I had to start a fire in the stove this morning because it was chilly which reminded me that I will be doing this for many months to come :(
I am trying very hard to be content.  This time of year is gorgeous.  From the changing of the leaves to the geese honking and flying south.  BUT I know what is next and I KNOW that I don't like it.....
  OK, so how can I be thankful?  Even though I dread the coming cold and snow.
Well, I have a beautiful house my husband built for me, clothes to wear and more than enough food to eat.  My family loves me and those who no longer live here actually want to talk with me at least once a week.  My church family is wonderful.  Most importantly God knows me better than anyone else and STILL loves me.
Thankfully I'm reminded that all this here is just temporary.  I have an eternal home in  heaven.  But for now, I must "bloom where I am planted".  I will try, with God's help, to do just that :)

  1. Love love love the photo of the autumn scenery!!! Thanks for sharing. Will pray God gives you the grace to get through the winter, and me the grace to get through missing the winter. :-) Life sure is funny.

  2. After years of dealing with this "trust" thing, I have finally come to the conclusion that, YES, God can be trusted, no matter what things seem. He sees the whole picture...we only see a little. After a hard trial, I've been able to "see" it God's way, for I've seen results only HE could do because of the trial. Does not make hard times easier, but it IS easier when HE goes with you through them.
