more frosty pics from yesterday morning.

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life,
to mind your own business
and to work with your hands....
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders
and so that you will be dependent on anybody.
1 Thes 4:11-12

early morning.

heavy frost on the flowers.

each beautiful leaf is edged in white.

Better the little that the righteous have
then the wealth of many wicked;
for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord upholds the righteous.
Ps. 37:16-17

Had a great afternoon yesterday visiting
with DD, DIL and the 'grandson'!
This is the fiber content for today:
I knitted while I visited!

flock after flock after flock
of Buzzards went by.

I hate to see them go for the season,
but I know they will be back again
in no time!

May the words of my mouth
and mediation of my heart
be pleasing in Your sight,
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
Ps. 19:14

Once one Robin found the
Pokeweed Berries...

He invited a friend...

then a few more friends showed up!!
Early morning feeding frenzy!

By the word of the Lord were the heavens made,
their starry host by the breath of His mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea into jars;
He puts the deep into storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the Lord,
let all the people of the world revere Him.
Ps. 33:6-8

Early summer daisy's.

For the word of the Lord is right and true;
He is faithful in all He does.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of His unfailing love.

So VERY thankful that all the stuff
that fell from the sky the last 2 days
wasn't white!

I got POINTS!!
And a PRIZE!!
(thanks to Afton from KnitTalk!)

From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind;
from His dwelling place He watches all who live on earth-
He who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do.
Ps. 33:13-15

A very dreary, wet day yesterday.
Plans were changed and I got to spend the day
making progress on a sweater!

Fear the Lord, you His saints,
for those who fear Him lac nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Ps. 34:9-10

falling leaves getting caught in the rose bush.

a bit color that just pops right out at this
time of year!

not too many little critters still hanging around,
but get some photo shoots in before they all hide for
the winter!

You are my hiding place;
You will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.
Ps. 32:7

I got to sit outside and do some knitting yesterday
afternoon. I know that my days to be outside are
numbered! It won't be long before the snow
is piling up!

This woodpecker joined me for a while.
He was quite noisy, but it was good to
see him!

I am hoping that as the weather changes, I can
get back on the exercise bike, which is
where I make these loomed hats.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord, not for men,
since you know that you will receive an inheritance
from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Jesus Christ you are serving.
Col. 3:23-24

Colors of the season!

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live in Him,
rooted and built up in Him,
strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness.
Col. 2:6-7

Moss Roses.
Beautiful in fall colors.

The BEST comfort food!

or strengthen the hands of evildoers.

Red Heart Soft Baby Steps yarn

Green Tomato Cake.
Absolutely WONDERFUL!

See to it that no one takes you captive
through hollow and deceptive philosophy,
which depends on human tradition
and the basic principles of the world
rather than Christ.
Col. 2:8

(taken through the front window)
Mr. Cooper Hawk stopped by
for a snack yesterday afternoon.
Good to see him.
It's been quite some time since
we've seen he's been around.

Praying Mantis.

Our new version of Potato Salad!
Cut and boil a full container of potatoes.
Put in frig.
We each make a container of dressing
that we want on it!

The Almighty is beyond our reach
and exalted in power;
in His justice and great righteousness,
He does not oppress.
Job 37:23

the butterfly hatched!

last night was a full moon!
so very bright and still.
I would like to have seen all the activity
that goes on after humans go to sleep!

This knitted afghan was purchased at a garage sale
with the intention of frogging it and using the yarn
for hats and scarfs. But it is so wonderful, that
it was given to me to be handed on to someone
who needs a warm blanket as is!

As God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved,
clothe yourselves with compassion,
kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Col. 3:12

looks like we will have a butterfly soon!

crocheted baby afghan
made by Christina!

Therefore, do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink,
or with regard to a religious festival,
a New Moon
celebration or a Sabbath Day.
These are a shadow of the things that were to come;
the reality, however, is found in Christ.
Col. 2:16-17

Wait for the Lord;
