What happened to May? It is always sad to say good-bye to the old thread/month.

On Friday, I realized that June was only a day away.

Beautiful, Lori.

We haven’t been to Santa Barbara for a few years. It is a lovely area.

Fifty+ years ago we visited Santa Barbara on our honeymoon.

Meanwhile, I can see how the June 1 and 2 holidays can be confused in that
reading the New York Times has been compared with having a root canal.

Risky Business
He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. —Matthew 8:26
Denis Boyles knew it would be challenging to interview a man on a roller coaster—especially when the interview took place during an attempt to set a world’s record for continuous riding. After several times around the track, Denis was so overcome with fear he could hardly talk.

Then the man showed him how to use his body and feet to lean into the loops, twists, and turns. Writing in AARP Magazine, Boyles explained how that took away the terror. It also taught him a lesson about risk and fear. The roller coaster felt risky though it was quite safe. But driving his car to the amusement park posed a far greater risk of injury. Risk and fear are easily confused.

As Jesus and His disciples crossed the Sea of Galilee, a storm came up and waves swept over their boat. Incredibly, Jesus was asleep. The disciples woke Him and said, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” (Matt. 8:25). In a gentle rebuke, Jesus asked, “‘Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?’ Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm” (v.26).

Like the disciples, the more we learn about Jesus, the more we trust Him. Our greatest risk is failing to depend on Him when life seems out of control.

But we see Jesus! Oh, what peace!
What balm for troubled heart!
His very name brings rest and calm
And bids the fears depart! —Adams

Keep your eyes on Jesus and you’ll soon lose sight of your fears.


Bible in One Year: 2 Kings 7–9; Proverbs 22:1-8

Beautiful lesson this Monday morning, Mr. Mayor. Sometimes I fail when I try to solve all my problems without asking the Lord to help. He knows the answers when we don’t! God Bless you!

Amen....I would rather have a root canal than to believe anything in the New York Times!

Very lovely picture, Meg. I tried to see everyone’s pictures yesterday but did not get to comment.

Have a dr.s appt. today and I hate starting off Monday that way. Just got all the flowers watered and birdbaths filled. I did sit out there a few minutes watching my beautiful critters. There was a cardinal sitting on the phone wire watching me and as soon as I finished and sat down, he flew down on the ground under a bird feeder! I know you love cardinals. They’re beautiful.

I will see everybody as soon as I can.......!
