A couple of years ago my wife had this portrait of Lucy painted and gave it to me as a birthday present. It is incredible and you can see the soul of the pup in the eyes. Lucy will be four years old in December and she is the source of endless joy around the house.
Happy Fall Y’all!!!
Recently my wife went into Autumn decorating mode and filled the house with vignettes of fall color. Here are a few examples.
If you think these are good, just wait until she puts her Santa’s helper hat on for Christmas. Have a blessed week.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
The theme this week at 4M is songs honoring National Neighbor Day or Sons Day. I will skip the obvious Mr. Rogers, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” and move on to other subjects. I am an only child so I wouldn’t know anything about being the Seventh Son.
While “son” is not in the title, a brother is a son. The lyrics speak to where we would do well to be as a nation, thinking more of one another than ourselves. My fellow man…”He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother.”
I remarked that I am an only child…an only son. I know that my parents loved me with a special love because I was their only offspring. My mother wrote letters to congressmen, pleading not to send me to Vietnam because I was her only blood relative. It was to no avail and I served my country in Southeast Asia. I can only imagine the agony that God Himself suffered when His only Son was crucified by an angry mob, thinking they had put an end to the teachings of Christ. But on the third day, the stone rolled back from the tomb and God the Father spoke to His Son and said, “Arise My Love”.
