Sometimes we have "October's"
Sometimes we have "October's" !!
Unlike September with it's many joy's October was full of some sad days...
I love the coming of fall as it is such a joy to know the wonderful
Holiday season is arriving....
but his year my mind was on other things..
November has to be better..right?
Say "Yes, of course it will!"
Stephen is haveing some pretty serious problems with his neck as a result of a car accident in May.
Pray for him to completely recover..
The good news about that is we found out what most of the trouble is.
Our Cockatiel Sammie died for no apparent reason, she was only 7..
We just have no idea what happened ..one minute she was fine and then she was gone!!
Then 4 days later My sweet dog Jainie was hit by a car and suffered
a broken hip which she could have survived but her diaphram was ruptured and the vet said he did not think surgery would save her..
So very sad..I will miss her, she was a real sweetie!!
Her 3rd birthday was the 1st of Oct.
And during all of this time I had a "bug" and felt terrible...
I am feeling much better today even if I don't sound like it to my family.(..cough..cough..)
My Sister told me "bugs" are two weeks coming and two weeks going..
She may be right!!
Life is full of ups and downs and hills and valleys...
But no matter what we walk through our Lord is ever present and a constant source of comfort and strength.
Our refuge in the dark places in our lives.
I love this Psalm...
Psa 27:1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psa 27:2 When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon
me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
Psa 27:3 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not
fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
Psa 27:4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek
after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my
life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
Psa 27:5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his
pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall
set me up upon a rock.
Psa 27:6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies
round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices
of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
Psa 27:7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also
upon me, and answer me.
Psa 27:8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee,
Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
Psa 27:9 Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in
anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O
God of my salvation.
Psa 27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD
will take me up.
Psa 27:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path,
because of mine enemies.
Psa 27:12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for
false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out
Psa 27:13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness
of the LORD in the land of the living.
Psa 27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall
strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
With all the joys (hopfully ) of Thanksgiving and the preparation for
It is an excting time and joyous time of the year!!
With our minds and our hearts set on the Lord we are flooded with
peace and joy!!
