Sunday Evening Ramblings, September 29, 2019

New Scandinavia Lutheran Church
Dallas, WI

'Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength. Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come before him.
Worship the Lord in holy splendor; tremble before him, all the earth. The world is firmly established; it shall never be moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The Lord is king!” Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it. Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth*. O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever.' From I Chronicles 16

*Note that the LORD coming to judge the earth is a good thing, in which all of creation rejoices - because only He is the just and merciful King, and at last all the wrongs will be righted and all the hurts healed. Our God reigns!

 Morning has broken

It was only 43 degrees F. on the porch yesterday morning, but it was a beautiful, sunny morning! I take my phone with me and listen to the USCCB Daily Scripture Readings, a great way to start my day.

View from the porch to the southeast
Yes, I am grateful every single day for this view, even in the winter.
(Perhaps a bit more grateful May through October, however)

 Lots of work on the Dallas house this week.
New back deck, new paint, new lattice.
Will someone please bring a body bag.
Oh wait. I guess he's just working on something under the bench.
False alarm.

Two someones stopped in to see us.
This cute little grandson is such a happy baby!

Can you believe that Tuesday is already October 1?!  Wisconsin often has gorgeous Octobers. I hope this is one of them. 

 Here are a couple photos from other Octobers,
taken in the neighborhood.

 Really. It was this beautiful!

And from two years ago today,
the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul at Blockley
in the Cotswolds.

Have a blessed Lord's Day, everyone.

Thanks for stopping in, Terri. I had to sneak back to your blog and see if there had been any updates.

You get some beautiful autumn color in your neck of the woods! We had snow this weekend. The last time this happened was in the 1920's!

I am jealous of the beauty of God you see there. It is pretty here - but not gorgeous! You will definitely have a beautiful October. Only in the 40's. It has been in the 90's about 100 days this summer - a record. Another week is coming. I could use a change. Your home is beautiful and so are the two that stopped by! sandie

Vee said...

A lot going on there! Sometimes it must feel as if... Oh well, onward, onward to the new. God is leading.

It will surely be a beautiful October there. I always look forward to October except for some of the decor that creeps me out when God’s pouring His beauty out so spectacularly.

I am so jealous of that 43 degrees, we have been in the 90's every single day since the first week of april and I long for cool weather. I will take anything below 75 right now.. that view from your coffee cup made me think, beauty as far as the eye can see... wow what a view. ha ha on the body bag... precious grandson....

Cheryl said...

So much beauty in this post . . . from the inspired Words of life to the glories of a Wisconsin autumn to that darling babe in arms!

(Vee's comment about the creepy decor made me nod my head in agreement! God's decor is glorious!)

Judy, really, "body bag" - you are hilarious! Oh how I love that house. Whoever buys your place is surely going to feel all the love. Prospective buyers are going to walk in and say "This house has such a good feeling to it."
