Happy October Amy.

We are experiencing 90 degree temps and the AC is running in the afternoon. May even take a few laps in the pool.

Where I come from it’s jacket weather this time of the year.

Greetings to all as we begin the Fall season.

Since I moved to Florida 13 years ago, I only MISS ONE THING.

October in Massachusetts.

Quaking Aspens

October 1, 2012

While I was visiting Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, two trees caught my attention. Though the leaves on the surrounding trees were not moving, the leaves of these trees were fluttering with just the slightest hint of a breeze. I pointed them out to my wife, and she told me they were called quaking aspens. I was struck by the visual effect of those shaking leaves. While all the other trees appeared calm and steady, the quaking aspen leaves shook, even with only the faintest breeze.

Sometimes I feel like a quaking aspen. People around me seem to be moving through life without issues or concerns, apparently steady and secure, while even the slightest issue can unsettle my heart. I see others and marvel at their calm and wonder why my own life can so easily be filled with turbulence. Thankfully, the Scriptures remind me that genuine, steadying calm can be found in the presence of God. Paul wrote, “Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. The Lord be with you all” (2 Thess. 3:16). Not only does God offer peace, He Himself is the Lord of peace.

When we enter the disturbing, unsettling seasons of life, it is good to know that real peace is available in the God of all peace.

Prince of Peace, teach me to find in You the
calming power of Your presence. Strengthen
me today with Your peace, and grant me the
stability I need in this turmoil-filled world. Amen.
Peace is more than the absence of conflict; peace is the presence of God.

Read: Philippians 4:6-9

Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace always in every way. —2 Thessalonians 3:16
Bible in a Year:
Obadiah-Jonah

So cute. Yes, Fall is here, pumpkins say so! Wish I had
a nice slice of pumpkin pie. My mother had such a wonderful
recipe....better than any pumpkin pie I've had! I
may look for her recipe! We've had rainy weather for a few days.
We must have needed it or HE wouldn't have given it to us.
Have a terrific Monday, everyone!!

This ODB is so meaningful, Rus! When I lived in Colorado, I also, was so amazed at the quaking aspen leaves. They would catch the sun at just the right time, and look like golden coins.

I agree, when so much turbulence hits me I pray and leave it to Him. He is in control and it is a constant reminder for me.

GOOD MILITARY MONDAY TO AMY’S PLACE!




The Soldier’s Code

1) I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.

3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in every way.

5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies, or harmful to their cause.

6) I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, August, 1955.





Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)
