Be Grateful and Thankful



Next week is Thanksgiving!

This year is going by so swiftly.

Let's be grateful and thankful for 
all we are blessed with, God's Love,
family and friends.







"A person with a thankful heart is ONE who's
had an experience with The Lord Jesus Christ,
that has absolutely Transformed their life." 

Charles F. Stanley

Have a Blessed Day!

OUR LIGHTHOUSE



Charity Island Lighthouse


In Michigan in the waters of Lake Huron, is an island called Charity Island. On this island stands a Lighthouse. The Lighthouse has stood for many 
years and provided navigational aid and as a safe
harbor for those sailing the waters.  The island received the name "Charity" because sailors believed it was there "through the charity of God".

We have to navigate through storms of circumstances sometime in our lives.  Like the sailors that needed guidance on those stormy waters, we sometimes need and seek a safe harbor. 

"He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven"
Psalms 107:29-30


We don't ask for the storms that comes into our lives but they can cause us to appreciate the guidance and refuge that God provides. He offers us the light of His Holy Spirit and His Word to guide us during those times. It is a safe harbor of His love, from those storms that we seek. He alone can be our "Charity Island".


"The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble.
He cares for those who trust in Him."
Nahum 1:7


Today we can become confused or doubt when we read or hear others talk about things that they believe that may be different from what we've been taught and believe to be the truth and can  cause a storm in us. Always seek the truth in God's Word, the bible, and through prayer. We can always find shelter in His love.

Heavenly father, help me to seek your light to guide me and keep me through those storms in my life. Amen

Have a Blessed Sunday

Friday Foto Friends




I think this week was the last time
to see the fall leaves, although they
haven't been as bright and shiny as in
the past years, they were still a sight 
to see.




I love winding roads and this day was a blessing!
Driving through the park and seeing the leaves and I stopped at the overlook and got a photo of the sky.

On Saturday my family, all that could, went to the nearby town for my daughter's birthday. We had lunch at an Italian restaurant then shopped for awhile. The mall had up a huge Christmas tree.






The trees were pretty there also.
It rained all day yesterday so most of the leaves have fallen (onto my car)!

Have a Blessed Day!

We Waited Impatiently



Good Monday morning,
I love fall and all the beautiful color
it brings....but if only we could learn
to wait more patiently for them to come each
year.






We waited patiently  impatiently
for the leaves to turn.
Now they are falling to the ground.









Have a Blessed Fall Day!

Photo's for Friday Foto Friends


Yesterday was a beautiful day to get out and enjoy
some time with Mother Nature.
Here is some photo's taken at Sprewell Bluff Park just a few miles from where I live.

            The leaves are just turning, so pretty!














This is the overlook for the Flint River.
It is a blessing to have such a beautiful park
to visit and only a 10 minute drive.






And I have to include a sky photo 
from there!






Hope you enjoyed the afternoon with me
at one of my favorite parks. It isn't a State
Park, it's own by the county.


Won't you join me there.

Have a Blessed Day!
Sylvia
