August Edition: Living in the Moment

What:  this last installment of our Living in the Moment blog circle (thank you, Jude, for the inspiration!).
Where: the boonies of ID or MT (or both) …
Why: to fish (when in Rome …)
Who: my dudes and some of my favorite in-laws …
When: the last week of summer
‘Twas a perfectly gorgeous day.  Not hot, not cold.  The dirt road in (from Idaho) was long.  The dirt road out (in Montana) was a little shorter.  The stream/river/creek was crisp, shallow, and quickly flowing.  The lunch was yummy.  The bees/bugs were numerous.  The fish … were not.  The company was very, VERY good.

Feel free to click on thru our final Living in the Moment loop.  Up next is Robyn sharing some lovely last bits of summer ...

Ch-ch-ch-changes ..

I'm usually pretty change averse.  But, this change I didn't mind too much.  I overhauled my website.  Get this:  it actually plays nicely with iThingy devices now.  I have a few more i's to dot and t's to cross and galleries to add and kinks to work out, but I'm pretty pleased with the overall aesthetic.

I'm thinking that this new picture from our recent Joshua Tree adventure will need to find its way into the site ...

The LORD determines the number of the stars
and calls them each by name.
Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
His understanding has no limit.
Psalm 147:4-5

When I consider Thy heavens …

O LORD, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth,
You have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!
From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength,
Because of Your adversaries,
To silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
What is man, that You take thought of him?
And the son of man, that You take thought of him?
Yet You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And crown him with glory and majesty!
You made him to rule over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All flocks and herds,
And also the animals of the wild,
The birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord,
How majestic is Thy name in all the earth!
