Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justice like the ocean depths.
You care for people and animals alike, O Lord.
How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.
Psalm 36: 5--7 (NLT)
"A Rocky Place"

A Dusty Refuge
Caddo Lake, Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge in Southwest Oklahoma. The wind blew hard, from the southwest, all day with gusts to 50+ mph. Dust from the fields began filling the sky in the early afternoon. The dust clouds were so heavy the sun was obscured from about 6:30pm through sunset at 7:40pm.
The Path We Take
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take." Proverbs 3:5--6 (NLT)
He led me up this road to this spot after thoughtful prayer began the morning.
Star Light, Star Bright
Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
We'll make a wish, and do as dreamers do,
And all our wishes (all our wishes),
Will come true.
