I just thought I would share a little of what I have been squeezing into my days.
This is me at around 4 months old or so.  My Aunt Joyce holding me and
my Grandma Iva in the background (making sure she is holding me right).

 I have been going through and scanning slides that my parents have taken over the years.
I have been working on this for a  few days now.  I am only 1/8th of my way through all of them.
 My dad has slides back to
the fifties.  Notice the next one...

This one is one of my favorites so far.  This is my Mom and Dad around 1958 or so.
I think it is taken at Lake Michigan.  What a cool photo eh?!
Love this one!!
Two little love birds.  They have been married for 56 years!  Nice job Mom and Dad!

How about this beauty!  I think this is about 1961 or so.
Hawaii.  Fun stuff!

God is amazing and wonderful!  Amen!
This year has been such a huge year for me and my spiritual growth.  Becoming closer to Jesus and my walk with him.  It is so incredible!  It has always been my desire to have a deeper understanding of The Word of God.  I feel this year that I am finally starting that profound journey.  It is so wonderful and I am grateful to so many.
Number one, to God for giving me life.  And to Jesus for dying on the cross for our sins, and being such a loving, caring , forgiving Lord.

I am thankful for my parents for all that they have done for me.  They brought me up in a Godly home.
I know they will be reading this, so thank you M & D for always putting God first and then your family.  Thank you Mom for all those thankless meals you fixed us.  And all the thousands of piles of laundry you selflessly washed, and all the unconditional love that was shown.  Thank you Dad for taking care of us and for all the long hours driving us to horse shows and attending all our school sport functions.  Thank you for all of your love and guidance.  Parenting can be a thankless job, but so rewarding.  We are serving God when we serve our families.  Thank you for being such great role models in that field.  I love you both dearly.

Jesus said:
"I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me."

Autumn is falling upon us.
Wow!  October already?!  Where did September go?  
Fabulous fall!  I love fall.  Cooler temps, beautiful trees turning colors, did I say cooler temps?  YEA!  I know, I know, the fall colors are not as spectacular as out in Eastern USA, and other parts of the
world, but we will take it.  If I saw the fall colors in the deciduous parts of the world, I would probably explode!  Such beautiful artwork of our Father up in heaven.  Amen?

This was a painting that I did a couple of years ago and have had it in my private collection.  I just love to admire the leaves this time of the year.
I am like a little kid walking around saving all the turned leaves.  I want to save and press all of them.  Boy, what would I do with all of them?  I already have a quite a collection from over the years.

Hope you all are enjoying Autumn in your neck of the woods!  And collecting some beauties!
