Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

morning joy

Early morning found me lounging with a cuppa coffee in the great outdoors. So many leaves had fallen, but not all, not yet. From behind my left shoulder a loud squawking was headed my way. Up high I laughed when I saw the birds hop-scotching across empty limbs. I wasn't sure where they were headed, or what kind of birds they were. When they flew, they all flew together, like a giant wave or a large black wing across the sky. Something so simple as watching those birds gave me a moment of joy. Another cup would be nice; anyone else? What brings you joy?


  1. Dear Dixie,
    Lovely post. I get pleasure from simple things like this, too. Just looking at the sky, with its brilliant sun sets, despite the very cold weather here in England, makes me realise how small I am, and how big and beautiful the world is. Sounds corny, I know, but there you go.
    Thanks, Dixie. And another lovely picture, too.
    With Very Best Wishes,

  2. Dear David,
    Such a lovely comment, and thank you for noting the photo. If I'd turned the flash off of the, I might have more birds to look at!!

    I don't thinks it sounds corny. Too many people are missing some great stuff outside of their windows and doors.

    Hope all is well with you,

  3. What brings me joy is being out with nature and like you taking those lovely picture of God's creation, a way of appreciating His works of wonders.


  4. Thank you, Paul. I really enjoy both of your blogs; your art work and the photography are inspiring to me.

    I'm especially grateful that you choose to share what you've been gifted!

    In peace and kindness,
