Super Moon


December certainly brought a lovely gift...  a super moon.   Hubby and I enjoyed an evening walk beneath this beautiful light.  What a great way to start the Christmas season.   May all of you enjoy it too!   Have a "Super" week.

The Last of November

It is the last of November friends.   Most of the leaves have fallen...harvest season is at an end ... deer hunting has begun.

Soon it will be time to prepare for Christmas and a New Year.   Seems like life happens way too fast.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could slow down and make the moments last?


I have just started reading a book "One Month to Live" by Kerry and Chris Shook.

It is based on the thought that if you only had one month to live what meaningful thing would you do each day.   I think it will be a perfect read for this time of the year.  Sometimes we get so caught up in the craziness of the holidays that we lose touch with why we are here and what is of importance.



Tomorrow another birthday will arrive.  It sets one to do some pondering.  While life has many ups and downs it seems vital to hold onto what matters.  In the big scheme of things as brother James penned in the scriptures ..."what is your life?  You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes."  James 4:14b   Upon that thought hoping everyone finds time to do what is meaningful this coming week.

Gather Together


Here in America this week many of us will gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving. 

There is something special about sharing a meal, conversation and gratefulness with family and friends.

For me personally it is a favorite holiday of the year.   I love all the traditional dishes this season brings...especially pie!!

The laughter shared, stories told and good memories make the day a big part of gratitude which enriches the spirit.

In considering the gathering together I am reminded of an old hymn that is a Netherlands Folk song.  Hope you enjoy.

 God Bless and have a wonderful holiday and week.

Joy

 Today I found joy in the lingering fall colors...












Baking a pie...













Romping with two friends...













Painting lovely flowers ... (a gift from my Mom)

















Reading an inspirational book by Brenda Waggoner...












and reflecting on God's great love.













Perhaps you will share what brought you joy today.

Have a great week!

November Day

There was a lovely hush as the moon began to slip away.













Softly dawn's light began to awaken the hills.














A rosy glow filled the sky.













Yes a lovely November day was on its way!


Hope you have one too.

God Bless!

Encouragement

In this mixed up world where evil seems to persist one often finds themselves searching for encouragement.

This passage in Psalms has helped me...maybe it will you too.

"Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong;









for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good;  dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture."  Psalm 37: 1-3 (NIV)











May all of you be encouraged this week.

God Bless!

Debbie
