The husband received a game camera from Julie and Jack, one of those motion sensitive and infrared cameras that take pictures at intervals after being triggered by motion. He has had lots of fun with it, and a few nights back caught Miss Mercy sniffing around a tree trunk in the lower back yard.
And he had about a million pictures of squirrels recorded around that stump during the night. But you have seen squirrels, so I'll just post a picture of a small fox that was captured on film. Fox appears to be about the size of our 12 lb. Mercy. Sure hope he just eats squirrels and not the hollyhocks.
Last night the husband positioned the camera at a different spot, but there were no more pictures triggered by motion other than a few that perhaps a bird could be blamed for in its flight.
On a different note: today is my younger daughter's birthday. She has had no contact with me for two years now. Such a sadness, such a loss. In happier times, this picture recorded her birth in Michigan in what seems a lifetime ago when her dad and I were students at MSU.

I am still no closer to figuring out why she has chosen her life path to exclude me and the rest of our family (referring back to a post written in 2012.) I continue to pray for her daily, and trust her to God's mercy.

It has been ages ago that I last posted on Paint Party Friday; so now is the time. Check out PAINT PARTY FRIDAY and others' artwork. Think this will be called "Here Comes the Son" (note spelling is correct...John 8:12)

King James Version (KJV)
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
