1. Last week I shared how I bought some new dishes for fall, but missed my opportunity to buy goblets to match them. Well, I found glasses that match with the dishes pretty well, so decided to get them, too. They weren't my first choice, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow. So, here is a picture of my new plates and glasses along with my famous pumpkin placemats!
2. Here's a picture of the scenery outside the door where I work. I love when the leaves turn colors!
3. Last week's Ladies Retreat went so well. We had an amazing speaker who was very humorous. I always think you get your point across better with humor. More importantly, the presence of the Lord was felt strongly.
4. Food for thought:
"The life we live on earth is merely practice for heaven. So why is it so difficult at times to maintain our spiritual growth and press on toward our goal? We get distracted by the world, we get lazy in our effort, and we live in a culture that demands immediate gratification rather than appreciating long-term goals" … from David Jeremiah, Turning Point Devotionals
5. Home made Amish butter mints - I bought some this past summer when we visited Amish country. Sad to say, my stash is almost depleted. But I can order from them and they will ship to me those little morsels of buttery perfection.
