snow in the middle of the fall.  I like to catch photos like the above.  Winter come to settle on my fall deco.  Ironicy at it’s finest.  Makes me laugh!

I found some wonderful things to take pictures of on my doggy walk yesterday morning:

I have been reading a book called Ruthless Trust (The Ragamuffin’s Path to God) by Brennan Manning (Copyright 2000)  I am finding myself underlining, circling, astricking (is that a word?) and exclamation marking all through the book.  This is one excerpt from the book that I did just that to:

“Uncompromising trust in the love of God inspires us to thank God for the spiritual darkness that envelops us, for the loss of income, for the nagging arthritis that is so painful, and to pray from the heart, ‘Abba, into your hands I entrust my body, mind, and spirit and this entire day–morning, afternoon, evening, and night.  Whatever you want of me, I want of me, falling into you and trusting in you in the midst of my life.  Into your heart I entrust my heart, feeble, distracted, insecure, uncertain.  Abba,unto you I abandon myself in Jesus our Lord. Amen'”

Yes and AMEN!

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 41 years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, all the great people who bless my life, and for the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us. Oh! I am grateful for my two doggies too!!!
