As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Not Again!

As I breezed out of my back door yesterday, my mind was preoccupied with the errands I was running and the details of a game party the girls and I were hosting, but something off to my right caught my eye and stopped my dead in my tracks.

Do you see it?

Maybe if I zoom in a little, you can see what (who) it is.

Remember Grady?!
I introduced you to him last September...when he was an uninvited (and most unwelcome) guest who decided to live in my car.

Whether this is Grady who has finally made his way out of the car (which, incidentally, became Ron's car), or one of his relatives (Gray, Grayson, Grayce?)...well, he/she is still unwelcome.

Why doesn't Grady/Grayce/Whoever go and visit someone like my nature-y friend Kathy who would love him and show him to her children who would all admire him and sketch him in their nature journals?

Or why can't common gray tree frogs just live in...TREES?

Why must Grady insist on torturing me?


  1. Good Morning Cheryl,
    he or she is so cute, I don't believe I have seen a gray tree frog, mine are green and like my porch, I guess I fall in the category of nature-y love like your friend Kathy. lol. What I don;t like is the poop they leave on my window sills. lol
    Enjoyed your last post too.
    Thank you for your well wishes, my burn is doing better.

  2. It's adorable ! Our children would be sooooo excited to have Grady here (and no, we won't come to get him, but thanks for your kind offer. HA !).


  3. ~ Big grin ~ to those who love Grady! I'd love to be able to share him, but alas, we have not seen him since last weekend. (That is kind of a scary thought to me.)
