No More Dust

I got the house all nice and clean.
Now I need to iron a little.

Excuse My Dust

I will just have to do this, I have put it off to long. Murphy oil soap is my friend today. The Bennie will have to stay out of my way are I will clean him to. I am in a mad rush just look at my face and you can tell how schizophrenia (separation between thought and emotions) I am.

.....that in me ye might have peace (John 16:33 )
I have been through the valley of weeping,
The valley of sorrow and pain;
But the "God of all comfort" was with me,
At hand to uphold and sustain.
As the earth needs the clouds and the sunshine,
Our souls need both sorrow and joy;
So He places us oft in the furnace,
The doss from the gold to destroy,
Let the path be dreary or bright;
For we've proved that our God can give comfort,
Our God can give songs in the night.

Enlarge and see the big bird fishing and on the right man fishing in boat. The fog lifted as the sun came up.
Here are my fish

We fished played Monoply and read books and cooked out. It was so good to not have TV.

This picture should be last.
I was thinking my mind needs a work out, so I got this small puzzle.

It took me 3 days and if you go back to the top picture The Bennie is doing the sky .I gave up all of the sky is one color. So I guess his mind is in better shape then mine.

Sweet Smell

They worked fast to get the hay raked and in rolls before the storm. We got the fast moving rain after dark. The hay was safe and the field was clean and dotted with big rolls.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee ( Isa. 26:3 ) A happy life is not built up of tours abroad and pleasant holidays, but of little clumps of violets noticed by the roadside, hidden away almost so that only those can see them who have God's

peace and love in their hearts; in one long continuous chain of little joys, little whispers from the spiritual world, little gleams of sunshine on our daily walk.

It's that time of the year

This elephant Ear has been blooming, they are long yellow things.
Then they dry up

This is the inside looks like seeds.

Well it is hay cutting time again

It stirred up a batch of little wild cats. The house kind

The Bennie said he had been hearing something but was thinking baby pups. They ran deeper in the woods.

Trust Him

He----hangeth the earth upon nothing (Job 26:7)
Ere thou sleepest, gently lay
Every troubled thought away;
Put off worry and distress
As thou puttest off thy dress.
Drop thy burden and thy care
In the quiet arms of prayer---- Henry Van Dyke
