A Woodman of the World's Tombstone

Far out on the eastern plains, in the middle of seemingly nowhere, this grave and tombstone are carefully kept. Cattle graze around this site, but a walkway is mowed to it and it has a protective barrier around it. I've heard there used to be a lot of pine trees out there. So, he must have been a good woodman indeed.

I wonder what these words mean. Well, I just googled and found this interesting link that explains cemeteries.wordpress.com/category/woodmen/

Colorado Sunset in the Rain and Rainbow

Colorado Stormy Sunset with Rainbow

What a crazy night we had weatherwise last night! Lightening started fires out on the plains on one side of us and incredible tornadoes touched down on the other side of us. We had beneficial rain, a lot of lightening and a gorgeous double rainbow. The news showed incredible images of an AWE inspiring HUGE tornado right behind a white house. It was clear if the tornado touched that house it would be shredded. Yet, a miracle happened and not a shingle was missing from that house. In fact, as far as I know, even though the tornado touched down in popular Parker, not one single person or property was injured or harmed. For me, it was a visual experience of how AWESOMELY POWERFUL God is. Because as terrifying as the tornado images are, God is MORE powerful than that!! Wow. Check out this amazing footage captured by Sky9 for the news. http://www.9news.com/news/article.aspx?storyid=98187&catid=339 There is an article to read, but check out the video on the right side. (Ignore the commercial at the beginning.) The people in that white house prayed and God heard them and saved them and their home, not once, but TWICE.

God's Amazing Animals Duck, Dog, Cat, Crow

Cute Duck loves Dog video

This Crow Adopts a Kitten video reminds me of that guy in the Bible who was fed by crows.

Chickens in the Dust Epic Feature

Okay. I'm honing my video skills with this enchanting movie clip of my chickens who look like they are dying, but in reality are just taking a chicken dust bath. LOL I couldn't get closer because they got up and left. Anyone have any tips on clipping off sides of each movie picture? I'd love to make this a closer up version. Can that only be done at the time of filming? I know this is terrible. I apologize for wasting 90 seconds of your life. :)

So, I'm taking pictures of the flocks of ravens or crows, I don't know what they are . . . big black birds congregating by the hundreds here, when I notice a coyote. I got a few pics of him from far away, so they are a bit blurry. I also caught a picture of our spring that is full after all our rain and has some pretty flowers. I did catch a video and hopefully, recorded the frog songs eminating from the spring that I can upload later. It's so weird how out here on the high desert plains of Colorado, frogs come out and are really loud after rains.

Here's what it looks like here today! After record breaking days of near 100 throughout July, God sure changed things up. We had a record breaking low temp today for the Highest temp of the day. That was hard to say. The horses were galloping around our house.

Cyber Obituaries LOL

I have to share this blog post from http://stoneycharms.etsy.com/ She put this so well, it really made me laugh! http://stoneycharms.blogspot.com/2008/08/new-pretties.html I have been buried in my new Photoshop software my husband got for me. God bless him! I've been able to update many of my formerly grey photos and bring some life into my shop. For some reason, I am not able to move to the next line here on my blog post. Sorry about the run on. I added this drawing I created to my shop along with a few other new things. I was inspired by the 15th Chapter of Luke. I hope everyone is having a great day/night today/tonight.

Big sky, little land.

I've gotten a bit more work done on the bay roan mustang wooliture of my mustang "Rocket". He still needs a mane, many, many more roan speckles, front leg work, rear leg work and a tail. And then he'll be all done! I'm really enjoying seeing him come together. Though it kills me how slow it is! That is the tortuous pain of a needlefelt artist.

Videos of Love for You

I was so profoundly touched by these videos yesterday that I added them to my YouTube Playlist.

The first one reminds me of Amos 8:11 and while the Black Eyed Peas are asking "Where is the Love?" the video shows that they know. "If you never know Truth, then you'll never know Love" and "must keep the faith alive". This video makes me love all those searchers out there so much. How can people who love, look around and not be a bit down?

The second one is a video my sister made right after she was diagnosed with invasive cancer. She felt she would battle the negativity by putting positive energy into the world through a video she created. Her video won the Yahoo Veddy award that year and was on the front page. My sister is okay now, also. I just love how she made it black and white and with the first hug everyone turns to color. And how the children RUN with wide open arms into the hugs, while the adults seem so closed off and try to bustle by, but after their hug, they are smiling and their whole energy opens up.

The third one is very powerful. It starts a bit slow, then gets very intense in the middle (there is cutting and suicidal thoughts, just to prepare you) but the end is SO worth waiting for. I have watched this so many times and never fail to have tears and chills. It's only 5 minutes long, but it is 5 minutes of pure Power in a message.

I hope these videos bless you, too. I will provide a permanent link to this playlist on the sidebar.

God loves you. God bless you wherever you are.

Ohhhh. Black Eyed Peas requested video embeds be disabled. So I will share the link here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-KxLtol9yc . I hope you get a chance to see this intense video.

Here's my sister's video "Free Hugs in Hollywood!"

and here is Lifehouse's Everything Drama
