"Beauty confronts us with the requirement that we place ourselves among...the redeemers, the leaders in the protection of life. Once you have seen the bush on fire, you are not going to get out of the assignment unless you close your eyes to the beauty.... [You] either have to close your eyes or go back to Egypt and set the people free." - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, "Rising to the Challenge of Our Times"

Happy Birthday Ripley!

She's asleep right now and not available for comment, but she's asleep because she had such a good day running around in the park and swimming in the creek with her cousin Sydney (a mini Aussie shepherd who lives in Santa Rosa). Tomorrow will involve more of the same, no doubt.

Happy Birthday too Ripley! She is a fortunate dog to have such a good house and caretaker.

How was the Birthday Cake? A typical 1 year old performance?
Give her an extra milkbone for grandma!

Cute hat. I can't comment beyond that because I am trying to find you! Email me at jenanngood@yahoo.com. I found your blog on the mission website.
