Welcome, family and friends, to our daily journal. Share it with your friends. It is a way of remembrance for us and a point of connection for you.

  • The big nine oh for today’s high. Two days from now the predicted high is sixty seven.
  • Looks like the temperature is rising ,(today anyway).

🎶Lord almighty

I feel my temperature rising
Higher higher
It’s burning through to my soul
Girl, girl, girl, girl,
You gonna set me on fire, mmh
My brain is flaming
I don’t know which way to go, yeah. 🎶 – Elvis Presley

  • Yeah, that’s how my mind, so easily, goes off into tangents. One of our former pastors referred to those as “chasing bunnys”.

  • This photo doesn’t do justice to the brightness which has chased the sliver of moon and one lone morning star (Venus) from the sky.
  • The ancient Greeks believed that were two objects, a morning star and an evening star. The morning star named Phosphoros, which means the bringer of light. The evening star was known as Hesperos, meaning star of the evening”. However, both of those “stars” are actually the planet Venus.
  • Were you aware that Venus was both the morning and evening star?
  • We hear so much now days about a manned settlement on Mars within the lifetime of people living today. But less less said about our twin planet, Venus.
  • If the sun were much dimmer in the past (as some believe), it may have been even more Earth’s twin with vast amounts of surface waters.
  • Imagine a system with two, truly habitable worlds. That my friends makes for good science fiction.

  • I made a breakfast casserole this morning. I had a butt-end of frozen ham that I shredded, and likewise a potato. A smallish scoop of pancake mix, three heaping spoons of oatmeal, four eggs, and enough water to make a batter. Baked at 350° for about 20 minutes. Topped it with sliced cheese.
  • Ella pronounced it, “Good.” So I declare it a successful food experiment.
  • Go, play with your food!

  • We are in week 2 of our study of “A Disciple’s Path”, which studies and practices the forms of prayer. So when the daily devotion from the “Upper Room” today spoke about taking time to really listen to God, it was in complete collaboration with the other study ŵe are doing.
  • “Peace be still”, in my case, means “shut up and listen!”

God bless and g‘day.
