September Doings

I haven't been very ambitious this week. I felt I had to cancel a speaking engagement. I did this because Hubby gave me a scare with his health. Nothing has come of what he experienced Sunday, Monday, and even Tuesday.

I have some pictures to share with you of things going on around here this month.

Our luncheon group expanded this month. We had four with us who weren't there at the end of July.
That's me in the pink, the third one from the right We hope to have a reunion of all who attended our old, now closed church. The wife of one of the pastors who was there before I was, sounded like she would like to come from out of state to see everyone. Others who work have expressed an interest.

These two are daughters of some of our peers. The woman in the tank top had to leave early. The other woman recently was discharged from a rehab center for injuries when she got hit by a car.

These are two wreaths I made. The larger one is on my front door. The smaller one was too small for the door, so I gave it to a friend for her mother's room at an assisted living facility.

I saved the best for last. These are impatiens growing up through rocks in our rock garden. We had some hanging baskets out there one of which was impatiens. We think the flowers dropped seeds and God took over.

We hang the baskets on the stand at the right in this picture. When I spoke at a local nursing home recently, I told them about this. One of the women was impressed to hear what God had done.

Peace and Blessings to you all. 


  1. Thank you for your sweet response to my blog. It encouraged me to continue with blogging. I like to see your photos! And what a nice idea to lunch with others. what are you talking about? Your story and about God taking over the little flowers is a beautiful, moving lesson. Thank you! Hug from your European sister in Christ.

    1. Aritha: Thank you for your sweet words. When we have these luncheons we talk about those who now live in heaven. We talk about our families. One of those ladies has four daughters, 14 grandchildren, and 14 great-grandchildren. Several of these ladies are widowed. Some others have been through divorce. But we all love the LORD.

    2. Thank you so much! What an amazing idea.

    3. My best friend had the desire to get us together. I believe most of us will be together again next week

  2. Sandi; Yes, it is. A lot of us enjoy going there. If our group gets any bigger as more join us, we might have to find another place to meet. We hope to have a reunion type meeting for all, men and women, who attended that church. Then we will have to find another place. That reunion may have to happen next spring.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
