Small Beginnings…

This blog generally features trails and trips and natural wonders along the way, but this week I’m looking back at the way I’ve come.  I’m celebrating the half century journey I’ve had so far, particularly its beginnings…Mom holding Lindy by trees - 62

Long ago and far away a little girl was welcomed into a family already boasting two boys…Brad Steve Lindy lying on bed - 62

What a lot of life has been traversed since that once-upon-a-time, now half a century ago…




I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread. (Ps.37:25)

“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope.  The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  ‘The LORD is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him.’” (Lam.3:21-24ESV)
