Something Wicked This Way Comes

For almost our entire marriage (going on twenty-two years now), Alaine and I have used a wonderful daily devotional guide called Today's Light.  Today's Light takes it's readers through the Bible from cover to cover.   Earlier this year we read through the book of Isaiah as part of our evening devotions.  One of the key themes of the prophet is how God deals with the wicked.

The Year Without Summer

Enough is enough already.  Enough with the snow.  Enough with the cold.  When is spring going to arrive, and stick around!   Given the weather we've had the past few months I'm beginning to wonder:   what will our summer be like?

Did you know that there was a year when summer never came?  The year was 1816. 

What happened to cause the year without summer? It is believed that the anomaly was caused by a combination of a historic low in solar activity with a volcanic winter event, the latter caused by a succession of major volcanic eruptions capped off by the Mount Tambora eruption of 1815, the largest known eruption in over 1,300 years.

I should probably go ahead and just admit it.  I am a homebody.  I like being at home.  I wholehearted agree with Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz:  “There’s no place like home!”    

For the first eighteen years of my life I lived in the same house.  As a matter of fact, I lived in the same room of the same house.  Since then it has been an entirely different story.  I have been somewhat of a tumbleweed for the last three decades.  In the years since high school I have lived in San Antonio, Texas; Altus, Oklahoma; Newbury, England; Wayne, Nebraska; Norfolk, Nebraska. . . .  Well, you get the picture.

The Road Less Traveled

Last fall I had the chance to travel one of my favorite roads, Highway 61 to Winona.  Because I started out at 5:45am, I was just reaching Lake Pepin when the sun rose above the water.  It was a most beautiful sight.  It was still a little too early to see the fall colors.  I wondered if there would even be that much color on the trees because of the lack of rain.

A few days after this I found myself on a very different road.  One that led me off the beaten path. I decided to walk down to Mounds Park.
