In this mixed up world where evil seems to persist one often finds themselves searching for encouragement. This passage in Psalms has helped me...maybe it will you too. "Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good;  dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture."  Psalm 37: 1-3 (NIV) May all of you be encouraged this week. God Bless! Debbie    


Dear Friends we found autumn!  We took a lovely country ride and guess what...  we spotted some lovely color along with a few scarecrows to welcome in the season. So glad we found it. Thank you for taking time to stop and visit. Have a lovely week. Hugs Debbie

Where is Autumn?

Many of us in this part of the world have been asking where is autumn? Our vibrant fall colors are missing. The temperatures remain unseasonably warm. Summer flowers are still blooming... wip Even I have returned to painting spring subjects. Today the wind is blowing.   That often signals a change in the weather.  Just maybe it will bring some of autumn's glory.   Hope so! Take care friends and have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie

An Unusual Surprise

October brought an unusual surprise... a sweet violet blooming in autumn's sunshine.  They generally are one of April's gifts. Upon searching found three more bravely poking their heads above fall's debris. Just goes to show that each season may delight us with unusual surprises. Hope you enjoyed seeing a bit of spring in October. Have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie

Favorite Psalm

This week a dear friend in an email ask me if I had a favorite Psalm. I had to ponder this question a bit. There are 150 chapters to this beloved book. After careful consideration I chose Psalm 139. It begins with O Lord, you have searched me and you know me.  You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. " "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;  your works are wonderful, I know that full well... all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be... Search me, O God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts.  See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me in the way everlasting."  vs. 14 - 16 - 23 & 24. (NIV) Thank you for letting me share a favorite Psalm with you.   Hope if you have one - you will share too! Have a wonderful week. Hugs Debbie
