Wabbit Watching

My Rogue and I have been walking the Riverfront Trail, a joint project of the city park system and The Washington Rotary Club.  It is a much loved, scenic path that winds along the Missouri River as it passes by Washington’s Historic Downtown Area. We have groaned and complained upon arising each day until we […]


We’ve Each A Place

By what authority proclaimed, by what process or fair measure? Removing living things deemed irritants…are they not also treasures? Even seedlings have intrinsic beauty, some small redeeming grace.

Equally Yoked

It was many years into my practicing being a Protestant that I came to finally hear (or perhaps actually understand) the biblical concept “equally yoked”. The expression did indeed explain a multitude of current dilemmas that I’d been unable to articulate for many months.  Depression had set in and some days, I wouldn’t have known […]
