I'll be playing with it a fair bit over the cottage days.
We're going to make a run to Point Pelee.
Hopefully the Monarchs will cooperate
and already be gathering for their migration to Mexico.

Because Patti is a little weary of all the unhappiness
being spread about out there!
Here are some shots from BGT's annual
It's the PARTY we throw for our community.
'Cause you really can't go wrong with face painting,

"Jesus called over a child, whom he stood in the middle of the room, and said, "I'm telling you, once and for all, that unless you return to square one and start over like children, you're not even going to get a look at the kingdom, let alone get in. Whoever becomes simple and elemental again, like this child, will rank high in God's kingdom. What's more, when you receive the childlike on my account, it's the same as receiving me." (Mark 18:2 – 5 MSG)
We had the annual Potma Family Reunion this past Saturday. Fun times … if you’re a kid that likes mud, like Justin. From the top of his head … to the tips of his toes … MUD! While the adults huddled under the protection of the picnic area roofs … hands wrapped around styrofoam cups of java … wishing the clouds would break and the sun would come out … Justin went about … having fun. Can ya hear his “vroom vroom” ? Nothing fazed him. Now the adults still managed to have their laughs and have their fun … but we didn’t embrace it in the same way some of the little ones did.
I need to learn to be more like Justin in the spiritual realm too. Sometimes the clouds come, open up and rain on my parade … the question is how do I respond to the rain? I need to go out and find some bright yellow rubber boots and matching rain slicker … I think that would help!

Lord I give You my heart,
Lord I give You my soul,
I live for You alone.
Every breath that I take,
Every moment I'm awake,
Lord have Your way in me
1995, Reuben Morgan, Hillsongs
They are powerful words
I watched a man live that
To his very last breath
Diagnosed in April with brain & lung cancer. Through the past three months there was no raging. There was peace, there was assurance that every day of his life was in God's hands. There was hope that in the midst of it all, the estranged relationship with his brothers would be restored. And there was joy in the realization of that hope this past week.
On Monday, Dwaine Veysey closed his eyes.
On Tuesday, he took his last breath ...
opened his eyes and saw Jesus.
It was a privelege to be there.
It was an honour to know him.
I'm going to miss him.

Have also been out and about along some local trails. The trillium's are in full force. And this weekend I even spotted the rarely found burgundy trillium.
And made it to the RBG for the tulips in the Rock Garden ... camera's battery frustratingly dying about an hour after arrival ... the one frustration of digital camera's! But I managed to get some nice shots ... both flora & fauna ... was startled by a rather larger Garter Snake sunning itself on one of the rocks ... it was at least 18" long and a good 1" thick! It slithered away quick enough.
And tomorrow it's the first MAJOR bike ride of the season ... Dundas Rail Trail here I come ... I'll probably be lounging again on Thursday to recoup! :)

I saw some early this week and I got my SIGN
I am no long NEARLY GIDDY ... it's full-fledged now.
So today at lunch I hit the wooded area behind the church.
Trilliums spread out far and wide.
I HEART SPRING!

For all the times I’ve been unfaithful
For every time I’ve been untrue
For every time I’ve been ungrateful
For all You’ve done and all You do
For when my pride has been unbroken
For when my soul has been unmoved
For all the praise I’ve left unspoken
When I owe everything to You
For when my heart has been unyielding
When my devotion went unproved
For all the days I’ve been unwilling
To take my cross and follow You
Please forgive me
Oi ... sometimes ... i can do all the "right" things when it comes to visible things and blow it so bad on the unseen things ...
Please Forgive Me (Travis Cottrell, David Moffitt & Sue C. Smith.) c. 2003 New Spring.

It's true. I am ... nearly giddy ... but not quite really giddy. SPRING is here. Now I'm a good Canadian. I can enjoy snow. If it doesn't come in a wave of storms that need to be constantly shovelled out of my driveway ... but SPRING ... I love it....
.... stuff is coming up ... bits of bright in amongst the dull vestiges of winter. That's why I'm only just "nearly" giddy ... the REALLY giddy will come when there is more bright than dull.
"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush" (Doug Larson, Olympic Runner)
While there may not be slush in my shoes ... there's still some brisk winds blowing ... but I won't wear the winter coat anymore ... I'd rather be cold than admit I still need it. It's spring ... I shouldn't need it anymore ... right?
