I'm a Winner!

Just look at all the lovelies I received from Kelley in
a recent giveaway she held!

A Harvest bag held a wonderful Gooseberry Patch Autumn
Cookbook, a container full of Pumpkin Spice tea,
Spicy scented candles and soap (is that homemade, Kelley?),
a sweet knitted and crocheted cloth
and some delicious lotion!
All sent with love!
Won't you all head over there and say "Hi"?
She's a real sweetheart!
Thanks so much, Kelley,
my home smells delightful with the
soap and candles,
and hopefully soon with some tasty
selections from the cookbook!
Yep! I'm a winner ~ not just the goodies
but a new blogging friend, too!

In Loving Memory

of those who served and are serving
in our military.



"Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life
for his friends."
John 15:13
A Soldier's Psalm
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in who I trust!"
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper,
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
Or of the arrow that flies by day;
Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
A thousand my fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not approach you.
You will only look on with your eyes,
And see the recompense of the wicked.
For you have made the LORD, my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
No evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your tent.
For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.
They will bear you up in their hands,
Lest you strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
"Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
"He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him, and honor him.
"With a long life I will satisfy him,
And let him behold My salvation."
Psalm 91

White Wednesday
Outdoor Wednesday

When Gentleman Farmer arrived home from work,
he asked if I would like to go for a walk
in the woods behind our house.
Perhaps you would like to join us?


The sun is almost set.

The golden rays cast a shimmering light on the Maples.

Our little town, across the water





moss and lichen...

embellish the woodland floor.

And then...



"And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide:"
Genesis 24:63

As the Deer...

"As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So my soul pants for Thee, O God!"
Psalm 42:1
