Guiding Hand

Have you ever wondered about wonder? I mean have you ever thought why you attribute a beauty or awe to certain things? Have you ever been amazed how a large tree can grow from the tiniest crack in a massive rock? Have you ever been rapt by a sunset, a blanket of fog, or ridge […]

Eyes Fixed On Jesus

Hebrews 12:1-3 is always relevant for our day.  Whether up or down, proud or humbled, taking a constant gander at Jesus is both fundamentally and necessarily the best direction one can possess.  We must keep our eyes upon him. Therefore, it must not be a surprise that mankind lives in constant distraction.  From vacations to […]

Rutledge Renegades

Reva Hustead went to Kirksville. Charlene Montgomery took Neta Phillips to Novelty to meet Jenny Walker.  Jenny and Neta went to Columbia. Reva Hustead and Dorothy Hunolt went to Quincy.  When they went to Spring Lake Country Club, as they were pulling in the drive-way a tree fell in front of the car, just missing […]

Final Frenzy

Final Frenzy

I sit alone in Bella Ciao, swaddled against the cold and wrapped in darkness at the base of a broad windowsill.  I pause a moment and prepare myself for a glimpse into Toon’s World of Wonders, a jar filled with water from several ponds at Dancing Rabbit. Click. The titanium-white glow of a headlamp filters […]

Wait on His best

It was only about 30 minutes after daylight when a doe and spike showed up under my tree stand. I had planned on putting some meat in my freezer and this doe would have been perfect, but I just couldn’t make myself let go of an arrow. I watched, waited, contemplated, and analyzed and still […]

The Grand World of New Eyes! 

Whoa!  I am experiencing something I never knew could be so fascinating!  I see with incredibly new lenses!  I can see again! My second cataract surgery was completed in early August.  I was in the land of recovery for the next four weeks.  Yet I could immediately tell you that I can’t take in the […]

Visitors and Memories

Visitors and Memories

Don’t know about you, kind reader, but I’m reeling from too many days in full-bore, too-much-to-do, holy-cow-autumn-is-approaching-WAY-too-fast mode… Tereza here, and it’s my turn again to regale you with stories from Dancing Rabbit Land, a wonderful place where the living is… well, perhaps not so much easy as it is meaningful. A place where the […]
