Sunday's Thought

(C) StoryBlocks, Used by Permission

This year has gone by so fast.  Hard for me to believe this week will be Thanksgiving. 2017 has been one fast year. The old saying "time flies when you are having fun" hold very true. Or, the "older you get, the faster time flies."

As Thanksgiving approaches once again, I begin my usual thoughts of being thankful and what I am thankful for and what I am thankful.

I'm not much on material stuff or having the latest and greatest of anything. These things wear and tear or fall apart and are gone before you know it. Though, I thank God often for what He has provided in this life. Food, clothing, shelter, and the human needs of this life.

I am thankful for God, my wife, my dog, and friends. God has taken care of me throughout my life in ways I never would have imagined, especially at the time. I couldn't even begin to write or say enough great things about my wife, dog, and friends. They are the awesome in my life which I would miss if they weren't around.

As I go through this life, I've seen many people work to make as much money as possible so they can have the largest house, the nicest cars, and the best clothes. All fine for them, but those don't bring peace and contentment within your heart and your life as having God in your life will.

What seems like centuries ago, my parents took me to church every time the church doors were open. I was taught about Jesus, God, the Bible and the church.  As I learned, I became a Christian and followed Jesus throughout my life.

What are you thankful for?

Timeless Thursday: Fall's Paint Palate

"Fall's Paint Palate"

The beauty of fall can be found everywhere. Sometimes I capture the beauty of the brilliant colors by walking through my neighborhood with camera in hand.  Sometimes, it's a tree in someone's yard (be careful with this as you do not want to photograph something personal giving away the location of the  house or anything which indicates who lives on the property.)

Other times, I take a walk, as I used to do quite frequently at Walney Nature Center and capture God's beautiful handiwork in nature.

Wednesday's Words! Encouragement from God's Word

(C) Allen Pearson

"So we do not lose heart,
though our outer self
is wasting away,
our inner self is being
renewed day by day."
