My View for the Month: Yeah--I know the saying is, "What's on your mind?" But after a quiet month at home doing nothing, the better question for me is, "WHAT'S ON YOUR FEET?" Above: Not actually a selfie, but rather a "self portrait" of me sitting in my home office easy chair. I am an early riser so my normal routine is having my quiet time with my morning coffee, then I'm good to go for the day. I love spring! In most years, when April arrives, I have breakfast and head out to the yard or go on an Iowa adventure. Not true these past few weeks! Sometimes my quiet time lasts most of the day! After my morning at-home exercise, I have been spending the rest of the day at home, in my office easy chair, reading, writing, texting, or listening to music on my electronic devices. This worldwide pandemic has put a dark shadow on the whole world. But don't expect any "when, why, where, or what's" from me. Like everyone else, I am looking forward to a "better tomorrow"--one way or another. That's my prayer for you, too.  In the meantime, for those of us who do not need to work to provide essential services-- just stay home and comfortable. "WHAT'S ON YOUR FEET?"  For me, the answer is probably my John Deere socks--cuz they are comfortable and I have six pairs!!!!

The Lord said, "Go stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by." Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. (NIV) (1 Kings 19: 11-13)
