So Late So Soon

How did it get so late so soon?
It's night before it's afternoon.
December is here before it's June.
My goodness how the time has flewn!
How did it get so late so soon?

Dr. Seuss

I always like to quote this little poem on the first day of fall,which was today! And the time really HAS flewn this year! I will miss the light and the flowers and the warmth. What will you miss?

“Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.”
Joel 2

Me & The Rock Lady

Earlier this week, my friend Karen came over. She had something very special. A bag of unopened geodes and a  rock saw. You heard me right. We went on the porch and she sawed open the geodes to see what gems were inside. What fun! Look how close to she got her fingers to the saw!! She sawed them in half and this is what we got! The smokiness in the pictures is rock dust from the sawing.The next day my neighbor asked what that lady was doing on our porch with a bunch of rocks. I sad that she was sawing them in half. Her reply was...why would anyone want to saw rocks in half? HA ha ha..

“He made the water flow out of the rock for them; He split the rock and the water gushed forth.”
Isaiah 48

The White Ghost

Meet the White Ghost. Or more properly known as Crested Euphorbia Lactea. It looks like a huge white fan. It lacks the ability to respond to chlorophyll tissues, so cannot turn green. And all parts of it are poisonous. So beware the White Ghost....BOO!

“At about four o’clock in the morning, Jesus came toward them walking on the water. They were scared out of their wits. “A ghost!” they said, crying out in terror.”

Matthew 14

Six Years At The Pumpkin Patch

Here is six years of Anne Marie at the pumpkin patch! There is a new one every year, so I post them each year with one added! She is eight now, so somehow I am missing two years! These pictures were all taken by her mom.

 “For six years you are to sow your fields and harvest the crops…”

Exodus 23
