Spring beauty draws us into worship of the God of Creation.
He’s a Good Good Father.
Enjoy this beautiful weekend God has given you.
Love those who love you.
Love those who don’t with the love of the Father.
“Have regular hours for work and play;
make each day both useful and pleasant,
and prove that you understand the worth of time
by employing it well.
Then youth will be delightful,
old age will bring few regrets,
and life become a beautiful success,
in spite of poverty.”
Louisa May Alcott
Oh, will I ever learn? Will this finally be the year when I establish any kind of regular hours? I can make plans, but will I keep to them? Will they go by the wayside like so many resolutions of years past? Paul had troubles doing the good he wanted to do, too. Romans 17:15 states,
For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.*
Don’t you just love this time of year?
I love taking time to wish Happy Christmas to strangers in the parking lot, in Wal-Mart, at the gas station, just everywhere. This world will only get friendlier if you and I talk to strangers and spread sunshine all over the place. It’s just a way to show the love of Christ to others.
Here’s a bit of what I’ve been writing at Harvest Lane Cottage.
Do take time to read about Christmas Expectations!
Please drop by and say hello!
Have a wonderful Christmas season!

I bought a bag of some of this yummy ummy fall sweetness this afternoon. I wonder if it will make it until November. If I open it, I know my family won’t be able to leave it alone. I cannot even remember my first candy corn. I know I must have been small. I do remember trick or treating and getting tiny little plastic bags with four or five pieces in them. One was never enough. Are you sweet on candy corn?
