Happy First Day of Autumn!

James5-7-8--AutumnLake-AMP

Brothers and sisters,
be patient until the Lord comes again.
A farmer patiently waits for his valuable crop
to grow from the earth and for it to receive
the autumn and spring rains.

You, too, must be patient.
Do not give up hope,
because the Lord is coming soon.
—James 5:7-8

Give thanks to the Lord

Psalm107-1-AutumnLeaves

…..

This may be a little early for Thanksgiving, but it is good to thank the Lord every day for all He has graciously allowed us to have. Sometimes I even thank Him for what He has not allowed in my life because what I want may not be the best for me. And God always, always, always wants the best for us!

My Comfort in Suffering

This is my current desktop photo and I wanted to share it with you. I love the brilliant fall colors, which serve to accent this comforting and wonderful passage from Psalms.

Ps119-50-Fall

Remember your word to your servant,
    for you have given me hope.
My comfort in my suffering is this:
    Your promise preserves my life.      —Psalm 119:49-50

Hello Autumn!

I am originally from upstate New York but have been living in the Southwest since 1994. This saturation of autumn color is what I miss most about living in the Northeast. I have always loved the change of color during the cool autumns in the Adirondack Mountains not too far from where I grew up.

I know many of you have already done this but I guess it’s time for this girl to dress up our home for fall!

Oh, and let’s not forget the kind of comfort cooking and eating that is just too heavy to enjoy in the summer heat. Hmm… what shall I make first? Apple or pumpkin pie? Crock pot chili or stew?

How about you? What do you do to celebrate autumn?
