Fall Contemplations

Oak leaves...They are lovely enough to bring indoors. My Sister-in-law had some on the table the other night, which prompted me to clip some from the little tree across the road! 

“That I may  know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death.”
Philippians 3:10

What a blessing that God knows me and wants me to KNOW HIM! ...really KNOW Him. The rest my life must be lived in pursuit of God. What a journey!

A good book which we just ordered and it came today: The Knowledge of the Holy" - A.W. Tozer
Many years ago I read, "The Kneeling Christian". It was by an unknown author.

No casual reading of either of these can bring about this knowledge, but digging into God's Word, in response to them will. Oh, to learn the lessons! He is faithful!

This was our pumpkin soup tureen this Fall. I'd seen these white pumpkins. They're kind of ugly, actually, but when you paint them it gives a pretty effect.

Back to work. Thanks for stopping by.

An update on Mom:
She is getting physical therapy at least once per day. The speech therapist was there yesterday when I visited. They're very creative in the ways of therapy. We are so thankful that Mom is in a place that is doing everything they can to help her toward recovery.
One great prayer request that I have is, that she will perceive how God is reminding her moment by moment that He is there, giving her peace, ready to respond to her every prayer and meet her every need. Mom has always said, "you can pray to God at any time, in any place." I am thankful that she never forgot that. I trust that it is what she does all the time.

Overwhelmed by this beautiful day, by God's love and by the teachings from His Word! It was hard to decide between taking a longer walk, sitting outside in the sunshine, doing dishes, listening to Scripture and making I was able to do quite a bit of all of them, praise the Lord!

A blessing today was listening to two messages by Jim Berg; Work the Farm and Let The Word of Christ Dwell in you Richly. The Word of God is a book that must be dug into!

“But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he

 being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed

 in his deed.”

James 1:25

A good reminder today: If we say that we "cannot memorize the Bible", we might ask ourselves, "do you know your name and address, your phone number, your best friend's phone number?" We almost always get those right!

I leave you with a silly picture, two silly ones, actually:

See, things don't change all that much in 35 years!

Take care, and thank you for stopping by Darling Hill
