In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Fall has come to Wobegon so we took a walk
A sun setting in the west

a stop along the river

Some geese , I think Canadian, flying South?

Harvesting some corn

The trail

A restful place to take a break.

Well...some of you know how dissapointed I was when my daughter decided to put my grandson in daycare and I would no longer be his daytime caregiver. Since that time my son and his wife had a baby girl . Their plan was to put her in daycare but now that it is almost time for my daughter-in-law to go back to work she has been thinking maybe ....Grandma could watch her, at least through the winter months. There is so much illness in the schools this Fall and I would think in the daycares also, so I am very excited to have the oppurtunity to take care of her, for at least a little while. God shuts one door and then opens another.

So glad the grand is coming move, especially as it's flu season and nasty epizootics are going 'round.
