I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “raining cats and dogs,” haven’t you? 

On a recent evening when shooting a sunset, this large flock (also called a kit or loft) of pigeons began circling the area, looking for a place to spend the night, I suppose. I’m just glad they didn’t find our house! 


Saturday, the rain came, and stayed. Though it rendered the day dark and dreary, a visit to the fabric store added a bolt of color that brightened my day.

Six-word Friday + River of Stones, Jan.13

The prompt for this week’s Six Word Friday is Lost and Found. These words are found in one of my all-time favorite hymns.
By John Newton–lyrics found here:

This is my six-word adaptation:

Words from the song, “Amazing Grace.”
Jesus saved a wretch like me.
I was lost; now I’m found,
Was blind, but now I see.
Grace brought me safe thus far,
And Grace will lead me home.

For today’s small stone, the thing I am mindfully pondering is Grace. Not a tangible thing to be seen with the eye, but its evidence on a countenance may be discerned. It may go unnoticed altogether, overlooked. But when experienced, praise surely will burst forth.
