Then Joy in Tea Talk

There is a great deal of poetry and
 fine sentiment in a chest of tea. 
 ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, Letters and Social Aims~

I'm having...English Breakfast tea.  It's eye opening.

My little halloween mug unpacked from its box for the season.

I'm feeling... refreshed.  It has been a grand week.  The kids here last weekend, The three day Parish Mission on forgiveness, and last night the  White Mass for physicians and healthcare workers offered by Bishop Thompson.

On my mind...Simply preparing for today.

Please join Ruth at Tea Talk today.


Today I also join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Lower Yellowstone Falls

The mist, it rises
The falls in beauty thunder
We all stand in awe!

 Thanks be to God!!!

~~Adventure Tour Express~~

“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints” ~Wilfred Peterson


I was wondering just the other day what had happened to the pictures of out trip to Montana in 2002.  That was a wonderful trip because It was the beginning of the Lewis and Clark Expedition for us.  Ron has a soft spot in his heart for those explorers of the early West.  So when we were visiting Mom and my brother's family in Billings, Montana we were treated to that wonderful sight

View from the walk overlooking the Yellowstone River.

Though it is not very clear we did our best to get the signature of Captain William Clark as he chiseled his name into the rock.  There is a great explanation of the discovery of his signature at Pompey's Pillar
See if you can make out the signature.

From the overlook a lot can be seen of the rugged counntry called Montana.

And we had a grand time on the shores of the
Yellowstone River playing in the sand.

I think it's worth mentioning that even though this is probably not one of the most visited sights in the area, with Yellowstone National Park just down the road.  And thought it doesn't have the most spectacular scenery, I think the history in this spot has a lot to offer.  
Wishing all who visit here a grand adventure today!  

Thanks be to God!

Now it's your turn. Please join in the fun and post an adventure we can all share and then link it here for all to see.

Canadian Fall

I'm back home from the wedding festivities and what a grand time we all had. There is nothing to compare with the gathering of family and friends on such an occasion. The sharing of love and hugs is the best gift one can receive.

I'm going to take some time to recuperate and gather my thoughts, but in the meantime I am offering these pictures that were sent to me as a gift. Enjoy!

Canadian Fall







Thanks be to God!!
