~Happy November Everyone~

chipmunk-acorn

Gathering For Winter

I found so many acorns
Under the falling leaves
I’ll gather some quickly
And take them home with me

I have no mate or offspring
No friends or family near
So, I don’t need too many
I’ll just leave some of them here

Autumn will soon be in the past
That is clear to see
But I’ll have plenty of acorns
And I won’t go hungry

I’ll stay warm and fed
And just enjoy my Winter life
But, I’ll be back again next year
Perhaps, with a wife!

Teenie.....November 1, 2011

Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list

Staying Clean
November 1, 2011

During a business trip to Philadelphia, I walked down Broad Street toward City Hall each morning to catch the subway. Each day I passed a long line of people waiting for something. They were a cross-section of humanity in age, ethnic origin, and appearance. After wondering about it for 3 days, I asked a man on the sidewalk why all those people were standing in line. He told me that they were on probation or parole after breaking the law and had to take a daily drug test to show that they were staying clean.

This struck me as a vivid illustration of my need to stay spiritually clean before God. When the psalmist pondered how he could live a pure life, he concluded that the key was to consider and obey God’s teaching. “Your Word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. Blessed are You, O Lord! Teach me Your statutes. . . . I will delight myself in Your statutes; I will not forget Your Word” (Ps. 119:11-12,16).

In the light of God’s Word, we see our sin, but we also see God’s love in Christ. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

By His grace . . . staying clean.

Lord, grant that we may hear You speak
As truth within Your Word we seek;
And may it show us all our sin
And make us clean without, within. —D. De Haan

Read the Bible to be wise, believe it to be safe,
practice it to be holy.

Read: Psalm 119:9-16

Your Word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. —Psalm 119:11
Bible in a year:
Jeremiah 24-26; Titus 2

Good Morning Mayor, and ALL!!
Back after a brief break from posting and reading........

Lots going on here at our home..( major kitchen remodel, keeping up with grandson’s nightly homework, and dealing with sister’s home going...) but Fall is my most favorite seasons of the year and this morning I am full of praise and thanksgiving “ just because”!

This morning’s ODB a great reminder to stay in God’s Word!

Love to all here on this first day of November.

Beautiful opening for November, gals and guy!


I miss summer....
But, then...
If you promise to hold me close to your heart...
And keep me warm...
We will venture outdoors...
And, I'll welcome the new season with you

Thanks, t-pammy!

As you can see...lots of people around here have the 'gift'...I don't! lol

Several weeks ago, I was cleaning out 'stuff' and found a book of poems written by my granddaughters 2nd grade class in 1995. I thought, if they can do it, why can't I? Lesson learned...they were much better at it! :)

Thank you for this lovely poem, though a bit wistful.
Is Bob still posting on Free Republic?

Poetry read aloud effects the heart, I find, wish it were mine.

I’m sure NnB is still posting but he hasn’t been here for about a month.

Hey, Bob ..... where are you? Do I need to mess up another of your poems to hear from you? I can do that. *big smile *

I enjoy sharing the works of Freeper Friends.

Wishing you an Awesome November. Geo.

Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner as they say.

I’m not ready for either. I’m still not spending enough time on updating my genealogy for all of my nieces and nephews.

You all did a great job on Diver Dave’s prayer thread. And I thank both of you so much.

I will be on Amy’s as soon as I can. My motor is barely purring today. I had a bite of breakfast at noon! Its 1:00 here and I haven’t hit a lick at a snake so far.

See you sometime! (((HUGS)))

Welcome to Amy’s Place, MomToThree. We hope that you will be back soon and often. We try to provide a room for relaxing and friedship.

NnB has a real talent with words. It is such a good feeling knowing that I have an archive of his work with graphics by either Billie or MamaBear.

Have a Fabulous Fall.

Good to see you. It does seem that the days are really getting shorter. I never have enough time for what I have planned for the day.

Hope you can stop by more often.
