Well, our nice warm weather has faded away and in came the cold. Dead leaves litter the yard and the wind picks them up and carries them. Everything has turned golden brown, yellow and gray. Since the leaves are no longer on the tree in our front yard more light floods into the house. When snow is on the ground it really gets bright. Below are some pictures of recent snows.
The Lord has me busy in ways I never expected. These days I am learning more about the heart of our Lord. I have learned that what He sees as very precious is people. He loves them so much. And there are so many hurting people, some of these people are in our churches. I have come to see that there is a very necessary need for encouragement.
The other thing that I have been trying to practice is blessing rather than cursing. I am practicing this while I am out driving. I was watching something on Christian TV and it really made an impact on me. The Lord is pleased when we are loving as He is. So if someone cuts me off on the road, etc., I ask God to bless that person. When I do I please my Father in Heaven. On top of that I am opening a door for the Lord to work. It is pretty awesome that something so small on our part can move mountains.
