October 2017



In celebration of Fall, I thought I would share something that I originally posted on October 30, 2017. I hope that you enjoy reading it!

Psalm 92:14 (ESV)
they still bear fruit in old age;   they are ever full of sap and green,
Job 12:12 (ESV)
12 Wisdom is with the aged, and understanding in length of days.
Psalm 71:18 (ESV)
18 So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation,  your power to all those to come.

                              THE BEST SEASON OF ALL

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the nice crisp mornings and the cool evenings of the season. By the time fall rolls around, the children have been back in school for a few weeks and life is back on track. Fall is also the beginning of the Hot Chocolate Season, fuzzy sweaters, light jackets, caps, and football. I don’t know about your house, but at my house football is a Big Deal! Fall festivals are also quite popular this time of year,  as well as County and State Fairs, candied apples, corn dogs, cotton candy and don’t forget those delicious funnel cakes that also add to the excitement.


Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Ephesians 1:11-12 (NIV)
11 In him we were also chosen,[a] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory.
Exodus 9:16 (NIV)
16 But I have raised you up[a] for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.
Exodus 31:3-5 (NLT)
I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts. He is a master craftsman, expert in working with gold, silver, and bronze. He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft!
1 Peter 4:10-11 (NLT)
10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. 11 Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.
God has a plan and a purpose for your life and the talents and gifts that you have been given are uniquely designed just for you in order that you may have all that you need to fulfill God’s will for your life and that you may bring Him glory and honor in doing so.
