  Autumn Antics

Genesis 8:22 

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”

    A few of my favorite fall things-

                                   Of course, kitty cats-

                                 watching the leaves swirl
leaf gathering 
raking leaves
  Hosea 10:12  

Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for it is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you.
a bountiful harvest
  picking out pumpkins

* why does this remind me of Sarah Marie, ready to bake a home-made pumpkin pie?

 Home Sweet Home

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; ..

Nothing More Beautiful

                         ~ Grace Gift ~
                       Being In His Presence

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written, "For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered." 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord

 Blog-time with Papa. When I come here, it's a special place, a special time. Time spent with my Maker; time spent praising Him; time spent  sharing with others the  joy and peace I get from Him. Time to share with all the Who, What, Where, Why ,and When in my life.
For a couple of weeks, I was experiencing internet difficulties and was not able to access my blog. The time away from here in no way stopped me from spending time with Him, but I did miss coming here with Him... So, thank You, Papa.... for even though nothing will ever separate You from me, I'm still thankful for this outlet of love.

Heavenly Father we praise Your name this day, we thank You for Your peace and joy, for Your grace and mercy toward us.  For nothing can separate us from Your love Lord, You are worthy of it all, there's nothing more beautiful than being in Your presence.

Praise Him in His mighty heavens.

praise Him for His abundant greatness.
3 Praise Him with trumpet blast;
praise Him with harp and lyre.
4 Praise Him with tambourine and dance;
praise Him with flute and strings.
5 Praise Him with resounding cymbals;
praise Him with clashing cymbals.
6 Let everything that breathes praise the Lord.

Psalm 150

1. Praise the LORD.
Praise God in his sanctuary;

2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.

3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,

4 praise him with tambourine and dancing,

praise him with the strings and flute,

5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.

6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
Praise the LORD.
