Psalm 98:4

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth:  make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

COULD YOU? WOULD YOU?

If you could go back to a slower, simpler time in your life, would you do it?    Not as many places to go, not as many things to do…

You would have to give up who you are today and go back to the exact same person that you were then.   Would that be a good thing?

Sometimes we look back and only see the what we want to see.

But our memories can sometimes be a little distorted………

…..which is o.k…..it’s nice to romanticize the past sometimes.  What’s wrong with having good memories?

As long as we realize that life can’t ever stay the same, it always changes and it’s good to outgrow ourselves.  I don’t know who said it, but my favorite quote this week is:  “Thank you God, that I’m not who I almost was.”

HOW DO I HATE THEE……………

Well, if you are a grasshopper from SW Kansas–I can’t even begin to tell you all the ways that I hate you (Thee).

Wipe that stupid look off your face.

Once again, you have deprived me of my delicious Rhubarb.  You have eaten my chives, stripped the salvia, yarrow and Russian sage bare.  You have eaten our crops and our trees.  You have robbed me of my gardening joy.

                Above are sedum and globe thistle that you have defiled.

 What revenge do I reap upon you and your evil brethren?  Early in the morning I catch you and put you in a coffee cup.  I shake it vigorously several times to give you a headache.  Sorry, not sorry.  Then, after that……(cue horror music)………

 …………I feed you to my quail!!!!  How I enjoy watching you disappear down their little gullets.   Sweet revenge.

Skip to my Loo.

This now brings us to the moral of the story:  What is a problem for one, is nothing but juicy, goodness for another.
