Too often we spend our time in the shadows begging God to move or change the mountain in front of us.. Blindly wandering.. Not seeing that it is us he is trying to change and move.. Not aware that the seeds are planted in us to overcome the shadows, the darkness, the burdens, the situation and the mountains.
Oblivious to the fact that all we need to do is water the seeds with faith and give them strength with our light.. Yes.. He’s not trying to change our mountain.
He’s trying to change us. 💚 (photo and poem by Kristi Parsons)

Sunday morning sunrise through my window

Beautiful early morning sky. A soft rainbow surrounds the rising sun as whispy clouds mingle with early flight contrails and slow moving cows munch on dew-ladened grass. #morningtalkswiththeCreator

The two “rainbow patches” of iridescent light on either side of the early morning sun look like “sun dogs”. Minutes later, a full arc formed over the sun.

What started off as “sundogs” ended up a beautiful rainbow around the early morning sun.

Oh dear, I almost let this day pass without remembering it would have been my sweet Granny Mae's 115th birthday. I loved her so much and she was the best grandmother a little girl could have. I have no doubts my mother got all her sweet, precious qualities from her mother, and I hope I've retained some of them and passed them on to my daughter. Happy Birthday in Heaven, Granny Mae!

Tiny, volcanic eruptions of cheese goodness in this Debbie G's Tomato Pie. I didn't have a pie pan so I used the cast iron skillet. If it tastes half as good as it looks, this may be my best tomato pie yet. #homegrownmaters #tomatopie #summerdelights
