AVOIDING A SCUFFLE

“Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”

–Proverbs 3:6

My 2 dogs are the inspiration for this post, in that each morning they scuffle to see which one will win the affront and then they snuggle up for a nap…sounds humanly familiar!

This speaks of becoming alert for any unexpected happening.

Someone or something may be expecting you…to forgive immediately, stop what you are doing to help another or whatever the case may be to alter your plans.

Best to stay open and pliable to entertain new divine appointments.  In other words, if you can, let go and let God for the moment.

BREATHTAKING SAFARI

“If there were one more thing I could do, it would be to go on safari once again.”

–Karen Blixen, Out of Africa living in Kenya

For sure my bucket list includes going on a safari, but instead I saw a fantastic video and here are some outstanding photos to share with you.

Liking all these animals, there are many more rare species to be seen on a safari.  My best favorites are the giraffe and the zebra.

Pure animal magic, yes!

Happy Saturday!

AN EMBELLISHED RE-BLOG COOLING THROUGH THE RIVER

“Elephants are quite enough.”

–Agatha Christie

“Love this.  I dream of hugging an elephant.  His putting his trunk around me.  They are my emblem.  Elephants never forget.  They remember you.”  -Antoinette

Thank you, I love your comment and it brings me joy!

Isn’t this elephant monumental refreshing himself in the river!  Speaking of tropical, where I am today, the temperature has reached 95 degrees F.  I could easily cool my feet alongside him–haha.

Which leads me to think about preparing for a very hot summer.  What comes to mind is doing chores early in the day, eating lighter and healthier with more fruits and veggies, drinking more fruited water, getting back to walking 15 minutes daily, read a mystery thriller, go to bed earlier and enjoy the cooling down of night.  Luckily, I can count on the Mockingbirds to get me up real early by following their melodious symphony.

“Do what we can, summer will have its flies (and mosquitoes)

–Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.”

–John Lubbock

That’s my kind of a lovely summer.

Hope yours is fun and full of happiness.
