High Five

2016-06-25 yosemite to Cody1

On our drive from Yosemite to Cody, Wyoming we passed through the Absaroka range. The Absaroka Range across the Montana-Wyoming border, and 75 miles at its widest, forms the eastern boundary of Yellowstone National Park along Paradise Valley (Montana), and the western side of the Bighorn Basin. These rugged cliffs are home to the largest bighorn sheep herds in the United States. High on these cliffs the sheep are protected from their predators.

I’m thankful to God for the following five where and with whom I feel protected.

I’m thankful for my home where I am protected from the elements.

I’m thankful for my husband with whom I feel safe and protected.

I’m thankful for our local police, our state police, our border patrol who work hard to protect us from harm and who help us in crisis.

I’m thankful for our military who protect our freedom and our country.

I’m most thankful to Jesus and what He accomplished on the cross, for being my Savior who protects me from isolation and separation from God.

What or who makes you feel protected?

Linking up with Amy at Love Made My Home and with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for Five on Friday and Friday’s Fave Five.

The truck attack in Nice, France is just horrible. I feel so sad for all the people who were struck down in the midst of happy celebrations. Praying for the families that are forever changed by this. Make peace with the one true God and hug your loved ones.

A Good Fence With a Commission…

Quiet Warrior ~ Isaiah 6:8

Isaiah 6:8 (ESV) Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord.

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.”

We spotted this on Highway 14 between the East Entrance/Exit from Yellowstone National Park and Cody, Wyoming.

We had a wonderful time at Century Link Field in Seattle at a soccer match last evening. It’s always great when the weather is lovely and your team wins in grand fashion. 5 different players scored a goal for the 5-0 shutout which means here in Seattle we can get a free pizza today from Papa Murhpy’s and a free haircut at Great Clips in the next 7 days with our match day ticket/pass. Fun promotions.

Today is mowing the lawn day and then I’ll pick up our free pizza.  What’s happening in your world?
