The last couple of mornings we have had fog. It is kind of a rarity here in the desert. It has been nice, by not having it too often it seems to bring clarity through it’s obscurity. There is the comfort of knowing something is there even though you can’t see it at the moment. I love living in the desert. It truly is a box of chocolates every day.
“Most of us live in a fog. It’s like life is a movie we arrived to 20 minutes late. You know something important seems to be going on. But we can’t figure out the story. We don’t know what part we’re supposed to play or what the plot is.”

As I sat doing my morning readings, I was greeted with a light fog that was floating just off the surface of the desert. It diffused the sunrise in the east and created this soft pastel glow on the Twin Sisters to the west. Despite the 25 degree chill in the air, my heart received a much warming feeling. Made me feel very blessed to have this right out my window.
enjoy your day, find some warmth for your heart.††† en theos ††† jim
WHO & WHAT DO YOU TRUST???
Have you ever been driving in the mountains and you get stuck behind one of those logging trucks that are crawling up the slope at like 10 MPH. You can’t see far enough to feel you can safely pass. You’re in the midst of calculating how long you are going to be behind this truck. When out of the semi’s window comes this large sleeveless hairy arm with a much larger tattoo than the small Jesus fish you have inked on your bicep. The arm waves for you to come on bye.
You breathe a “thank God” and without much hesitation pull around the eighteen wheel obstacle. Half-way past the truck the thought occurs to you that you don’t know the truck driver from Adam (and hey, Adam didn’t always make the best decisions) and you have just let this stranger make a potentially life or death decision for you.
Kind of the same feeling when you are driving in the fog. You put your faith into the advice of a road sign to determine your speed and the degree of the approaching curve.
SO AGAIN I ASK, WHO,WHAT & WHERE ARE YOU PLACING YOUR TRUST?????????????
