...a lovely day

It is a lovely day when one gets to see

the sun set at the same time

the moon begins to rise.

Hope everyone had a lovely day.  Have a great week.

Nestling in

Like this dove I am beginning the nestling in process.  We went from 89 degrees on Monday to a high of 52 on Saturday.  It seems as if autumn's cooler temps came suddenly.

 Time to make a savory stew...

Light a candle...

and select something good to read.

May all of you have a blessed week.



P.S. Spending time "Looking up" for all those who were caught in the devastation of hurricane Michael.   I am sure there are many joining me .

Like this moth I am drawn to light.

Isn't it interesting in the account of creation light was the first thing God created.

"and God said "Let there be light.  God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness."  Gen.1:3 (NIV)

Many artists have commented that it is the light they desire to capture.

Light helps one to see clearly...

provides a healthy sense of well being...

and makes all living things flourish.

In the spiritual realm light is associated with goodness.

"You are the light of the world.   A city on a hill cannot be hidden.   Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on a stand and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in Heaven."   Matt. 5:14-16 (NIV)

May all of you enjoy the lovely gift of light this week.

God Bless

Apple Season

Once again it is apple season in our part of the world.

The varieties are many.

There are some excellent types for sauce and pie.  Others make a great snack.

These pictured are Honey Crisp.  They are delicious - sweetly tart and very crunchy.   Sliced and served with a spoonful of  peanut butter makes them a serious treat!

 Also they are a fun subject to paint from life.  Not necessarily easy for me but a wonderful challenge.

This month we have been studying the book of Genesis at Church.  Today some one mentioned Eve and the apple.  Unfortunately this is a misconception.  If one cares to to take a moment they would find the Bible says fruit.  That could mean a peach, a pear, a fig or many other types of fruits.  Possibly not even a fruit that we know today.    "When the woman saw that the fruit was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom she took some and ate it.  She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it." Gen. 3:6 (NIV)

Isn't it amazing how many of us like myself for years always considered it was an apple Eve ate.  Just goes to show how important it is to check out all the facts :)!

Well hope all of you enjoy a perfect apple this coming week.

The first full day of autumn came our way today.   The weather has cooled down a bit but the landscape still is holding on to summer.

Even the grass continues to grow.   Generally by this time of the year the mowing has slowed down but not this season. 

 So the calendar may say it is autumn but we are still enjoying summer a few more days.

Hope everyone has a beautiful week.

In this life we all face storms.  Some are more difficult than others.   Like many of you I have had my share.

What has always carried me through is knowing that God is not absent when the winds begin to howl and fear grips the heart.  "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Hebrews 13:5b (NIV)

This week once again we have seen another storm hit our shores in the U.S.   Florence is at the time of this writing bringing devastation to the Carolinas. 

There are several friends I blog with that live in the path of this hurricane.  Some of you reading this also have family and friends living along the coast that are in danger of losing their lives and homes.
Please take a moment with me to "Look Up" and pray for their safety.

Thank You!

Hugs Debbie

P.S.  I used to play this hymn at my church.   It comes to mind at this time.   Hope you will enjoy it.
