Autumn Thoughts...

“Delight yourself also in the LORD, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:4 There is nothing better than a very relaxing day, doing what you really enjoy doing. The older I get the more I am learning how to just relax and let those times just happen. Yesterday was one of those days. After checking out the prices of replacing my double storm doors; I decided that it would be better for my pocketbook if I just slap on a couple of layers of paint and put on some new hardware. And Voila! I must say my front entrance look fabulous! (That is if you don’t look too hard and see the drops of paint that missed the doors). So with “new” doors, it was time to decorate. Decorating for each season is my most favorite thing to do, other than eating a Hershey’s Special dark chocolate bar, but that’s a whole other subject. Since I am in decorating mode, I might as well make it an event so I start a big pot of Vegetable beef soup in the crock pot; nothing like soup to warm u

My Help

Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me. Psalms 54:4 I really enjoy my drive to work, most mornings that is. I put on my worship music and enjoy my 20 minute ride through the country side. On occasions I do have to dodge the driver that dangerously weaves in and out of traffic or the elderly person that gets in front of you and drives abut 10 miles and hour, but most times I have a peaceful drive in. This morning I enjoyed the beginnings of the autumn season. Fields that once were brimming with green corn stalks are now turning to brown. Fields of green produce are now turning to shades of gold. Flocks and flocks of geese trying desperately to make their V formation. I don’t know if they are actually flying south this early or rehearsing for the real thing. I say this because I notice that a few of the geese are having a hard time getting in “line” behind the leader, it makes me laugh. Fall is in the air, you can sense it, and there is a definite change in th

Babies! Babies!

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalms 127:3 There are babies being born in my family and it is so precious…they are so precious! My sweet little grand–nieces and nephew, all three born within a year or so. I look at their sweet perfect little faces and I cannot help but praise God for His goodness and miracle working power. I think that in these days we have taken the birthing process for granted. Millions of babies are aborted every minute around the world, I believe that the thinking about birth has cooled down to a “Ho-hum “ experience. When the birth of every child is a miracle within itself. The Bible says that children are a heritage from the Lord. God is giving us a legacy and we know that every gift from God is good. God is saying to us “here is a gift to see yourself go on to another generation”. Though my son is grown, every time I look at him I see his father, even his grandfather and I also see me. And now that he h
