“Oh, hi! Good morning! I was wondering if I could order a milks?”
“Could we interest you in the Special of the Day? Today’s Special is the Carrot Purée. It is a waterish composition of locally grown garden fresh carrots?”
“Um… That looks kind of disgusting. Do you know if it has any texture?”
“We’ll be right back with a warm towel and lemon, ma’am.”
“Just bring me a burp rag and don’t forget my milks!!!!”
Nora did let me get a little taste of carrots on her mouth! It wasn’t exactly a spoonful but at least it was something! She tolerated the spoon at a side angle AND the little bit of carrots! There was some wincing and fussing associated, but no gags! We’ve had two more consecutive pleasurable carrot dining experiences since then (also just little tastes). I think we’re making progress!
If you look closely (above) you can see the big full moon just between the trees. I was awestruck by the beauty of this scene and wondered if anyone else appreciated it so much as I did in that moment while I was waiting for the ferry back home. Three birds way off in the distance glided back and forth past the moon as if this whole picture was hand-painted just for me in that moment. So personal it was that my phone camera could barely discern the evanescence of the moon let alone the three soaring specks.
And so ends another day.
So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.
(Ecclesiastes 8:15 NIV)
I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is no other.
(Isaiah 45:5, 6 NIV)
Here are a couple of award winning kids! So proud!
“Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.”
(Psalms 46:10 NLT)
