God’s Night


The devil does not have a claim on this day or any other

This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Thought I would share some pictures from my trip home from the library today…The colors are disappearing fast, and I want to capture as much as I can.  The last four photos are of our yard and the road in front of the cottage.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Romans 8:18-23

Planet earth may be getting old and full of evil and darkness, and the creation might be groaning, but the Light of the Creator still shines brightly for all to see, and it is still pretty awesome to behold on a golden autumn day!

And is it possible that while we are looking upon the beauty of God's creation, creation is looking back at us? At least we know that  other people are looking for some indication of the presence of Jesus within those of us who claim to be his followers.
Remember, we are His image bearers...so do not forget to let your light shine!

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

My prayer closet…

 

Outside… the clear blue sky and the crisp autumn air beckons to me.

CIMG3036*(underlined in my Bible)…But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to the Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathens do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking,

Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask him.

Matthew 6:6-9

CIMG3048CIMG3098Okay…time for this ‘Little Miss Muffet’  to go now!

DSC02130Inside… the warm glow of autumn welcomes me.

What a contrast from the brightness outside to the dimness of the cottage inside! Such is the life of a forest dweller. By the way, I got that little autumn candle for free at our local pharmacy just for switching one of our prescriptions over from another pharmacy!

Blessings & Love,

& remember we are…
