{Missouri} Fireworks

Independence Day happened while I was visiting family in Missouri. Their neighbors down the street put on an amazing fireworks show for everyone! It was insane and cool … and not very buggy.

With Labor Day coming up, it seemed like the perfect time to post these. Another holiday to celebrate with crazy fun things!

Although, perhaps not fireworks so close and so bright a person could read outside so late in the night.

{Missouri} Fish

While on vacation to Missouri, J3 took me to his favorite creek to do some fishing. No fish were caught that day, but we had some laughs and time spent together.

Many pets are part of life in Missouri, including four tanks of fish. This shy guy seemed to warm up to me sitting in front of his tank and came out, swimming back and forth.

Thinking of Cold Days

I took this one the coldest weekend of the year while staying at a friend’s cabin. It was something like 40 below, not counting the wind. Gah! It was so cold I only stayed out for a couple of minutes.

{Springbrook} Paths of Righteousness

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
