Dog Bird days of Summer--It is hot and muggy here. I justed returned from a wonderful month long vacation. I saw high snow covered mountains, walked in the steps of the pioneers, and was cooled by the breeze coming in from the ocean. Now predictably, I feel that let down that comes from such a "mountain top" experience. But on the way home from the store--amid the heavy afternoon traffic, the 105 summer heat and dew point of 68, and admittably feeling a bit sorry for myself, I caught sight of this bird wading in a neighborhood mini-lake. I was reminded of the beauty all around us, and the importance of looking for the good. Perception is everything. I want to look for the good, try to change the bad, and let the results be to God's glory.
