Taking after her dad in this way, she has come to love anime and cosplay. On this weekend, she was in Kentucky with her mom, for an anime gathering, dressed as Taiga from Toradora.
Here in Ohio, we have had more rain than usual, but no where near the amount they've been warning us about for the last couple of days. Flood Warning. Well we did have one heavy rain, for maybe 15 minutes. So far, it is going north and south of us as it has for months now.
We did have a very large branch, at least 60 feet long, fall from one of our very old and tall oak trees yesterday afternoon, while Ron and I both watched. It was rare that we would both be near that window. Glad we got to see it fall from a height of two stories or more.
Today, I found the place on the tree from which it had fallen and photographed it as well as I could.
I also got pictures of Ron as he chopped it up for disposal. I'm sure someone would have liked it for a fireplace; but he was just anxious to clear the lawn and get rid of the mess.
And more important than the clutter in our yard is the subject of an email in my mailbox this morning. We need to get the clutter out of our hearts and turn back to our maker.
Here is a portion of that letter:
Dear Beloved God in Heaven,
Please give us a president that loves this country and everything it stands for.
Please give us a president who respects you as the one true God.
Please give us a president who will, with your help, restore this nation to its former glory, the way you created it.
Please help us to respect what you have given to us and not take anything for granted ever again.
Please God, weaken the evil and strengthen the good, both within and without.
May our eyes be opened.
In Jesus' name, Amen ….
And just one more thing on my mind. Let's quit taking the Lord's name in vane with the expression OMG, which stands for Oh My God. This expression rarely if ever is used in reference to God and His glory, but only for ...well you know. Let's take charge of our tongues as use them to bring glory to God.
