“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
I really need to go back and read this book. I'm finding new meaning in a story this isn't new.
I love using Picmonkey to play with my photos. Their site has been in summerlicious mode and I am just not ready to face it changing to something else.
My Fitbit has been leading me off on adventures every day and I am breathing in all the summer I can.
Monarchs just dance from flower to flower in this garden. I could stand and watch for long periods of time. I even saw a hummingbird hovering in the center part.
I'm discovering nature is such a good teacher. As I watched the ornamental grass blowing in the wind I noticed right in the middle of it two purple flowers managing to use the grass to wrap around so they could reach the sunlight and bloom.
The leaves tell a bit of a changing story as some reds fill in amongst the green.
Just across from my path is the Red river which is really brown and muddy in color. I love how the trees have grown up around it, framing it in this way.
As I walked down near the river a bit, I stumbled across this home made swing.
After Rick, and both boys got through with a nasty summer cold, it seems to have finally gripped me. I've been laying low and seem to have the worst of it behind me.
Rick leaves for Idaho for a week on Sunday.
Monday I will have my PET scan to gain a clearer picture of what the heck my cancer has been up to, from my chest down.
I'd be so honored to have your prayers for Monday, and for me to be able to face whatever news awaits me.
