The Painting: This was unusual as it painted out but I fell in love with it! Email me if it tugs at your heart and mention the name of the painting.

The Thought:  Purple Barns.  We saw two purple barns on the way back from Bonham yesterday.  We drove one route up to Bonham through Commerce and Bailey but there as so much road construction we came home through Paris and Bogata.  Made much better time that way (altho mileage was longer) the roads were wonderful and very little traffic.

On the way home is when I spotted the purple barns.  I truly have never seen anyone paint a barn purple before... a dark lavender purple, like the sky is at night. The ends of the barns were light forest green.  Had there been black and white cows I would have stopped to take a picture...but we were going about 70 mph as we cruised by them.

Purple is my favorite color. 

Next on the way home we spotted something else we had never seen before.  When you are in the country you see all sorts of different things lying around in pastures. Near us at home is an excavator painted like a giraffe...but what we saw today was even better. There in the middle of this farm field was a large Convair airplane, TP says a 580 or a 440.  That is not a small airplane as it holds 44-54 passengers with two row seating.   This is what we saw but a picture from the internet of one at the Delta Museum. The picture is linked to the website I found it on....

The plane was just sitting out in the pasture near the highway with a barn behind it.   We slowed down for this one. It was a first, especially in East Texas. How many farmers/ranchers have one of these in their field?

Our trip today was full of emotions, laughter, good company and a great visit with my Dad. His Alzheimers is full bloom and his age is catching up with him as he appears much more feeble than my last trip to see him in March.  God is good and His love endures forever. My faith grows with each day and the journey I am on as I marvel at His gifts and His sense of humor. 

We went sailing at five last night and docked about 8 as the sun was going down.  Can't ask for much more than that to end the week. Hopefully the winds will be good this morning and we will sail again.

GOD IS GOOD.  All the time GOD IS GOOD.


Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”- Psalm 46:10
