Must be getting close to

Valentine's Day!

While cutting radishes for tonight's dinner. 
I found this heart!
Actually, it's two radishes that grew together.
Grand kids are coming over and I 
can't wait to show them this

she has hewn her seven pillars,

Clouds, Clouds and More Clouds

Tom and I were feeling a little 
"house bound" and decided to
take a day trip.
Blue skies, crisp air and gas in the tank,
we took off.

Tom found a destination...
Jack Pot, Nevada!

 Before you get any farther...
There are a lot of cloud pictures!!!!
Every few minutes,
 I was taking picture after picture of
some breath taking clouds.

We did stop at the
Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce 

This is home of the world famous,
base jumping,
Perrine Bridge.
click here for more info.

Yes, we did see one guy jump off,
 but not in time for me to get a picture.
They are quick!

This is the view from a look out platform.

Back on the road to Nevada 

Welcome to Jack Pot Nevada.
It's about one mile from the 
southern boarder of Idaho
Sneeze and you'll drive right 
through the city.
We did stop and play $2,
 at the penny slots.

Our winnings!
Time to get back on the road for home.
 The sky turned really dark.
 Snow storm!!
 When we got out of it,
this is what we came across.
A stop sign covered with snow.
The sunset was beautiful!

It was a long and beautiful 
road trip!

We arrived home in the dark,
happy to be home and with our winnings!


This is what the Lord says:

"Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast in their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness,
justices and righteousness on earth
for in these I delight.",
declares the Lord.

Jeremiah 9:23-24

What did you do on Saturday?
We went to the Park!

It was a cool but very nice afternoon.
We meet a few others there, also.
 We all gathered with the same 
motivation and passion.

This year's, March For Life!

 We started out,
 at Julia Davis Park
and marched to the State Capital.

Tom and I, plus a thousand others,
 took to the streets.
We were escorted with flashing lights
by the cities finest, the Boise police.

It was a short walk to the State Capital,
 which took about 10 minutes.
 Families with babies, teenagers, couples (young and old),
large groups, individuals, some singing, some just walking.
All of us were passionate and wanted our voices heard.
Heading in the same direction!

 Tom and I were at the head of the pack,
 so I took advantage of the moment.
I went up the steps and got this picture from the podium.

There were guest speakers ranging from 
religious clergy to State Congressional members.
The  Guest Speaker was Ramona Trevino. 
She was a former
 Director of Planned Parenthood 
in Sherman, Texas.
She had a compelling story of her 
conviction and conversion.

We had a great afternoon!
Tom and I have a passion for
those who can't speak up for themselves.


"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward."
 Psalms 127:3
