We've been given one more fabulous Saturday morning with a sunny sky above the temperatures in the eighties today and I guess we couldn't ask for any better weather this time of the year. Make the most of it and try to get out and enjoy what is before you with nature's splendor at its best and always give credit to God above for it. We owe everything to Him. Later one will get out on our patio, pull out a chair from the table, sit down and take in the beautiful view of the mountain behind our house. Might see a deer or two and maybe a few turkeys I'm hoping. At least the peacefulness of the day will be worth it all to me. It does us good to stop and pause and reflect on how to stop and pause and reflect on how wonderful God is each and everyday and how He is always there for us.
Chloe Evelyn Bogle doing some better, when I talked with her this week. Also Fay Pitts doing a little better. Love good news don't you? Do though still keep them in prayer.
There are several other people we need to keep praying for: Ruth Brown, Edith Miller, Kathy Martin, Tracy Neal, Gracie Bratcher, Alene Ferrell, Denise Stanton, and Carlon and Mai Nell Melton.
Betty Sue Hullett visiting with me on Saturday. We both enjoyed that.
Wayne Gunter gave me a copy of his new book titled "Santa Clause Celebrates Easter" at the Gunter Reunion and I've gotten started on reading it. This is book three of the Santa Series. I know it will be good as he is such a good writer.
Little hummers still hanging around here. Pretty sure the feeders will have to come down this week. Hate to see them leave but I know they have to. I'll put out a welcome mat for them next spring when it is about time for their annual arrival up here on the mountain.
Sunday evening and a whole lot of football game on the TV. Every team I have been for is getting beaten pretty badly. That old saying "you win some - you lose some" applies to my teams today. Oh well, maybe next week they will play a lot better.
Rick and Beverly Hubler stopped by here lately as I was putting out some fall decorations. This seems to be a little bit earlier that I am doing this but others have already got their fall displays really looking good. With pumpkins, all those different colored mums, cornstalks with bows and or ribbons - when they are brought together quite a statement of beauty for everyone to see. This really adds to the festive look of the fall scenery up here on the mountain this time of the year. We all know fall is here -- some of us especially your truly just really dreading the winter season that comes after it.
Also this time of the fall season being dry as of late around here, simply good for the slowing down of having to mow the yard so often. We all can relate to that and are not missing all that mowing as we do have other chores to do, if you're like me.
Seems like that are a lot of people these days going through a lot of hurt and sickness. Sending them a card of encouragement would probably make their day. If you have the chance, drop them a card or maybe just a note with a few lines in the mail to let them know you are thinking about them and are praying for them. For a person going through a sickness your card or note no doubt would bring a lot of comfort to brighten their day.
