Mighty Dog of Valor!

Mighty Dog of Valor!

Ezra, my mighty dog of valor! I recently began calling him this based on two things: 1) what we say & declare/decree over others matters (our words matter far more than we may realize), 2) from the scripture on Gideon in the Bible, Judges 6:12 The thing is, Gideon was threshing wheat in the wine press to hide from the Midianites what he was doing – the right thing in the wrong place. However, the Angel of the Lord appeared...

Desert “Drift” Wood & Weeds


Posted By on Sep 23, 2021

Desert “drift” wood and weeds. Weird thing to take a pic of huh? These are the things I’ve learned to notice and gaze upon while living in the desert. Especially when I used to go on my early morning walks with my former Carolina Dog, Schatzie. The quiet early mornings with her by my side were the best. I learned to notice and see things in the quiet. It wasn’t still because mornings are active times with wildlife but we need to be...

Inspired by Ezra Not feeling on par? What happens when your vehicle needs a tune-up?  We take it to get a tune-up (or if you’re mechanically inclined you do it yourself). What about an instrument that isn’t in tune?  The musician gets it tuned-up or it won’t sound very good no matter how accomplished the musician is.

My favorite desert wild flowers! I wrote this back in June when we were in severe drought. Even though the drought has ended and the blazing temperatures have waned a tad, we are often still breathing the smoke from new wildfires or smoke from neighboring states that are still blazing. At the end of this I’ll share a pic of just one of the THREE ponds that have appeared in our lower yard since I wrote this post initially for my...

FOOD for Thought

FOOD for Thought

Schatzie taking a nap This won’t be a long post but it does bear sharing as so many have this mindset on the pet carnivore – NOT the wild carnivore mind you. People seem to understand the needs of the wild one but totally dissociate our carnivore pets from that for some very odd reason. For the record, I’m not open to debate on this topic as I have taken the full journey from kibble, to omnivore diet to carnivore...
