Hot Summer Day

Finally we have a warm day! We here in this part of Canada have had nothing but cool temperatures accompanied by rain storms, until yesterday.

Not to make light of the terrible heat that some States, and Provinces are enduring, with fires that rage out of control, like in BC...Our prayers are with them.

As for our wonderfully warm summer day, my grandson Lu. is taking full advantage of the fun things in "gammas" back yard.
A little jump over the sprinkler to cool off.
Then a big jump in the kiddie you can see my granddaughter
Billa is none too impressed with her brothers splash!
Lu plays water foot ball
Stops to watch his sister's strange attempt of getting in to the pool.
Of course she had to change her swim suite, due to her brothers splash. Billa try's to get in the pool on her a very cute way but does can not manage it, gamma has to help her in...but we wont show you a picture of that...gamma in a swim suit, not too cute:)
Eli is under cover sleeping soundly

He's just too beautiful for words, except thank you Lord.

Lets end this perfect day with some water melon
See ya all on Saturday

To Choose One Thing For Another

I was going to wait to post this for Sunday...but I have been so touch by the Lord this day. He has been calling me to him for the last few weeks.(probably longer)
I admit I have been confused of late as to who I am and what I believe...
I know deep down inside me who I am. I know what I believe and the great steps I chose to take. With the unbelievable pain I have had to live with because of that deliberate choice I made, to be who and what I am today... a Christian a Christ follower.
Thus the name change....
Turn off my music player to the left, in order to hear and see the you tube player.

I and my hubby went for a drive to a town in our Provence about 70 miles away, Portage la Prairie.
While chit-chatting we were both dumb struck when we drove past a steel tree with a steel eagle sitting on top.
That tree is 85 feet high, and the eagle is an outstanding 12 feet.
The eagle shimmers in day light as it looks out towards the East to signify the beginning of a new day. The tree was made by a local artist, Jake Goertzan.

The picture below gives an idea of how tall this structure really is, you can see the evergreen tree tops far beneath the monument.
The eagle was constructed by an American artist.

The first nation Long Plain People have there reserve here Keeshkeemaquah and have these two structure to commemorating their people and the land they reside on.
On the same reserve, at the Arrowhead gas bar, sits a huge grizzly bear carved from one large peace of wood, ceder I think?
As well as this beautiful door leading to one of their conference rooms
We even meet an ancestor of the great late Chief Shortbear, he was our tour guide and host to this incredible place, Gregg Arrowhead.

In the same town we drove past this structure of an owl made also of steel, it stands about 10 feet high.
