Harper Days

Here she is pretty happy.  I will not say that is the way she stayed all day.  Her auntie Audrey says every time she baby sits, she adds another year to her becoming a mother.  I think now she will be 32 before it happens.

                          You gotta love those sweet soft faces. 
We were talking in Sunday school about heaven here on earth and what makes you think of things God gives us to show us how great heaven will be and I do think that grandchildren show us his great love for all mankind.

Fall Scenes

      Daniel 2:21, He changes times and seasons,he removes kings and sets up kings
      He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.
 The leaves were not that pretty this year in the mountains but I tried to find a few areas where you could see some of the bright colors.

My first picture of a real bear running in the fields.  At first I thought it was a baby cow because he was in a pasture near the other cows, but when he turned to run I knew that was no cow.  He stopped near the woods and I got this shot, he is about 150 lbs not a very big bear. This was about 6 in the evening.  I always know they are there but never get to see them in person.

Wednesday night we had small group and something came across that struck me and  I wondered your thoughts.  Priscilla Shrier was talking about how we are like a glass filled with water and when God shakes us the water can spill out.  I get that whats inside comes out theory.  My thought went to what she said next, that maybe the reason we are being shook is because we have not learned and some of the excess water needs out.  I get this theory also...  I asked the girls in class if they have noticed that alot of times the areas where we have struggles, no matter if it was today, yesterday or last month or even last year all seem to be the same.  I wonder if maybe I am allowed to go through somethings that seem the same but with different people is because I understand and can handle this situation better than someone else or have I not learned from passed mistakes and God keeps shaking my cup till I figure it out and he can empty the dirty water from me.  Something arose this last week that I thought was buried almost 4  years ago, I have been asking God why it is being brought up now, I have finally let it go, it is what it is, there is really not much I can do to fix the damage done because it started with someone else. What is the shaking for, did I not handle something right the first time, is he really convicting the other person, my mind goes to there is something else behind this, or is it that I know how to handle this situation and God is showing me step by step what to do.  Think about the valleys and pits you get in, are they of your doing or someone else's doing.  Does the same kind of problems keep happening? Maybe we need to ask ourselves what is the reason for this shake-up?

As of tomorrow

As of tomorrow I hope to be a better person, isn't that what we all strive for.  But in and of myself it will never happen.  Praise God for the Holy Spirit...With him in my heart I can have self-control when I want it.  I can have hope for a new day.  I can live a joyful life no matter the circumstances.  The key to all of this is allowing the Spirit to work and me keep out of it. Tomorrow is always a new day to grow and to learn from the day before that maybe wasn't handle the way it should have been.
