For Today -

Outside my window... Pitch black as 11.00pm! I am getting a really late start to my post today.

I am thinking... About the lovely day I had yesterday. I went to Banbury to browse the stores in the afternoon with my daughter Natalie,my grandson Taio and my hunny Micheal. On the way home Michael and I stopped off at Lower Heyford and walked the countryside and by the canal. I got some lovely photos-camera always at the ready! Judy-it was wonderful to visit where we went to church for so many years. Sadly the church building is now gone and it was so barren there!

I am thankful for... The Lord's blessings. He is so good and I am ever thankful.I have been reflecting on life's challenges and I have  so much to be thankful for. It is so good to have an attitude of gratitude. I am thanking the Lord in advance for what He is going to do and my prayers yet to be answered.I am thinking of this bible verse:

Continue in prayer,and watch in the same with thanksgiving.
                                              Colossians 4:2

From the learning rooms...I am still a work in progress and I am learning each and every day.

From the kitchen... Just a snack as late now. I am thinking I will go and make a hot chocolate drink with marshmallow topping and a little cinnamon!

I am wearing... My pj's.

I am creating... A photograph album of Fall.I just love this season and I love to capture the beautiful colours. Yesterday I added more pictures to my collection.

I am going... To watch some recorded shows and then go to bed.

I am reading... My bible and a beautiful devotional book given to me by a very sweet and treasured friend.I was so grateful to receive this and it made my day!

I am hoping...That soon I will have a resolution and closure on my job situation. I have to take an enormous leap of faith with this.Praying and hoping.

 I am hearing...Just the laptop keys as I type.

 Around the house...Angels everywhere! I love my angel collection of figurines and many books.

One of my favorite things... Just chilling out! I have come to love these times.They were not very frequent in the past due to long working hours and now I enjoy the opportunity when it comes around!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Appointments. Letter writing as I find myself behind again!  Spending time with my daughters

Here is a picture thought I am sharing... A couple of pictures from my country walk.

    Beautiful photos shared and enjoy putting together your fall collection of colors but most importantly enjoy your family time and time with JESUS.

    Blessings and hugs Sis

  2. Hi Linda...well, it's 1:18am here, & I have just given up on posting in my SWD. I typed out the post & lost it! I was so sad. Anyway, too late to do it again.

    So glad to hear that you had such a lovely day. Did you take pictures of where our church once stood? If so, please send. That's such a sad thought...many memories of 399! :-)

    I'm so glad that you are enjoying the devotional. I pray that it is a huge blessing to you.

    Loved the photos as always! Hope you have a lovely day Linda. Looking forward to my email later. Love you!
