Missing and Dragonfly Kisses

 Missing someone can put an awful ache in a body.  
Probably most of us have known that ache in one way or another. 
This week; I was just feelin it.
-- That loneliness ya know?  
This bible was a gift from Mentor who went home to Jesus  and the verse  highlited in purple;
that was her verse.  
"Thus says the Lord,
Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls.
But they said, 'We will not walk in it."

There's this worn path I walk almost every day....  
It's hard... and  usually this piece of my trail always gets me thinkin of  "the good way."

Out there walking; I think of my friend and mentor Cora a lot.
Mostly because all the things I wonder about in the bible ... I could ask her.
I wonder a lot and have so many questions....
Cora didn't mind all my wondering ....
She was trust worthy and really really really liked digging deep in the Word.
Man I miss her.
Been missin my Momma too.
Last night on my walk I kept seeing dragonflies.
They were everywhere!
 I wrote a journal entry  from that walk.  
The  dragonfly was on a  gate in the back pasture.   
At one point I realized I even had my Life is Good "dragonfly" shirt on. 
"Dragonfly kisses, Momma."  
With brave wings I fly.  

Alright friends,
Time to sign off.  
Myguy should be home soon.  
Until we meet again, 
Leaon Mary

Aw, Precious. You always have something here that I need. This morning on my walk, I found 3 dragonfly wings that had been taken off the poor bug. But there they were, glittering in the light-all delicate, lovely-a present from God-just for me. I picked them up to bring home-I actually lost 2 of them-they just flew away. I was carrying them so gingerly in my fingers, that I let them go by mistake. But I still have one of them.
I miss Cora too. I am so glad I got to know her.

So glad I know YOU.
