Intricate Saloon

The intricate interior of the fantasticly fun Bucksnort Saloon in Sphinx Park, Colorado. Built in the late 1800’s this building was originally a mercantile store that served the men of the Denver and South Park railroad. Bring a dollar or your business card and leave a legacy! 

 

How great are your works, O Lord!
Your plans are very intricate!
Psalm 92:5 (NET)

Vail In A Blur

Vail, Colorado as we sped past on Interstate 70, which crosses the Rocky Mountains.

Vail

Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely,
just as God now knows me completely.
1st Corinthians 13:12 (NLT)

Orange You Glad

I used to hate orange. It was so garish and loud and…crass. It looked like it was trying too hard to be cute and failing miserably, like an older woman with too much makeup and tight clothes. (Please, God, don’t ever let me look like that :/ I wanted orange to take on some blue and chill out a bit already.

But something changed last year and now I see orange’s beauty. She is still screamy loud but now I see her joy. She’s just happy as hell and a tad different than everyone else, but she doesn’t care. She’s living it up and if you don’t come along, that’s your loss. I like her, the little racy rebel. I may do a couple of posts in her honor.

Valentine Poem

EngagedYou are the…

Song for my verse
Kit for my cat
Wheels for my trip
Train for my track

Clean for my mess
Star for my play
Feet for my dance
Sun for my gray

Race for my car
Ball for my game
Boat for my sail
Last for my name

Brand for my cards
Laugh for my tears
Go for my slow
Balm for my fears

Kiss for my lips
Joy for my heart
Have for my hold
Till death do us part
