Becca visiting Rainy Pass in Washington State and a poem "A Simple Place in Time" by Marilyn Ferguson.

Last week we headed out to drive the North Cascades Highway to Rainy Pass – one of the highest points on the highway and one of the highlights of a trip through the North Cascades. We stopped at the Diablo Lake Overlook and spent a long time checking out all the views and taking lots of pictures!  Diablo Lake was created by the Seattle City Light Company when they dammed up the Skagit River to create power! All dammed up to make a simple place in time.

Simple Barn in Montana

There was a time
Not long ago
Life was simple
Pace was slow.

Working fathers
In their place
Mothers’ home
Was full of grace.

She was there
To fill the cup
Teach them manners
Bring them up.

Kids were spanked
When they did wrong
Families sang
A different song.

Simple River Views

Youth were taught
The golden rule
In the church
And in the school.

A time we knew
Our neighbors’ name
Country folk
Down wooded lane.

Eagle in Flight near a Simple Farm in Washington

There was a wrong
There was a right
Honest people
Didn’t fight.

T.V. stations
Off at ten
Local news
Came on back then.

No C.D.s
And no Ipods
Just radios
And fishin rods.

No laptops
And no cell phones
Just happy families
Time alone.

The days of old
Have gone away
And men don’t take
The time to pray.

Rainbow in the Trees

War is raging
Hear the cries
A young man dies

Lots of crime
Out in the street
Trust is gone
In those we meet.

World is angry
People swear
Sin is found
Most everywhere.

Rainy Pass River

There was a day
We knew no woe
But now our prisons

Life goes on
The pace is fast
The days of old
Will never last.

Unborn children
Silent cry
Laws are made
Why must they die?

Laws are changing
Vows are too
Jack and John
Now say, “I do.”

Simple Daisies on the River Bank

Bible sits
Upon the shelf
Every man
Is for himself.

Dust has gathered
On The Word
Book of God
Has gone unheard.

How I miss
So long ago
Life was simple
Pace was slow.
