Today I am grateful for the sparrows that visit...

the thin blanket of snow that covers the woodland floor...

the fragrant aroma of cinnamon and baked apples...

the time to tangle indoors

while outdoors winter comes a little early.

May everyone who is celebrating Thanksgiving this week have a blessed one.  To my all my friends everywhere hope you are finding lovely gifts of gratefulness.   

Hugs Debbie

Brief Visit

Autumn' s visit was brief... two weeks late when it arrived.  Gone before we could catch our breath.

It did not give us the usual vivid colors that we hope to see.  Many of the trees lost their leaves before turning.

(hubby's & my shadows)
 What it lacked in vibrant foliage though was made up by dramatic skies.

There was even a lovely rainbow to remind us that some things do remain the same.

Hope all of you are having a beautiful week.   Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.   I am mending and even hobbling about! 

God Bless

Some promises in this life get broken.  God's love is not one.    He always comes through even when we doubt.  Today I am spending time "looking up".

Please have a wonderful day.  Hope you will " look up" too and catch a glimpse of His love!

Hugs Debbie

P.S. speaking of broken - last week I managed to slip in the mud and break my ankle.   Maybe some of you will "look up" for me too! :)

Sometimes there are no words to express the deep sadness that  one feels for the victims of  vile crimes of hate.  My heart breaks for all those who are suffering not only in Pittsburgh, Pa. tonight but wherever evil exists.

"Looking up" !  Hope you will join me.

...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)

Watercolor sketch
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
