Red Sky in the Morning

Another few days have past and I have finally gotten back to the blog. This was the view that greeted me as I walked out my door a couple of
mornings ago! This glorious sight , along with our
recent warm weather filled me with a feeling of hope and promise of the spring to come. It was as if I had stepped out to see God's message to me "Welcome to a new day! I will be with you."
I stopped on the porch and enjoyed for a few moments the splendor.
As I paused, I could hear plain the old saying from my childhood Red Sky in the Morning, Sailor's Warning, Red Sky at night, Sailor's Delight. I have always loved being able to forecast the weather like the old timers by signs and cloud formations and smoke position from a fire. Normally this blazing red morning would send me to the NOAA site checking for the latest radar. But with this morning was a feeling of peace. What ever the day would bring, glorious or catastrophic, I was walking with One who knew the what, why and when of all the days events.
Take a second and enjoy the sunrise even if it is a red sky in the morning. It may be the manna you need for that day.
A side note: The power lines in the picture bothered me, but after the recent power outages I was thankful to see them up stretched taught and not on the ground!

Back in the Saddle again

Hello all!
Yes, I am still alive. After the "flu" and the ice storm, I feel human again. We never lost power which was a miracle. I can't imagine dealing with much more after being, as my dear friend Chet used to say, too sick to die. Thanks to my very talented children who fixed meals, and did their school work and my take charge husband, I am alive to post again.

I do have one note to all about medicine. If you think something is wrong....check it out! My doctor wrote a script for Cipro and put down the wrong dosage amount. After a couple of days I was feeling worse. This was my second round of antibiotics so I was convinced I was just going to be sick forever. I looked up the side effects of the medicine. I had everyone of them! Don't ignore those nagging little feelings!

Remember all the Kentucky soldiers working to help their neighbors through this disaster.
