Going in Search . Snipe Hunt in the backyard . Too much Dead Grass .  Blue Morning Glories by Laurie Pace 

Do you have dogs? We only have one, and gee whiz, going in search in the backyard to snipe is about as twisted as the painting above. The dead grass is dry, brittle and breaking off into pieces. Somewhere buried and woven through the grass are the 'gifts' of love Paddy has left us. I have the best eyes, so I am the hunter. Terry handles the equipment that scoops it all up. Takes us about thirty minutes each week and we have tried to make it more fun. During the summer months it is not as bad as these cold winter months. 

Often in life we take off in search of something we seem to feel we are missing.  Most of the time we have no idea what we are looking for. The search often becomes difficult.  The hardest lesson to learn in life is that we actually have exactly what we are suppose to have with what God provides, including our gifts. We really do not have to go in search; what we need is already ours. Do you have a gift lying around you have not used? Search your heart first and talk to God about it. 

Blessings, Laurie
