Leaky Roof Makes Picture

In my wanderings around the formerly-abandoned and now-being-cleaned-up church across the street, I found where a leaky roof had dripped, then started to dry.

I don't just see a messy puddle. I see a beautiful bird kissing a heart.
What do you see?

Hold Your Children To Your Heart ...

I just got a phone call from a friend from Gleaners.
She told me about my friend Trish.
She lost her son last week.
He took a pill someone at school had given him to "help him sleep".
He told her he was going to take a nap - and never woke up.

He was only 17.

My heart goes out to Trish and her family.
I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to lose a child.

Please hold this family in your prayers today.
And hold your children close to your heart.

Slow Down!

I couldn't help but stop and get this picture.
Looks like someone needed a little extra encouragement ...
to SLOW down!

I Heart My Coffee ...

When I was in the hospital after my stroke, I woke up the next day with a horrid headache.
This concerned my doctors, who treated me to yet another round of tests - blood tests, CAT scan, MRI, ultrasound ... until it dawned on me that I HADN'T HAD MY COFFEE YET.
This so galvanized the nursing staff that they pulled out their coffee maker, made a fresh pot, and came into my room - a full cup of coffee in each hand. Bye bye headache - Hello Room Service! :=}

So ... now you know ... I love my coffee.

I was at the grocery store when I spied a fellow coffee addict.
These are just a couple of the DB stickers that adorned this little car - there were at least 5. Of course my favorite one combined my two loves - coffee AND heart!

The Tree Won

I was walking down our curvy country road, when I saw the aftermath of a car-versus-tree.
The yellow sign in the rear window said not to call 911 - the accident had actually happened around Christmas.

Then I had a Mr. Toad moment and was compelled to climb down the hill and take a closer look at the wreckage.

There wasn't much left of the Mazda, just a bunch of scrap metal reflecting the beauty of the forest back at me.

When I zoomed in to get a better look ... I even found a heart!
Therefore, this qualifies as both a "Weekend Reflection",
and a "Guest Heart Thursday"!!!

I hope the person/s involved in this accident are okay - nothing has been in the newspaper so I'm thinking this was a very expensive lesson that the tree ALWAYS wins - and given the empty case of beer on the back seat ... DON'T drive after drinking. PLEASE.
