A Bird in La La Land

I made a mistake in my post last night (early this morning) about the roses. I started out merging two separate flowers, but it was actually an overlay of the same rose that I ended up doing. Not that it matters, but I realized that this morning. They just look different because of the overlay effect. This is another crazy bird that I saw in the river of Los Angeles, or as Marcus calls it; “La La Land”. 😉 I’m definitely in a colorful mood lately.

I’ll share those soon. To top it off, I picked up my grandson from school and we got to have some laughs together. Life is good!

The Big Picture

So, I was reminded of something while reading a fellow blogger’s post (thank you Rob) this morning. It’s something that actually helped me a great deal not too long ago… Looking at the BIG picture. Being new to Christianity, and fairly new in the program—the first things I had to face were my defects. My wrong thinking. My sinfulness. I had learned, early in life, how to dodge my fears by becoming someone that I was not. You know…a people-pleaser. Give them what they want. Tell them what they want to hear. Be who THEY want you to be. The problem here is that now I’m not even sure who THEY were. My peers when I was young? Well, that’s not what I want to dwell on. I’m getting sidetracked. The point is that once I looked in the mirror and faced the bad head on, I lost complete sight of all the positives. I almost couldn’t remember the good things I’d done in life. That might be why a lot of my posts are about my memories. I’m …
