Oh my goodness! What a storm--what a sky! These colors are so beautifully blended, one color highlighting the next. You may have guessed by now that I am an avid sky watcher. We have just recently moved to a home situated on top of a hill in Iowa with a panoramic view of the sky and surrounding farmlands and prairie. On a clear day, the neighbors say that one can see for 10 miles in every direction! Oh how I love this view unencumbered by fences and walls...just wide open. Robert Frost, in his poem, " Mending Wall" expresses disdain for walls between people, and ponders the words of his neighbor, "Good fences make good neighbors." I was thinking about this poem this morning, then I turned to read my favorite blogs. As I was reading, I thought that Robert Frost, if he had lived today, would be shocked to find that many of these walls have eroded, fallen down, or never even existed. I love the way that we can share our lives with each other, without hiding behind a facade. If one is hurting, we pray for them. When another is joyful, we rejoice with them. Every accomplishment by one of us, holds a sense of shared pride for all. We encourage each other, care for each other, and respect each other. I am so grateful for all of you this day. What a blessing you are to me!
