"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners...But his delight is in the law of the Lord...he is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither." Psalm 1Oh, I just can't wait to say.... PRAISE GOD FOR THIS AUTUMN WEATHER!!! It has been in the 50's here all week, with rain off and on, white overcast sky, breezy, and absolutely, positively PERFECT. I.LOVE.THIS.WEATHER.
I feel like I'm coming back to life. Thank you, God.
And I'm very thankful today for the week we've had around here. The girls' school closed unexpectedly due to a very high number of sick kids, so we had a 5-day weekend! We've been utterly couch-potatoish, playing lots of games together and just having fun doing mostly nothing. I'm sorry to see school start again tomorrow.
I'm also Praising God for this wonderful season that really brings out the baker in me. It's time for all things seasonal and sweet and rich! Everything just smells so good in autumn, don't you think?
Praise God that we're all healthy. Thank you.
And I'm Praising God for the hot cocoa I shared with my girls yesterday. They were both so tickled that I gave them hot cocoa in coffee cups... they said, "Oooh, grown-up cups! Thanks, Mom!" How cute is that?
Well, I could go on and on this morning. Can't wait to read all your Praises to God on this fabulous weekend. In case you hadn't noticed, I'm an autumn/winter girl. Finally ~ finally, the oppressive heat of summer has passed, and I can breathe again!
Have a wonderful day and a blessed week ahead! May our Father's richest blessings be with each of you!
P.S. Let me know what you think of the makeover... is it too much on your eyes? Or is it just ugly?? Just trying to spice things up around here and add a little seasonal color.
