Sundial bridge on the Sacramento River
This was taken yesterday by the City of Redding on their X page. Fall is starting to show up in certain areas of town.
A tree in my front yard -
Same tree, but looking inside.
As you can tell by the other trees,
we still have the majority of leaves still hanging on...
My husband is painting today - the posts on our covered patio.
Seems we're always painting, doesn't it?
It started lightly raining so he's done for today.
On Wednesday mornings I attend Bible Study Fellowship - and we're studying the book of John. As you can see it is a big book - there is a lot of reading and studying.
A few days ago, I was invited to visit yet another bible study at a church 12 miles from me - out in the sticks.
Hey, why not?
So today I went and it was awesome. Wonderful group of women - I knew two of them and we're discussing the book of Job. There is no workbook - we read a chapter - we discuss and we pray.
BSF is a lot so I was hoping this study would be more of a discussion/prayer group and it was. I didn't want two big studies - So today was just what I needed.
During times like we are having, where should one be?
In His Word.
I am enjoying the rain which started just after I got home. So cozy. Tomorrow it will be around 77 - I am really liking this weather.
a few "projects" I want to do before Thanksgiving and before I start Christmas decorating.
I sanded my dining room table - so I need to stain it.
I need to start my Fall decorating...I am very late.
I have a little round table I wanted to sand and stain. (I figured I had the stain out, anyway right?)
I have a piano bench I want to sand, paint/stain and I was to add a covered cushion for extra seating.
Need to start buying my Thanksgiving meal so I am not buying it all at once.
I have some zucchini, banana, and pumpkin breads I want to bake in the little bread pans I bought at Dollar Tree to give out as gifts.
Of course, I am not going to stress out about it all because none of it is THAT important. Well, other than the meal. The rest is just "stuff". I can always throw a tablecloth over the table and no one will be the wiser -
I just need to keep myself busy and productive or else the cares of the world seem to land on my shoulders. I am sleeping much better at night by keeping busy - so I am thankful for that. I am one, that cannot look away or pretend something isn't happening, that is happening. It's how I was raised to always be informed. I just have to make sure I don't become consumed by it all. It's all about BALANCE, isn't it?
