This week as I worked I had so many emotion,... I prayed, I searched, I cried, I questioned, I reminisced, I smiled, and even laughed! One thing for sure I didn't nor have I forgotten the folk who live in the path of hurricane Harvey! For sure nothing happens that escapes God's eyes, ears, hands and heart! He is still in control, satan cannot win no matter what he tries to do! A scripture verse that brings me so much comfort is:
John 16:33 I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the world!
This week was spent getting the house cleaned and ready for fall decorating. I opened 4 boxes of decorations, plus a few added items. Last year I wasn't able to decorate for fall due to my health issues so you can imagine how excited I was to see them.
I know I have mentioned this before, is it okay if I repeat, I just looove fall, the colors of autumn are me, my closet, and home will attest to that! I love reds, golds, browns, burgundy,and oranges.
For some reason I have become interested in old trucks, I saw this at Hobby Lobby, I smiled at him and he jumped right in my shopping cart!I couldn't say "no", so off we went!
After working on the decorating, I took a break midweek, called my Mom and invited her over for lunch, of course I wanted her to see what I had accomplished, just like when I was a little girl,~wink~ as usual she was delighted, guess you might say I passed the test. ~smile~We also had a gift for her, Susan and I have been working on a few projects for giftgiving.
This is called a "Blessings Jar", I will wait until we have finished to show and explain it to you. You know it isn't to early to begin to think about Christmas gift giving especially if you make them.Now aren't you glad you stopped by today.~wink~
On the menu was, green salad, deviled eggs, noodles, green bean, okra, and barbecued ribs, garlic toast,and of course southern iced tea.
I am so thankful that all of my inside decorations are up and smiling at me! I started early this year for several reason, we have several outdoor projects going on that must be finished before winter sets in, but best off all... I just plain wanted to! Now I can enjoy, taking my time to finish them. This is just a sneak peek, of fall at the farmhouse, I am looking forward to sharing more.
