Beauty Takes Many Forms
Here we see so much beauty:
The Sky
The Clouds
The Boardwalk
The Sand
The Ocean
The Ship on the horizon

But most importantly
we are reminded of
The beauty of an enduring, loving Relationship

Happy Holidays to all of you!

I think that most of the men who go to war for us,,, those who see combat,,, never come back.
I don't mean that they actually lose their lives (although many do),,, but the men who went don't come back.

It is a sacrifice which is unintended and unexpected by them and us.
A sacrifice which will never find a place to rest until Christ returns.
A sacrifice whose symptoms are most often treated with drugs,
but whose cause can only be calloused over
as they attempt to slog forward with their lives.

It is a sacrifice they and we can do nothing about, except to appreciate,
and hope,
and pray,
for their ability to carry on.


Linked here is some information that you might look upon as a gift from me to you.
The link anyway,,,, the info belongs to the linked websites.

If you happen to feel a little rumble,,,, maybe the dishes rattle just a little or something falls over for no apparent reason,,,, you might just have experienced a very small earthquake.

You can check it out after such occasions anyway.
Arizona has been getting a little shaking just today,,,, 7/11/2014.

Did you feel it?

And if your electronic devices have been acting a little funky, you might want to check out this link.
The peaks indicate activity that will affect electronic devices.  The x-ray chart is particularly telling.
Yesterday some television signals were disrupted (often called technical difficulties)
and the cell phone acted up a little.
Did you notice anything?

It is amazing to me how much the sun affects our daily lives,,,,
warmth (cow poots and lawnmowers notwithstanding) cold and otherwise.

I hope you enjoy the links.
