if you countdown, I don't

59 days to go!

From the UK: Wildflower Illustrations

cold upon us..

This is a glorious time of the year.  Busyness with our business is  like this squirrel gathering winter food. Sometimes it is  pressing on to  what is next and remembering others like birthdays and simmering tea to keep us going. Sigh.
Lessons to plan and books to read so lessons can happen.  

Feeling sighs but so glad at this time of the year the world is and will be turning 
majestic colors.

- Heading up to the mts. on friday to attend this retreat:

Grace to Build 

- Rooming with Liz from Living Books Library

. Heat is not working well in the house. Having it worked on today. New heat pump in the summer but not doing well with heat. It runs and runs. The workman is here today, 

- and prayer... do not forget the strength of the Lord and needing his help and transforming your mind and heart. 

- Hoping also to turn around and go to this with some students just for the day on Tuesday. 

Montreat College 

- really good post for teachers here from Nancy

days got colder and still more to come

This isn't my sweater but the sweater days are here. My mind goes back to my childhood and sweaters. I loved wearing sweaters. ( New York)

More soon to catch up on books read, lessons taught, cookbooks, and then there is a season of prayer. 

BLESSED Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning; Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them, that by patience and comfort of thy holy Word, we may embrace, and ever hold fast, the blessed hope of everlasting life, which thou hast given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

working ...

Fall Break is over for me.... and my daughter. She is back at school and so am I. 
Here are a few things I ran into tonight while working on my next couple of days 
of teaching and some do not have anything to do with what I am doing but you know how that is when you see something so beautiful: It possesses you:

sabbath poem

Lord, make my heart a place where angels sing!
For surely thoughts low-breathed by Thee
Are angels gliding near on noiseless wings;
And where a home they see
Swept clean, and garnished with adoring joy,
They enter in and dwell,
And teach that heart to swell
With heavenly melody, their own untired employ.
John Keble (1792–1866)

( they have alot of sweeping to do in mine! )
