1st Cool Day

Today is the 1st day it was cool enough to wear fall clothes. I think we may be able to use a winter blanket tonight. I am trying to decide if it would be a stretch to build a fire tonight, though the wood may be too wet from the soaking it took last night.

I am having dreams of pansies and alyssum in my flower beds along with lettuce, broccoli, and spinach. I may even plant potatoes this fall. I plant the vegetables in big pots with a few flowers tucked around them. I am looking forward to buying lobelia, snapdragons, petunias, violas, and delphinium too. Time to scatter larkspur seeds.

Too bad I am not always as excited about planting God's Word in my heart as I am about planting in my flower beds. I love how fresh His Word is each time we read it. But I have lazy periods in which I do not spend time in the Word and with Him. Lazy periods always coincide with fatigue. I am worn out for no reason. I think I will blame it on hormone depletion.

So I think tonight, I will wrap up in an afghan and spend time in the Word with a cup of hot chocolate - sugar free of course.

Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables, saying: "A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. He who has ears, let him hear."

I want to be good soil...Jesus is coming, I want to be ready!

A warm cozy picture you paint. I have had the blanketrs out a couple of weeks now and the heat on in our house too! I spent the afternoon ( an hour or so) in the sunshine, wrapped in a blanket with the Word. It was nice!

Girl, you speak truth. I have my lazy (or willful) periods as well. (and the best of intentions). However, my heart is hungering for His Word and I am grateful that He places that hunger there.

(It's cool here too. I put more blankets on the bed this morning. Still haven't turned the heat on though.)

love,
karen

I don't want to turn the heat on, that smell the 1st time you run it is so awful!

You do paint a warm cozy picture! I totally agree with luvmy4sons.
Hormones can be tricky. One day you feel one way and the next, totally different.
Hang in there. Glad of the cool weather for you.

A blanket and His Word this morning are like a prescription for the soul. I just plain get excited on this day! Love you, Annette
