There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.
I need to get a grip. Being concerned over what others think of me is crippling. Last words of advice I heard from one camp were these: Don't let them run over you. Last words of advice from another camp: Give in as much as you can. Ai yi yi...Lord, I need Your help here.
How I would love to have the freedom to tell some disgruntled buttercups to take a flying leap in a rolling doughnut. Now this definitely is a matter for prayer! Oh dear, it has come to that. ☺
So, dear friend, I am having some trouble with focus. Blogging will be sporadic at best as I work to get John's estate cleared. It is not as simple as it might have been, but I can see that God had a plan all the same.
In the meantime, I wish that I were at the lake! Leaving you with some photos taken by other folks. Mine (above) is nothing to cheer about. ☺
My daughter now works in a coastal town so she sees many wonderful scenes on her way to work. ↑
some level playing field...not!
My son's family suffered through a very hot week at the lake. There's no electricity there so not even a fan to help with a breeze. I'd have lived in the lake, but they decided to visit a chocolate factory. (the five photos above) They are home now; I find myself wondering if they have a chocolate for me. Hahahahaha...
I'm leaving you with a picture of some of John's great-grandgirlies searching for loons on the pond a few nights ago.
Looks as if they found at least one!
Loons in New Brunswick
This post was written before the tragic events of the weekend had unfolded...Turkey, Baton Rouge, and not so long ago Nice, France. My concern is very real. I am praying. I believe that you are, too.
