Life Can Bite

You know, sometimes life just bites you back.

As you, my wonderful readers have noticed, my poor blog is lacking in regularity. Ha, I think that's a good word for it! :P Anyway, I'm going to take a break for a bit longer. My heart and mind are "occupied" with family situations. Teehee...to continue on the theme.

I won't be too long, I promise. 

My intention is to come back with a completely new idea and maybe, if my son can find some time, a new website.

So please don't think too harsh of me. I will try to visit your sites when I can. "I love ya man."

"I've told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I've conquered the world." John 16:33 (MS)

(Boy I sure hope I can come up with something new after all this.....uh oh....)

Do Ya'll Ever Wonder?

Seriously now, how many lemurs does it take to hold up a wall? Yes, this picture is the right way.
How come sometimes, the little guy get the last "foot" in?
And how is it that all the stripes are in perfect lines and not zig-zaggedly crooked, like when I try to draw a straight line?
And will anyone ever answer that knocking?

Well, the only answer I do know is the first one. DUH! Five, unless that is one in front that I can't see very well, and then it is six. Uh...oh well.

 Good grief, well this I do know:

"God spoke: 'Earth, generate life! Every sort and kind: cattle and reptiles and wild animals--all kinds.' And there it was; wild animals of every kind, cattle of all kinds, every sort of reptile and bug. God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:24-25

I'm satisfied enough with that answer. (Except for the bug part.)

Big Mean Guy

While at the zoo this year, we came across this guy. Whoa! Big and hairy and mean-looking. Boy, I'd hate to run into him in the jungle or anywhere for that matter.

I enlarged this second picture of him just to see his face better.

And look.

Check out his head. Ouch. Must've been a fight with the other orangutan. When I enlarge even more, I can see his eyes, too. Not so ferocious now.

Made me think about others around us. Most of them have hurts we don't see because we don't/can't get close. And I know I never think about them hurting.

"God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." 1 Samuel 16:7

Lord, give me eyes to see beyond the outward appearance. Make me sensitive to others.
