A Difficult Place




"I will never leave you nor forsake you."
Hebrews 13:5


When I found myself in A Difficult Place this week, it sure wasn't were I wanted to be.
You see my hubby and I go on Wednesday to have our car washed in the town 30 minutes from where we live. It's $2.00 less on this day. After the people were finished with our car, I drove off and as I looked from right to left then right again, I saw a car and a semi truck coming in the distance. I had time to get into the lane but when I turned into the lane my gas paddle seemed to be stuck. I couldn't get it to go, I glanced again to see where the semi and car that was in this lane was. It was very close, so I tried again but it would only go a few inches, it seemed. I said a prayer quickly and then looked again and thankfully and praise God the car and semi had come to a stop, waiting for me to "get out of the way".
I put my foot at the top of the gas paddle and it took off. I pulled into a parking lot and got out to see what was wrong. The car wash people had put my car mat over the gas paddle and the brakes causing me to be unable to use them properly.


" I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."
Matthew 28:20

My Lord was certainly with us that day! I can't praise Him enough!

"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee',
"The Lord is my helper....."
Hebrews 13:5,6




There are lots of people in the Bible that found themselves in a difficult place.. Abraham for one, when God asked him to sacrifice his son Issac. Abraham found himself in a difficult place.
  Philip when he was happy were he was but God told him to go to Samaria, where Saul had made havoc of the church, and preach.
These difficult times enlarges our faith and brings us closer to Him.
God is with us in the bad times as well as the good times. Call on Him and Praise His Holy Name!


May your Day be Blessed!

Fall leaves







One of Life's pleasures that I enjoy is the beauty that each season brings. Fall leaves is one of such beauty!
So Wednesday my hubby and I drove over to Pine Mountain again to see if the leaves were in their usual fall colors.


This is what we saw. The leaves were turning brown and falling!
I do Love the winding roads, they bring back childhood memories.







Although there's beauty there, it isn't like it is normally. These are photo's on top of Dowdell's Knob atop Pine Mountain.





Back home on our street!
We do have some trees that are changing. I think the dry weather has hindered their color this year.






I'm joining Deb at Breathing In Grace for Friday Foto Friends. Want you hop over and join the party!



Have a Blessed Fall Day!

Fall Break Mini Vacation




Last week was fall break so we rented a cottage at F.D. Roosevelt State Park and invited our girls and grandchildren, that could, to go with us.

I love the old stone building where you check in.
The hanging light is so pretty.





In the back of the building, is an overlook.







Information sign


The days were cool so it was nice to have a fire in the fire ring, each day to roast marshmallows.



The girls (and boys) love to kayak. There's the runaway paddle boat. It didn't go far though, the breeze kelp pushing it back to shore.


 
My daughter, Susan and granddaughter, Morgan, laid down in their kayak's  and drifted all over the lake. The water was so pretty.







My grandsons JC and Joshua was fishing across the lake but you aren't able to see them. I love how the sun made the shadows of the trees on the ground.


The geese came out to meet us, really they just wanted to be fed.

We love this state park it's only a short drive from where we live, so we try to go as often as we can. It's always more exciting and enjoyable when the family can go with us. We all had a great time and didn't want to leave!

Have a Blessed Day!

In the Eye of the Storm






Please pray for the People that live along the coast of these states that are in danger due to Hurricane Matthew! 








"Take my Hand"

When the storms of life are raging
And there's trouble 'cross the land;
We can almost hear Him whisper,
Precious children "Take my Hand".

There's no sickness, I can't conquer;
There's no storm, I cannot calm;
For I paid for all your trials,
With the nail-prints in My palm.


(Short version of the poem)


Be Blessed!
Sylvia
