The prompt: Clouds. I look out my window for inspiration and am rewarded with a thick, dense, oppressive layer of clouds threatening to drop right down to the water. It is a rainy day in here in Ketchikan, the puddles on my deck dance and ripple - there is a single fishing boat out on … Continue reading Ketchikan Clouds
1 John 3:17 17 But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?

Another food prompt! Yay! When the girls were growing up we adopted a "divide and conquer" mentality. One of us would cook dinner and the other would get the kids in the bath, or the laundry sorted so we actually had clothes the next day. Maybe packing lunches or walking the dog or helping kids … Continue reading To Julienne with Joy
