As I was hurrying through the dark parking lot to go into the grocery store, I pulled my coat tight around me as it was chilly and rainy. All of a sudden a bright warm feeling entered my heart. There in the midst of it all I heard the sweet voice of a little child singing. Seemingly unaware of the weather, she waited patiently for her mom to load groceries into the car, as she sang a little melody all her own. 🙂 I had to smile. A good reminder to be joyful in all circumstances! 🙂
“Keep your heart open to dreams. For as long as there’s a dream, there is hope, and as long as there is hope, there is joy in living.”
The sun popped out for just a few minutes–I stepped outside to snap a picture–the result was this photo that looked like the shape of Oregon! (I did not crop this photo into this shape–it just happened because of the area where I was standing when I took the photo)
I figured this unusual photo deserved a poem to be written for it! 🙂
Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Malachi 3:16-17 KJV

Marilyn is my grand-daughter’s dog. When the big tree in the family’s backyard was knocked down by storms this winter Marilyn chose to run up to the end of the remaining stump and stand as if on guard!
(Instead of being “King of the Hill” she is “Queen of the Tree”! 🙂
She seems to mimic her daddy, Jack, whom we call “The Sentry or Guard Dog”
