31 Days of Faith, Family, Home and Joy -Day 30 – WELCOME November

1 Nov

WELCOME November!

Another beautiful month of October has past and it’s been a fun one.

I can’t believe how busy we have been with grandchildren.  We don’t take a moment with them for granted..  Many grandparents are not as fortunate with grandchildren living in another state or even another country.

We’ve been to the Dallas Arboretum

Six Flags Over Texas (no pictures to share)

a Fall carnival at church,

and the Shadow Oaks Pumpkin Patch 

with grandkids this month, and so many other smaller things as well as being blessed to watch them each week, and even the four year old got to stay with us three nights while his Mom and Dad were out of town.  Making MEMORIES.

I’ve had the house decorated since September, and it won’t come down until after we celebrate Thanksgiving.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love, love, love Christmas, but these days it really bothers me that the stores have already gotten rid of Fall decorations and forgotten about Thanksgiving.  I wish these stores were brave enough to not start Christmas in September/October.  I truly believe they are missing sales by rushing each season.  I went to buy fall stuff two weeks ago and let me tell you there was nothing left worth buying, and I’m not buying Christmas this early unless it is a gift for my family.

But all that said, I may start decorating the upstairs for Christmas since no one will be up there until Christmas Eve and it will help some of the rush and stress after Thanksgiving.

I’m trying to finish up my 31 days of October writings.  Life gets busy, but I’m only four behind this morning.  Since it’s November 1st I am pondering this morning on the word THANKFUL.

I’ve learned to be thankful every day, and even at times every moment.  November is the month most know for thankfulness, and I’m glad our pilgrim immigrants passed that down to us, and I hope as a Christian nation we remember that.  I’m glad that people still take the time to sit down and be thankful on Thanksgiving, but do worry the way that Christmas is thrown at us so early that some are beginning to just skip this precious time of the year.

What am I thankful for this first day of November 2017 not in any order:

  • My husband who loves the Lord.
  • My children who love the Lord and their spouses.
  • My five precious grandchildren.
  • Waking up to another November with good health.
  • The little bit of rain we had yesterday.
  • Sitting here in the dark and being able to write.
  • Therapy helping my back problems.
  • Proverbs 31 Online Bible studies and how that ministry has helped me grow in my Christian walk.
  • A warm home on this cool morning.
  • Grandchildren coming to spend the day with me today.
  • All my family – sisters, cousins, in-laws, aunts, uncles
  • How God has always blessed us with good neighbors.
  • Our church and extended church family.
  • Food on my table.
  • A hot cup of coffee this morning.

This list could go on and on.  Thank you for blessing me today by stopping by.  I would love to hear something you are thankful for today.

How many times have I read that verse and just rushed over it?  As I am reading through Proverbs and soaking one verse from each chapter, I am finding they have a much stronger impact.

It says do NOT boast about my tomorrows.  Wow have I done that – you bet I have – vacations, retreats, get-togethers way before they happened.  I find myself asking my Bible study friends, “What are you doing this weekend.”  A much more appropriate question would be after the weekend and ask them what they did over the weekend.

You and I are NOT guaranteed tomorrow.  As we plan our calendars and to-do lists we know God is already there tomorrow.  He knows what our tomorrow is going to look like. He knows those emergencies that are about to come up and when we are going to have to drop everything and minister.  He knows when He is going to place someone on our mind that needs an encouraging word.  He knows when the phone is going to ring, and how we will respond.

We see posters that say make it count, live for today, live life to it’s fullest, and we say things like “tomorrow I am going to work out, tomorrow I will start that diet, tomorrow I will eat healthier, tomorrow I am going to call that friend or relative I have not talked to in a very long time, tomorrow I’ll message her.”   TOMORROW, TOMORROW, TOMORROW!  What about TODAY?  What if tomorrow never comes?

“Yesterday is gone.  Tomorrow has yet to come.  We have only today.  Let us begin.”  Mother Teresa

Father may I wake up each day knowing I only have today.  AMEN!

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

31 Oct

IMG_8774lll

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.

IMG_8780

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:

IMG_8733-1

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.

IMG_8735-1

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