Happy Autumn 🍁🍂🍁🍂

With my arms wide open

I welcome the dawn

On the first

Of this

Autumn morn..

The sky lightens

The birds they sing

Welcoming the Equinox

And the changes it brings…

The trees dance on the breeze

As the sun begins to rise

Sky gets brighter

Morning has broken and

Autumn arrives…….

2020 Home Photo Challenge

This was my backyard view this morning. An incredibly beautiful start this new day courtesy of God 💛☀️

“In the morning, LORD, You hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before You and wait expectantly.” ~Psalm 5:3~

Father, thank you for intervening in my life and allowing me to have a personal relationship with you. Thank you for your love for me today and forever. Thank you for the blessings you’ve given me and my family. Help us use those blessings to bless others. May I live a life of true joy as I see you at work around me today! In Jesus’ name. Amen. -~Ron Moore~

2020 Home Photo Challenge 1-18-20

The last few years, its crazy saying years, but these last few years have brought about great change, growth and transformation in my life. I’ve been struggling with the direction I think my blog should go, so in a word, I’m lost.

I noticed over at Lillie-Put Joseph has started a photo challenge. This particular challenge is called The 2020 Home Photo Challenge. One photo, taken everyday, in or around your home. This is something I can get on board with! So here we go….

“That’s what winter is: an exercise in remembering how to still yourself then how to come pliantly back to life again.” ~Ali Smith~

30 Days Of Gratitude … Days 13-14 🙏

I Am Thankful and Grateful

Day 13: finding some of Jim’s words 😊❤️

FROM THE BEACH

The Mystery Of Life can not be more clearly explained then by

comparing Human Life to an Ocean Wave.

Human Life begins as does the Ocean Wave, mysteriously beyond

the horizon and out of sight.

Yet, from the time of their creation, we know they exist. In their

infancy they are recognized as a miracle, a gift from our Creator

and watched with awe.

As they grow, they are affected by the elements and forces of

nature which cannot be; controlled, contained and at times

explained.

In maturity, they can be warm and gentle or cold and forbidding:

productive or destructive.

As they pass maturity, they both strain to hold on to their

individuality and existence.

The Wave, after crashing onto a beach, surges in a froth, spreading

more and more slowly until it can no longer continue, in ‘death’, it is

forced to retreat back to the Ocean, its universe, to be reborn as a

new Force Of Nature.

Man, when no longer able to sustain a worldly existence, in death,

retreats back to his universe to be reborn as a new Force Of Nature.

All Life Is Precious and All Life Is Eternal.

Day 14: I Am Thankful and Grateful for each little miracle, like watching the birds in my feeder 🙏

Heavenly Father, sometimes, ok a lot if times, I tend to take my miracles for granted, or I take for granted You already know that I am grateful, so I don’t express my gratitude as often as I should. Whatever my reasons, today, this moment, I pray to you on fallen knees, how Grateful I Am.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
