life and act accordingly.” The weather on Friday here in Colorado was awful! I checked the state highway cameras and saw it was low viability and the roads were snow … Continue reading I, and I alone
My last post had stinging in it. (See Scorpions.) This one does to, of a different nature. So it's time once again for another tale from the ranch! Back in 2012, we were working on putting in a french drain for one of our springs on the ranch. Along the backside of the hill where … Continue reading Stinging nettles
Rest easy, dear readers, this is NOT another tale from the ranch! But it does involve scorpions! (So reader discretion is advised.) Scorpions are predatory arachnids. (ie: spiders!) They have eight legs, and are easily recognized by a pair of grasping pincers and a narrow, segmented tail, often carried in a characteristic forward curve over … Continue reading Scorpions
How did I not see that?
I love them! I absolutely love them! Those “aha” moments that make you wonder how you did not see that before. You know, like chocolate is scrumptious! Like it doesn't matter that it is 16 degrees below zero, ice cream is still a yummy, satisfying snack! Like shoveling snow is a great workout! Well, not … Continue reading How did I not see that?
I always feel sorry for that poor guy named Will. You know, when in the movies, the person in charge says, “Fire at will!” Fire at will is a command given to allow the troops to fire when they are ready. They use their discretion and choose their targets. It gives the soldier a greater … Continue reading Pink Slip
I'm sure you can relate. You're having one of “those” days. Everything is coming at you from every angle, at the exact same time, and you are just trying to breathe. Well I had one of those days this past Wednesday. I decided I needed a break, and logged onto WordPress to read some posts … Continue reading What?!
Things I’m grateful for
A fellow reader suggested I re-post this today. So I am. Happy Thanksgiving! I try to count my blessings with regularity. It takes my mind off the negative and focuses on what positive things I do have in my life. I have been taking it to a new level lately by witnessing what I am … Continue reading Things I’m grateful for
With the holiday season upon us, home means different things to different people. For some, it is family gathering and reconnecting with loved ones. For others, it is being patient with family members who always knows how to push your buttons. Home really struck home with me this past Wednesday. I woke up thinking about … Continue reading Struck home
I normally write a post each weekend. This last weekend I had nothing. No inspiration from the Holy Spirit, just nothing. It was the week after the last filing deadline for the 2021 tax season, and I was just beat. God knew I needed to take some time off. So I did. I read and … Continue reading Goodness
Grains of sand
Any of you who have read my posts for a bit know I like math and science. I like to see how things work and add up. So after reading a couple of things in the Bible, I got curious. I have a little 3 minute hourglass that I use when doing my stretching exercises. … Continue reading Grains of sand
