Another Earth



So this is my "other" post from Theme Thursday that took a back seat my cavernous adventures... 


A day at the park, climbing monkey bars, chasing giggles down the slides, soaring high to touch the blue-ness of the sky. Making new friends in the sandbox, smiling through the suns rays. Fun for all and nary a notice that it was not new. Everything in the park, recycled, reused. Someone's water pipes, transformed to create castles of monkey bars. Tires, once adorning a neighbors vehicles becomes blue spongy mulch to save the ouch when you fall. What was old, becomes new adventures.

Three generations, swinging on chairs that once sat on a porch.
 
Our new eco-friendly vehicle, takes us there.


A coat of paint and dash of imagination, its amazing how you can (re)use another man's (re)fuse, when you put your mind to it.

Have a great Saturday, get out and have some fun!

What a great concept for a playground, my son would love it. I love the spongy anti-ouch mulch.

Good food, a glass of wine and relaxed conversation.

Hey man, good stuff. I wasn't necessarily arguing for the hell fire and brimstone, as I know that can just scare people. I was simple stating there is still much truth that gets ignored. Jesus was clear about doing what God wanted and expanding the kingdom, and he called out evil, like the Pharisees as Broods of vipers. It's hard to necessarily judge his tone, but I don't believe his purpose was to scare, simply to educate and admonish. As a whole, and as a Southern Baptist, I still think we are doing that, with the help of the SBCV and other partnerships. I simply believe that if we only speak the good and never tell the bad, then people are really in for a rude awakening.
