Okay, were these folks confused? If the fire hydrant goes off, there's a life preserver on a rope to save us?

Or this~
Wait, sir, you are walking too fast! Can't you read?

Ah the lovely Tampa Bay area.

"If you don't know what you're doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You'll get his help, and won't be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought." James 1:5-6 (MS)

So many times confusion hits me like these signs. I'm so glad the Master of Wisdom is able to straighten me out.

Look what I won!

Kathy sent me this adorable set of children's books.

I won them. She had the most difficult contest, and yes, me, I was the winner. Or rather one of two winners. And the contest...wasn't that difficult. In fact, it was just a guessing contest.

Okay, so I have a good guesser. Kathy asked, "How old is my cat?" I just happened to get close. HEY, don't knock it. Look what can happen if you are even close. :P

I will love reading them to my grand kids and anyone else who will listen. Thank you Kathy!

"This is how much God loved the world; He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why; so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life." John 3:16 (MS)

I'm happy I don't have to depend on my guesser to get into heaven. I can know for sure, 'cause I don't think just "getting close" will work.

Leafy Sea Dragons

This delicate yellow dragon won't scare anybody. In fact they have to hide from us!

Their unusual leaf-shaped appendages and color make them a target for collectors.

These cousins of the sea horse live off the southern and eastern coast of Australia. Swimming is not their forte so they roll with the currents. When they do swim, it's slow and awkward. God gave them protection by hiding them seaweed and kelp.

I read they eat mysids, which is sea lice. Yuk, I like the word mysids better.

The Florida Aquarium in Tampa housed these beauties.

"For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock." Psalms 27:5

O Lord, you know sometimes I'm a rollin' with the currents and find it hard to swim. Thank you, You gave me a tabernacle, tent and rock instead of seaweed.

Have You Seen This 3 D Printer?

Can you believe that? Our technology is amazing. Say...what if you put diamonds, or.....? :)

What will they come up with next? If you could invent/create anything, what would it be?

"It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands, and I ordained all their host." Isaiah 45:12

We are pretty smart, but so far, no one has been able to create something from nothing. I kind'a like it that way. Thank you, Father.

Happy Freedom Day!

Whether you do fireworks
Or grill
Or go to a game

Or however you spend your day,

Remember, freedom comes with a price and only continues with vigilance.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." Psalms 33:12

Lord may I be thankful and watchful to protect the liberties You've given me and our country.
