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.

 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!

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!

Dear Friends we found autumn! 

We took a lovely country ride and guess what...

 we spotted some lovely color

along with a few scarecrows

to welcome in the season.

So glad we found it.

Thank you for taking time to stop and visit.
Have a lovely week.

Where is Autumn?

Many of us in this part of the world have been asking where is autumn?

Our vibrant fall colors are missing.
The temperatures remain unseasonably warm.

Summer flowers are still blooming...


Even I have returned to painting spring subjects.

Today the wind is blowing.   That often signals a change in the weather.  Just maybe it will bring some of autumn's glory.   Hope so!

Take care friends and have a blessed week.

An Unusual Surprise

October brought an unusual surprise...

a sweet violet blooming in autumn's sunshine. 

They generally are one of April's gifts.

Upon searching found three more bravely poking their heads above fall's debris.

Just goes to show that each season may delight us with unusual surprises.

Hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of spring in October.

Have a blessed week.

Hugs Debbie
