Evenin’ Amy.

September already? (well, in 1-1/2 hrs here on the left coast). We’re gonna hit 92 degrees tomorrow - where I’m from Sept always meant cooler weather. In the meantime, the perspiration is rolling off like sweat.

Our grandson came down with flu-like symptoms and as you can imagine we’re pretty concerned. Dr conducted some tests to rule out Swine Flu and we’ll know in a couple of days. Meanwhile, he’ll miss a few days of school.

Have a great time in DC. Wish I could join y’all.

Good evening. Dave.

I’m deleting the Opening post. I really messed up the formatting.

Praying that it isn’t Swine Flu. I’m just not sure what to expect from the flu this year. While some say the media is hyping it too much, I still worry. Give the grandson a big hug and a GET WELL from Amy’s.

I’m trying to keep Marissa and myself pumped full of vitamin C until after we get home from DC.

September 1, 2009
Running A Marathon
I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. —Philippians 3:14

The Comrades Marathon, which began in 1921, is the oldest ultra-marathon. Covering 90 km (56 miles), it is held annually in South Africa. Bruce Fordyce completely dominated this marathon in the 1980s, winning it nine times between 1981 and 1990. His 1986 record of 5 hours 24 minutes and 7 seconds stood for 21 years before it was finally broken in 2007. It’s amazing to me that he has continued to run in this race every year.

In a sense, we as Christians are all in a marathon. It takes endurance to run and finish the race of life. When the apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Philippians, he spoke of how he was “reaching forward to those things which are ahead” (3:13) and pressing on “toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (v.14).

Our Lord Jesus has set an example of how to run life’s marathon. The Bible tells us that Jesus “for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Heb. 12:2). Despite “hostility from sinners,” He completed His race (v.3).

The secret to finishing well is to look forward to the joy that awaits us after life’s race—eternal life with Him.

I ran to meet Him when I heard His call—
The Savior’s arms were open to receive;
And I’m still running since I gave my all,
Inviting others also to believe. —Hess

The Christian’s race is not a competitive event but an endurance run.

Bible in One Year: Psalms 135-136; 1 Corinthians 12

Prayers for your grandson.

Good morning, Yorkie.
Sorry that I didn't have time to work on a Yorkie Graphic. :(

Is Northridge just getting the awful smoke or is there also fire in that area?

Watching the news of those fires is heartbreaking.
Praying for all in the fire areas.

Hope you are having a lovely day.

Yes Yorkie, the smoke has actually been seen clear into San Diego.
Northridge is in the Valley but still would get plenty of smoke.

Today when I took daughter to school our cars were covered in ash. the drive up to Glendale towards the fire area brought “ showers” of ash.

Horse Shaking the apple tree

September
 
  1 The golden-rod is yellow;
2 The corn is turning brown;
3 The trees in apple orchards
4 With fruit are bending down.

5 The gentian's bluest fringes
6 Are curling in the sun;
7 In dusty pods the milkweed
8 Its hidden silk has spun.

9 The sedges flaunt their harvest,
10 In every meadow nook;
11 And asters by the brook-side
12 Make asters in the brook,

13 From dewy lanes at morning
14 The grapes' sweet odors rise;
15 At noon the roads all flutter
16 With yellow butterflies.

17 By all these lovely tokens
18 September days are here,
19 With summer's best of weather,
20 And autumn's best of cheer.

21 But none of all this beauty
22 Which floods the earth and air
23 Is unto me the secret
24 Which makes September fair.

25 'T is a thing which I remember;
26 To name it thrills me yet:
27 One day of one September
28 I never can forget.

Helen Hunt Jackson

Good afternnon everyone, love the relaxing opener. We're still busy cleaning out my in-laws house, will be finished up with that project this week.

Our computer has a virus that has slowed everything down, convinced my DH to wait until after next week to have it looked at. I have some posts made up to post while Amy is gone and don't want to take a chance of being computerless.

Amy, your birds are so, so beautiful - I love this mauve one! (These are not still reruns, are they? Cause I don't remember seeing them, and even if we have seen them before, they are still gorgeous!)

I'm listening to Willie again - just love that song. (I just love his voice - period!) Thanks for giving us fresh new threads every month!

Thank you for the compliments on the opening and the graphic with the man and his best friend fishing. :)

I love listening to Willie. Glad you didn’t post a YouTube. LOL

I made 4 new bird graphics and one get well graphic last night and this morning. The others are reruns.

I enjoy making them; I may take an afternoon off and just make graphics. It looks like I’m getting in a rut again.

Oh, no - I hope the virus doesn't spread and take over programs you need before you can get your pc cleaned up. We need you next week for sure; hopefully you won't have any bigger problems by waiting to get it checked out. :(

I loved the Get well graphic you posted to jaycee! So pretty!

I saved a pretty, colorful bird in flight the other day. I have no idea what kind it is. (you can keep it and do one of your special frames around it) Do you? Meg?



I have no idea what kind of bug is in it's mouth either!

Maybe when we move next week we should just put up the Christmas decorations. :)

Now there's an idea! You wouldn't have to go drag out all the boxes of decorating stuff the end of November or first part of December; this way you wouldn't have to put the stuff away now, get it out again in three months, and put it away once more!

I think it is a bee-eater. I grabbed it. It is so pretty.

Am I right, Meg? There are so many birds that I’ve never heard of .... how did I live all these years without at least hearing about them? Some of these birds are so brightly colored .... they are beuautiful.

Thanks, Billie.

You're welcome. :) I don't know where all these brightly colored birds LIVE! I get excited just seeing a hummingbird here! But we have lots of quail, and it's the sweetest thing to watch a mother and half a dozen or more little ones scurrying along behind her single-file. And doves by the dozens - so pretty!

Hey, it's nice seeing you get to spend some time here today - calmer today than yesterday I take it. :)

Today is much calmer than yesterday. It is great to be able to spend a little time here today.

The convention cut into my Amy’s Place time yesterday. I’ve had some time just for me today. Hooray!!!

We have quail and dove and an occasional pheasant. We also have sparrows by the thousands and several of the little house finches. The seldom seen blue jay is about as brightly colored bird as we ever see.
