Antelope Valley Poppy Fields

Over the past weekend Mimi, Ryan, Emily and I went to the poppy fields that are located not far from our house.  Here are a few of the photos from our trip.  It was a gorgeous day!  Enjoy!

Ryan wasn't feeling very photogenic...

This is not a postcard - My Mom took this!  Beautiful!

Snuggling and One of Callie's Creations

Thoughts of the day both Religious and Political...

Although not widely popular topics of casual conversation amongst my fellow generation X 'ers, two of my favorite ideas to discuss and ponder each day are Religion and Politics...  What is happening in our world, Who, What I think, How I feel, grow and change, Where, and Why...  How to live a Christian Life...  Walk with God...  This is where my mind/heart is wondering today.

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that He will make all things right
If I surrender to His will,
That I may reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
