My Philippians 4:8 evening

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy (other translations say "of a good report") —think about such things."  There is so much that we are praying about, SO much, but for now, I am shifting the focus  to JUST the Philippians 4: 8 qualified thoughts and images

Cambodian  style wedding photo                           Western style photo
The wedding was certainly  ALL of the above   characteristics in my favorite verse!!


Daisy and her kitttens about 2 weeks old in June  Cats will have kittens, this is a true  thing
and the remaining two kittens in July
Esther's dog  Heidi and her puppies born about July 1. Dogs who break off their chains and visit young lady dogs who are "in season " will have puppies 62 days later . This is also true............

two of the pups up close............they are cute (loosely translated "lovely")  for now! The  "Real truth" is that the mix of the parent breeds makes these puppies officially Junk Yard Dogs ! TRUE!!
Aslan, Malachi's Golden Retriever, age 6 napping on a bench on the back deck. Those are NOT  his puppies. That is a good report.
Brownie loves to hop up on top of the cat house. The little girls used to milk her up there because she was easy to reach that way.That was good.
When I was in Liberia a mother bird successfully made a nest on our porch. She and maybe another visiting mamma bird laid eggs   which all hatched and fledged pretty quickly. Admirable!! Note three white eggs and one speckled one!

Excellent and of a good report too!!
FAMILY!! Grand daughter Emily graduates from High School

My son Joshua, Daugther-in-law Diana and Emily

Rachel has such a good eye for photography. She took the shots  in my garden of the gladioli and the lily
More things that are lovely.............
Here are Naomi and Grand daughter Mady after a mulberry picking morning
More loveliness!!

Son-in-law Jon took this of grandbaby Charlie. This boy knows he's got it goin' on!! Solidly walking well before his 10 month birthday.  Admirable  for sure!

Rachel is also good at photographing people. These are her shots of  Leah

Naomi did a good job of catching her older sisters in a sweet smile too!

Our favorite 4th of July dessert   Any  flavored cake, iced with real whipped cream, topped  with fresh strawberries and blueberries:   Excellent!!

Yes this is the pot I cook spaghetti in, or gumbo, and some times its used for boiling crawfish. We DO have a pot even bigger than this one !! SPEAKING of crawfish,  I had to  "borrow" this photo from a friend's album. It made me so homesick for SW  Louisiana! Crawfish season is just coming to an end.

..........whatever is praise  worthy...This flock of geese impressed me! They take over the road, and stay together and stop traffic until they are where they want  to go. I took this with my cell phone looking  out my Suburban window while I waited

whatever things are noble......this is certainly a noble effort, and it amuses me every time I look at it!

if  anything is excellent
