We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

We Are Home

We are home.

We had a wonderful time. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. It even rained one day so we were forced to go into to town and see a movie.

I have a million pictures and stories to share. Well, not really a million but you know what I mean. Plan on at least a week's worth.

We saw some serious wildlife while we were there.

On Friday morning, Granny mentioned that she thought she had seen a bald eagle on Thursday. We all kind of raised our eyebrows and said, "Sure, Granny." She was pretty sure. We're all thinking...turkey buzzard.

And who knew? She HAD seen a bald eagle. On Friday late in the afternoon.....it landed above the deck. It was completely amazing.....at first it had its back to us.....and a fish that it was snacking upon in its talons.....

After snacking for a few moments.....he turned and looked right at us. It was awesome!!

He stayed for quite a few pictures and then gave us the nod and flew away. I thought he might return each evening around that same time, but no. We didn't see him again.
