A lonely ‘bully’........

Here's a wave for this tough fella as we drive to and from town. He's a curiously comforting and familiar sight of solid Angus bull grazing on grass. 'Bully' (that's what we call him)  
used to have a black bull calf to keep him company but the youngster has moved elsewhere. As we motor-past our stately friend, our car often becomes a cacophony of "Hello Bully!" followed by the children asking "Do you think he's lonely?" and "Where did Bully's friend go?" or "Do you think we should tell Bully's owner that he's lonely?" On this day we stopped to talk to Bully and he got up from his shady spot and walked over to us - Bully got as close as he could to us right beside the fence! Dear Jesus all of our "Hello Bully" moments are for you.

Where did all the water go?

Not much rain lately but this is ridiculous - I thought dried up dams would look muddy but this is rather pretty! For the first time ever I walked across this dam. Discovered a most unusual bottom - just look at this..........

The dam bottom became a series of drying-up mud skyscrapers which wobbled - sometimes alarmingly - when I walked atop each one. Not sure why but crossing from one dried-up side to the other - while teetering and tottering upon these artisitc mud mounds - is just as crisp an experience as scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef in the late 1990s: except this time there were no sharks and no water. My walking across the dam moments are for You Jesus.

Plod and chew...

Driving home after a busy morning in town. Ahead, this considerate farmer motorbiked through his herd to hurry the bovines up for drivers (me). However, I wasn't in a hurry and it was so peaceful not having a deadline so drove at a snail's pace watching the cows plod and chew. My not-in-a-hurry cow gazing driving moments are for You dear Jesus.

Can you spot Jesus in this photo?

Hint... look for a well known albeit blurry Divine Mercy image..........

On the XPT train home from Sydney recently. Was exhausted and Jesus knew this so He provided me with my very own private booth on the train. It was just me (no one else got on during the 7 hour journey) so I had fun arranging my belongings for my game of "Can you spot Jesus in this photo?" Jesus my solo-train-booth moments are for You.

By the way, the book in the photo is my tattered St Faustina's "Divine Mercy In My Soul" - it's not an easy read but it's so worthwhile tackling. St Faustina's descriptions and passages on the numbers of souls going to hell and purgatory are sobering while her descriptions of Jesus appearing and speaking to her are treasured gifts. I'm also reading the sixth book in the 'Game of Thrones' series ("A Dance With Dragons" by George R.R. Martin). My St Faustina and Game of Thrones books couldn't be more incongruous but I'm absorbed in both so all of my book moments are for You Jesus too.
