Silver Sunday

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- a great white egret on the pond this morning, even though it scared Ella when it flew up off the pond behind her, and she barely missed running into me.

- that Ella is so careful that she tried really hard not to run into me.

- mornings that are cooling down as summer winds down, with dew-wet grass that shows the dogs' tracks as they run across the yard. I love fall and I'm savoring every sign that it's coming soon.

- the apples on our trees that are just days away from being ripe. We're looking forward to our favorite apple desserts, jars of apple jelly on the cupboard shelves, and frozen apple slices for smoothies. in the meantime, the horses are enjoying the windfalls. They're not crazy about carrots and other treats but they love apples.

- our county fair is over!

Silver Sunday

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and 
believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:9 NIV
