Much of our recent trip west was spent enjoying The Great Outdoors …what splendor and awe we found, most often in the most secluded and rugged places.

Boy meets Pacific Ocean

Redwoods at Jedediah Smith State Park

Yup, I drove through one!

Majestic Mt. Shasta

Beach boy meets snow for the first time!

Fortunately there were only two spots where there were rocks in the road with no place to swerve but off the cliff. Woo-sah, I can still drive high elevations after all these years!

Smith River…my favorite place to see a shade of blue you never see except deep in glaciers or geyser pools

Oregon coast

Now we know what a “sneaker wave” is!

Multnomah Falls

Thank You, God, for an incredible trip, for the privilege of being able to share Your inspired creation with my son, for spectacular shows of nature and for happy memories. God, may all people experience the natural revelation of You. May we serve You through caring for this world and its people, preserving these special and awe-some sights for generations to come.

May this cloud pass swiftly

Give way to skies blue;

Rain’s vital purpose,

To shine things anew

This week I learned too late about the dangers of going cold-turkey off hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for menopause, something I do not recommend doing on your own. Consult your doctor first so they can prescribe a titrating regimen!

Research shows some symptoms actually become worse during the months-long withdrawal and that it can be severe enough to cost some women their jobs, relationships and self-respect, by the time the storm passes.

Dear God, thank You for seasons and the weather and for moods, all of which are never permanent, but changing and future-bound. May each season usher in new hope, each storm yield new respect and each mood lead to happiness.

Thank You also for wisdom, endurance and unwavering family and friendships which keep us tethered to the palm tree during the brunt of the storm.

And please equip us all with patience to ride things out with grace, compassion, courage and faith, that we might breathe deeply and appreciate the fresh, shiny blue skies after the rain.
