For it is not those who hear the law
 who are righteous in God's sight, 
but it is those who obey the law 
who will be declared righteous.

So happy to have the hummers still here!

The sparrows are enjoying the weeds 
we never got around to pulling during the summer!

"Lift up  your eyes to the heavens, 
look at the earth beneath;
the heavens will vanish like smoke,
the earth will wear out like a garment
and its inhabitants die like flies.
But My salvation will last forever,
My righteousness will never fail."
Is. 51:6

The complete and utter joy of a child
with a fresh muddle puddle. 

A sweater for me!
It's been a few years since I've made a sweater
for myself. Been planning it for a while!
Top-down raglan.
The yarn is Red Heart 100% wool 
and was bought 
for me at an estate sale several years 
ago by my Aunt Katie.  

Listen, my dear brothers;
Has not God chosen those 
who are poor in the eyes of the world
 to be rich in faith
 and to inherit the kingdom 
He promised those who love Him?
James 2:5

Another life lesson from a flock of chickens:
This is Wally. He doesn't realize that he looks different 
from all the other birds, and doesn't seem to have a 
clue that he is only half their size. 

A meeting of the minds
at mid-day. 

In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength.

Our first meal at our new, beautifully handcrafted table.
My Honey is so very talented!
Woods used include planks and beams from the old barn
and solid oak trim from the house. 
The stories this table could tell....
and the memories yet to be made...

The petunias are winding down.
They know the season is nearly over.

for the scrap yarn!!
Wonderful hat material!

Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
He rises to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for Him!
Is. 30:18

who earnestly seek Him.

The quiet words of the wise 
are more to be heeded

Waiting for lunch...
Wrapping up lunch!!

When God gives any man wealth and possessions,
and enables him to enjoy them,
to accept his lot and be happy in his work-
this is a gift of God.
He seldom reflects on the days of his life,
because God keeps him occupied with gladness of heart.
Ecc. 5:19-20
