This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."
My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.
I took this photo yesterday, butterflies are one of the most beautiful creatures that God created.God knows that I enjoy them so much, therefore he fills my flower beds with lots and lots of them.(click to enlarge photo )
I walked first thing this morning, as our mornings have become cooler, or should I say bearable. There was for a while I could hardly take the heat even when I walked really early. This change is a sure sign that fall is coming soon!! Yea!! I can also see some of the leaves beginning to change their colors.
After I walk I always treat myself to some alone time with the Lord, I will go and sit by the pond with my Bible and journal in hand. This is the most precious time of day for me. I get to sit and commune with the One who makes my life worth while.
Psalm 63:1~ O God, thou art my God;early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is:
Our pond is pretty well stocked with catfish,brim, bass and who knows what else lurks beneath these waters. These catfish are very large, it was like watching a bunch of sharks run around. LOL
I took these pictures yesterday,aren't they the cutest. They entertain us so much.
I am still working on making "Apple Butter", this week I hope to finish the apples and start on the grapes.You might ask Why? make so much "Apple Butter." My mother has a widow's group and at Christmas time she gives each of them a "goodies bag" loaded with homemade goodies. I try and make different jams and jellies for her to give. I also give them to friends and family too, they make really nice gifts.
Tomorrow I will make applesauce! Needless to say I am anxious to get the fruits done so I can get to my fall cleaning, and put up my fall decorations. I have been thinking about cheating and going ahead and putting the decorations up and then cleaning. This goes totally against my nature. LOL I will admit to being behind with my housework with all the traveling and company this summer. But it was all worthwhile,I really miss being with our children and grandchildren.
Nothing very exciting happened today, just busy, busy, busy. lol.
I want to thank each of you who stop by and take the time to read these meager words of mine and for taking the time to leave a comment. May God bless and keep you in His loving care.
