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.

Internet Connection

Due to internet connection being down at home was unable to post last evening.

Sending a quick hello from my computer at work.

May everyone have a blessed week.   Hope to be back to posting soon.

A lovely foggy morning arrived Saturday.

The distant hills were covered in mist.

As the sun rose it cast long shadows.

This big butterfly was just waking up to a new day.  Is he not beautiful?

These morning glories were getting prepared for his visit.

Shelby was more than happy to watch the sun rise. ..

And I was delighted to see this beautiful sky as
Saturday came to a glorious end.

Thank you for stopping to visit.   I hope everyone's Saturday was wonderful.

Oh my the month of August has zoomed by.   It was a busy time here.

While I was bird watching the garden grew wild and tangled.  It definitely could use a bit of pruning.

Those peaches that I thought would all be gone because  the resident groundhog was stealing them...well he left me plenty...the last of them ended up in these peach crumb muffins.

 The neighbor's generous gift of zucchini made its way into pickles.
Some sketching and plein air painting
was done.
Pastel painting and Watercolor sketch

So much for those "lazy days of summer".  Maybe if I hurry I can find them.

Looks like maybe these two did.

Enjoy what is left of August before it zooms by.   See you in September.

Out of the Nest

Look who made it out of the nest!

What a face? 

Perhaps next year this one will return to build it's own nest...maybe close by.   

Hope all of you will be back too.   Have a delightful week.

Another Nest

Can you believe it - another nest.   This one is located in a tree right above our deck.

I may not have a "bird's eye" view but it certainly is much easier to keep tabs on the activities that are happening.

Baby Robin
There are two baby robins.  From time to time they will get brave and poke their little heads out.  Mama and Papa are busy bringing them a daily supply of worms.

Perhaps I may get a chance to see these two fledglings take their first flight.   Hoping so!

It seems like this summer has brought quite a bit of bird watching my way.

Reading many of your comments it appears some of you are getting the same opportunities.

So from one bird lover to another - have a blessed week.

Hugs Debbie

"And God said, "Let there be light," 
and there was light.

God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.
(Genesis 1:3-4) NIV

May your week be filled with His light. 

Hugs Debbie
