White Pumpkins

This morning was a wonderful 57 degrees
in Nashville, TN.

It feels like Fall.

So, guess what I did?

I pulled out the white pumpkins pumpkins.

It felt good to get out the ironstone and white-tones again.

It feels like I'm finally home. 

I bought this one from Timewashed last year
at the end of the season.
This is the first time I've displayed it. 

I brought this one home when I closed my booth.
I decoupaged a plastic pumpkin with song sheet
and wrapped the burlap ribbon around it. 

Before the move, I sold some of my ironstone. 
What was I thinking!

Just another reason to go pickin'.

That's how we say it in the South.

Update on Hutch!

The surgery was to remove the cancer.
When they got in there, the bladder was attached to the colon.
The cancer is contained within the colon.
The doctors decided to wait on surgery.
He will have 6-8 weeks of radiation and then chemo.
The doctors feel like the prognosis is good
with the above choice of treatment. 

Anyone who's been through this knows
that the journey will not be easy.
The family's faith sustains them and they are ready to fight.

Please let the prayers continue.

Happy Fall, Ya'll,

Believing God for Hutch

I believe in the power of prayer. 
I believe that Jesus is the same today as He was yesterday
and as He will be tomorrow.
I don't understand the whys and I don't understand
the whens, when it doesn't happen like we prayer.

But I still believe.

My favorite Beth Moore book of all time,
"Believing God"
made a huge impact on my life. 

It taught me to go "boldy to the throne of God."
"God sees, He hears, He understands and He will come," 
was spoken to me at my point of unbelief.

Today I am believing God for a young man, 
Justin Hutching, 
better known as "Hutch."

Hutch is the guy on the right.

A week ago, he and his sweet family were told that he 
had colon cancer. 
They were shocked, afraid, but holding on to faith.

Hutch is a best friend to some of our youth.

These kids are praying and believing for a miracle.

His step mom and I are close friends and prayer partners.
We are all believing for a miracle. 

I was looking through my photos and I found this, 
Hutch is the blond with the blue shirt.

Oh, how I miss this group.

Praying for a family, a mom, a dad, a step mom and step dad, 
brothers, and so many, many friends  and most of all
a young man who needs 
to see God do a miracle.

You will laugh again, Hutch.

Some words that I speak from Beth Moore,

God is WHO HE says HE is.
God CAN Do what HE says HE can do.
I am who God says I am.
I can do all things through CHRIST WHO gives me strength.
God's Word is active and alive in me.

Hope you, my blogging friends and anyone 
who sees this post will believe with me.

With a prayerful, humble and believing heart,

Wonders of His Love

Call me sentimental today. 

I just read a post by Theresa, 

Something as simple as celebrating
a brother and remembering a dad, 
can bring me to tears. 

Somtimes it good to remember...
and smile...or cry...

I remember a Christmas before my little ones came along with
memories of my brother and sister's children
and cousins getting together and enjoying each other. 

Fall always brings nostalgia
and with it such wonders of God's love.

a pumpkin patch with a little boy

a corn maze with family

carving pumpkins with friends

football games 

a campfire and roasting marshmellows

wrapping up with mama's old quilts
on chilly mornings and nights

reading from Mama's old Bible

a cup of coffee and quiet time

a marked Bible with all the times God spoke
to me through His precious Word

All of the above, are wonders of His Love.

Today, I'm reminded of His blessings 
and I am grateful.

Smiles and Tears,
