31 Days of Faith, Family, Home and Joy -Day 27 – Pumpkins Galore

31 Oct


I love Fall, and I love the darkness in the morning studying.  I love this verse, and as I read it today I did give thanks for our adult children, their spouses, and our five grandchildren.  Look at those two boys – cousins as we visited the Dallas Arboretum recently.

I love Fall decorating almost as much as I do Christmas decorating.  It’s fun seeing the grandkids walk in and saying, “Nana’s got pumpkins”.

This year we have been to see pumpkins at two places – the Dallas Arboretum and Shady Oaks Pumpkin Patch.   We went to Six Flags and our church carnival.  This was all in three weeks.  My husband told me I should have enough of pumpkins this year.  Honestly, I love them and there are ceramic ones all over the house, and real ones outside with mums.

Pumpkins these days come in all shapes and sizes.


Just look at that pictures and the wonders of those boys and all those different pumpkins as different as you and I!

Pumpkins are no longer just orange.  Just look at all these we saw.  They come in so many colors – white, browns, greens, hints of yellow, orange:


Pumpkins are smooth.  They are bumpy and warty.  The are all sorts of things.  In the picture below the white bumpy ones (light orange) are called peanut pumpkins, and the orange ones behind are called knucklehead pumpkins.


So many different kinds of pumpkins.  So much fun seeing them.






His mercies are new every day.  His grace abounds.

28 Oct


Are you thankful today for God’s beautiful treasures?  I think of just the treasure of waking up every single morning and saying, “Good morning Lord.”  I love the treasure of prayer that He gave us so that we could communicate, and I have to admit I don’t use it as much as I should.  I do pray in the morning and the evening, and all through the day when someone comes to mind or as I’m doing housework thanking Him for my family and all He’s given us.  I find myself when I’m at school subbing praying as I sit and watch the children work.

I am thankful for this beautiful Fall season.  I am thankful for all seasons and love being in a state where we see seasons, but they don’t last long.  It can be in the 20s one day and the 70s the next.  You can’t beat that.  I love seeing the winds blowing some days right now, but not everyday.  I love watching the leaves falling and blowing across the yard and the trees just starting to change.  In Texas we don’t see those beautiful colors until November, but they are starting and I enjoyed driving to pick up my grandson today and seeing some of those changes.

As I reflected this evening on things I am thankful for, I wanted to stop and look up some Bible verses to write down about thankfulness so here they are.  I hope you enjoy them.

Psalm 95:2 (KJV) – Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Psalm 100:4 (KJV) – Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

Psalm 105:1 (KJV) – O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.

Psalm 107:1 (KJV) –  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Colossians 3:15 (KJV) -And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV) – In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Ephesians 5:20 (KJV) –  Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Philippians 4:6 (KJV) –  Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

2 Corinthians 9:15 (KJV) – Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

Philemon 1:4 (KJV) –  I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
