Prayerful Voting

I love this truthfully encouraging quote from our (by which I mean Georgia’s) senator Raphael Warnock …

“A vote is a prayer about the kind of world we want to live in. And prayers are stronger when we pray together.”

As you may know, on December 6 there is an important senatorial runoff in my state of Georgia between Warnock and Herschel Walker.

I know that many who care not about facts will of course disagree, but Walker has shown himself to be a repeated liar (“I am a deputy!”), a horrendous hypocrite (“I am anti-abortion” while paying for multiple abortions for his lovers), a terrible father (his son says he was never there for him), “pro-family” (which means that he is against my being able to stay married to my husband Robert), “pro-life” which means he is against a woman’s right to have autonomy over her own body, an election denier (“Trump won” — of course Trump won, he groomed and endorsed you), etc, etc, etc.

Here is a link to an article from Georgia Public Broadcasting highlighting the two candidates’ stands on major issues …

May Georgians overwhelmingly dismiss Walker’s corrosive campaign and keep our Senator Warnock in D.C.

“Lord in your mercy, hear our prayers.”

1. More Savannah fall sidewalk beauty to process.

2. Speaking of beauty, a beautiful little turtle I filmed (10 seconds, watch it!) at the education center at Sapelo Island this week. We really hit it off.

Let’s call her Autumn!

3. Unique walkways.

Also on Sapelo Island. We did a bunch of Sapelo-ing.

4. Today. Simply having TODAY. What a reason to rejoice!

5. Spanish moss and Robert.

I love them both.

May you have So Much to love this weekend!

Monday Moaning or Monday Marveling? 10/17/22 “Plant Life”

Each day, I continue to be amazed at the incredible, diverse joy of Plant Life.

Collards — my joy!
Carrots and onions.
Savannah corn!
Local tomatoes
The elephant ear, my favorite plant of all time.
Pumpkin glory.
Bananas!
Sunflower (inside our apartment!)

This post could go on and on, but I’ll end with perhaps The Joy of My Life, the southern Longleaf Pine …

Here’s to Plants!

1. Having a bed. To lay my head on every night. What a blessing. And to share with my Robert.

The little black bedside lamp was a birthday gift to me from my parents when I was in junior high.

2. Memories—the beautiful as well as the not-so-pretty. They are all a part of our legacy of life.

3. The unique scent of pine.

4. Low country boil for lunch this week.

5. The many faces of pruning.

See them?

Morning walk around Lake Mayer here in Savannah.

May you catch glimpses of beauty this weekend.
