The Turning of Pages in Life

Hello Friends,
It has, indeed, been a while since I have made an entry....But, I have thoroughly enjoyed my summer. I've spent time with my Lord, family and friends. Oh, and how I have been reading new and interesting books! I guess you could call this past few months a "turning of the page" in my life. This month, we will become empty-nesters, as my youngest leaves for college. My husband and I have been thinking about how life will change and what we will do with its changes. My thoughts are centering on short trips to different parts of the map and my husband is concentrating on working less. This is an exciting time and I will embrace all of the new adventures that are sure to grace my path. How many of you are taking-on and welcoming the "turning of pages" in your lives? 


Scripture

Jeremiah 29:11New International Version (NIV)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine~


Good Morning Friends,
Yesterday, I set-out a few flowers and put all of my pots together. This is the latest I have ever waited to get my summer gardening started. As I spent the day working in my yard, there was a contentment and oneness that can only come from the Lord. There was a gentle summer breeze all day long and my spirit drank-in the day, as though it was a tall glass of cold water. I was thirsty for the Lord, the silence and the outside work. In Denver, the blooms are a little late, compared to the Midwest and South. Most of my flowers have not bloomed, but just seeing the small buds and foliage is enough to make me smile. Here are a couple of photos of my work, yesterday. It's a work in progress! Much Joy!!!!





Scripture

Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
    and his courts with praise;
    give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.
