Betty’s AOTD Challenge: December 24, 2019

Squirrel 5Birds & BayI took both of these photographs yesterday (December 23, 2019). The squirrel was in my very front yard. The birds were at Hillsmere Beach. With the second shot, I just got lucky. I was taking pictures of the water of the mighty Chesapeake. When I got home and downloaded everything from the day onto my crummy Dell laptop, this picture caught my eye. I had to crop it down quite a bit. This is what was left! I call episodes like that “God moments.” That is when I can see God working in my life in ways that are tangible. I am linking this post to Betty Louise’s Animal of the Day challenge, December 9, 2019.

Ragtag Daily Prompt, Candle

Babies 1Babies 2Whenever a member of the royal family died, the Archbishop would light a candle. King GarGar wept openly, while Queen Pirouette maintained a stoical blank expression on her face. After lighting the candle, the Archbishop proceeded to say a Mass for the peaceful repose of the late Prince GarGar, heir to the throne and only son of the King and Queen.

Nothing can prepare one for this kind of grief, thought Pirouette. In her sorrow, she could not even summon a prayer to her lips. At this point, she was prepared to allow the Archbishop to pray on her behalf.

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas!

Well, tomorrow is the big day. Are you ready?

Decorations 3 a

For every single holiday, these folks go all out. Even Valentine’s Day will find their yard chock-full of decorations. I wonder where they store all that stuff. They must have a storage unit of some kind.
