I am doing a 30 Days of Thankful book this year with Cathy Zielske. Check out Cathy’s blog for her challenge . . . you can find Cathy’s 2013 templates here in the Designer Digitals store in 4 sizes! I’m using the 6” x 8” size and plan on having them spiral bound I am thinking right now . . . I might change my mind!! A woman’s prerogative is to change her mind at any given moment, isn’t it?


Day 03: “So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:6-8
Today is All Saints Day. It is so moving when members of the congregation ring bells for the members of our church who have died in the past 12 months. I love the song which we sang today . . . “For All the Saints Who From Their Labors Rest”. We remembered our wonderful Sunday school teacher for 34 years, Lillian, her daughter Lizbeth & Harry Wagoner, all members of our class today.

Day 04: “It’s leaves were beautiful and its fruit abundant, and in it was food for all. The beasts of the field found shade under it, and the birds of the heavens lived in its branches, and all flesh was fed from it.” ~Daniel 4:12
I am so grateful to have such a lovely place to walk, especially when I am too lazy walk anywhere else . . . we feel so blessed in this season to have the beautiful fall leaves to enjoy even though it is but for a short time. A couple of times to the mailbox and back to take or pick up the mail is quiet a jaunt!.
