The LORD said,

"Go out and stand on the mountain
in the presence of the LORD,
for the LORD is about to pass by."

Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire.

And after the fire came a gentle whisper.

How sweet are your words to my taste,
sweeter than honey to my mouth!

Psalm 119:103 niv

We cut these off the lattice today as they were wilted and dead.
The crisp mornings have taken their toll on the loveliness we enjoyed this summer.


My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.

Psalm 27:8 niv

October 20, 2009

King of KINGS and Lord of LORDS! And, He shall reign...oh hello guys. :D I just got back from rehearsal and glugging down raw cloves of garlic shredded in hot water. I don't suggest visiting me in the near future. By Thursday I might be respectable again... : /

We sang....the trademark song of the Messiah tonight. Yus. Let us say this in unison. 1 2 3...


This video below is that very song, with a cute twist.
(Btw, fast forward to 1:37 for the music, i.e. the best part.)

Isn't that hilarious? :D I thought so, too!

Here's a different song with sheet music which comes in handy when I'm cooking and don't have the printed book (doesn't stay open well!) in front of me.

The sun was shining bring and lovely today, unlike the day I took this photo...

"Who among the gods is like you, O LORD ?
Who is like you— majestic in holiness,
awesome in glory, working wonders?


Exodus 15:11 niv

Fall, fall, fall! It's such a beautiful time of year!

From the golden yellows....

..... to the rich reds .....

.....to the variegated.....

Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:13 niv

But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy,
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.

Psalm 5:11 ESV

October 14, 2009

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified;
do not be discouraged
for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

Joshua 1:9 NIV

Sitting in the living room with the stove cranked it's easy to feel sleepy. The day is so gray and rainy out there it feels like a good day to hibernate. ; ) It's my turn to cook so I won't be here for very long. :)

Had a lovely weekend climbing Mt. Monadnock. It was brutally cold at the top. Next time I am so bringing gloves and hat. :)

Me on the top. :) The hair was just whipping...even when I had my hood on it was all in my face.

Showing we MADE IT. :D

The best shot of the day I thought...

The color was pretty cool.


So Messiah rehearsal again tonight! I've been studying. Hopefully I won't make any huge mistakes and lead anyone astray. :D I do believe the whole house will know the soprano part before long. ; ) This is the second choir of my adult life I've been in (other than family music of course) and the unfamiliar songs I tend to leave until I go to the first rehearsal, since of course everyone else will know them and I'll follow them. WRONG. I need to get out of the follow mentality in these situations. :D


Vincent got a dear, er, I mean DEER today!! (: P Excited and happy for him! I went out with him this morning and got wet cold feet and a few pictures. I'll let him post them in his time. :)


Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. For,
"All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever."
1 Peter 1:22-25 NIV

It is always dangerous to blog when I'm tired. I suppose it could become more humorous that way. I shall hopefully not stick my size 8 foot in my size 12 mouth. At least I have room if need be.

If you stalk our schedule page (perfectly acceptable in most cases), or visited my facebook page late this week might have guessed we're home! I wasn't too thrilled we were ONLY gone for 4 1/2 weeks. But, it was kinda my fault. October is a fabulous month to be home and I put my vote to be home this month. : ) Looking forward to getting some of that brilliant fall color captured and breathing the deliciously cool fall air. Mmm!! I suppose I'll have to learn how to be a 'real' photographer and get up when it's still dark and camp out by the swamp and hike tall mountains. (This is wisdom from Vincent, btw.) *yawn* Oh dear. I'm getting more tired just thinking about it.

Changing subjects: I have to smile when I think back to the things I've posted in the past. How we change and shrug off faddish ideas or unthought out opinion which we thought we should air publicly. Or maybe I thought it out but since had a gray matter switch out. For instance, take my post about pink shirts on guys. I think I shocked myself when I came home with a pink dress shirt for Nathan yesterday. Hehe.

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

James 1:12 NIV

Goodnight. :)
