~Autumn... the year's last, loveliest smile~


As the month comes to a close today, I look and wonder where the time went. This past month has flown by. Its seems to me as if time is accelerating! Many people that I know have the same perception.

My days here at home are filled with tasks, routines, and much prayer these days!! Something very powerful about believers coming together in unity in prayer and supplications to the Lord. We are seeing prayers being answered daily....it builds my faith and when I'm feeling out of sorts..restores my hope! God is so faithful!

This evening is relatively quiet. My daughter has been sick with tonsilitis...again...so she stayed home from work today and got some much needed rest. My son is at work and hubby is already in bed. Dishes are done and I started another load of laundry...I look around my house right now, and find it serene. The soft glimmer of candles, and the scent of pumpkin pie spice makes me thankful for these long Autumn evenings....makes my heart sing!

Tomorrows tasks:

~ Work on Holiday Notebook

~Laundry

~Water plants on back patio and front porch

~Pull some weeds and prune roses

~Log the bills for the month of November on the bill organizer and calender

~Prayer at church


Just a few things to do! I'm just thankful and grateful that I have a home to maintain, weeds to pull, laundry to wash fold and put away, and the freedom to pray and worship!!! God provides for every need that comes about!


"God who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness".

I LOVE that scripture. Isn't it amazing that He even provides the seed to sow with? Our God truly is an awesome God!
