Let it Snow

My mother is now near us in Ohio, and hasn’t seen snow for 35 years. I hung a plaque on her door the other day, which said, “Let it Snow!” Very soon outside her window there were big flakes of snow!! The next day it dumped down some more snow! If anyone wants me to hang such a plaque on their door, just let me know! 🙂 Have a great weekend, one and all, with or without snow!

Death Comes

Today I ponder death, as we buried my cousin, Gerald. His death left an empty spot, but we all have pleasant memories we will cherish.

Our local cemetery is quite familiar, since my wife and I, walk here often at the break of day!

A family cemetery where my great, great, great, great-grandfather, Jacob Raber was buried south of Charm, Ohio. He emigrated to America from Germany in 1837.

Grief


I lost a cousin last week to an unexpected death! This farmstead is where our Grandfather had lived.  Privileged to be part of the Christ S. Miller family. Pray for us as we walk through our loss this week. Condolences to the immediate family. Gerald Miller, you will be missed.

This scene blessed me upon entering the village of Walnut Creek, in Holmes County, Ohio!

Countryside

I long for the countryside. That’s where I get my calm and tranquillity – from being able to come and find a spot of green. – Emilia Clarke

Pink Full Moon

We can thank the Native Americans for naming April’s Pink Moon as well as the other eleven full moons throughout the year. And because there were so many tribes across North America, full moons often have different names based on region. For example, the Pink Moon is also called Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, and Fish Moon. Moon names often have to do with activities and events that occur within the coinciding month.

The European Colonists adopted the Native American full moon names, and thankfully, the names were preserved and passed on.
