Our Blustery, Wonderful Halloween 2013


Our Front Porch on A Blustery Halloween Night,
 48 little Trick Or Treaters visiting the cottage so far.

  Little drops of rain are falling on my face as I take in the beauty and joy of this night.
 
 
  My favorite part is looking into the m...other's smiling, proud, sparkling eyes; the same the mother who painstakingly dressed her little child in the colorful costume which will remain in her memory and scrapbook forever... Right down to the little painted on whiskers.

 

It is a night I shall cherish myself for many weeks. Do you think there will be something like it in Heaven

This is how we know what love is: Playing Headbands with Pop Pop

B begged us for "Family Night" with Grandma and Pop Pop.  I knew it was a slim chance since Pop is post op from major back surgery and not exactly in the lap of comfort these days, but we asked anyway.  Mike fired up the grill, I bought New York Strips, (it has to be the first time in years-- with my Beans and Rice Mentality).   It was worth every cent... to see my father play BINGO and "Headbands" with all of us-- close to miraculous.  Miracles do happen!  Only my cousins and closest friends would know what this truly means to me... to have my Dad playing board games with us on a Friday Night! 


"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us... " Ephesians 3: 20

"Better a Dry Crust of Toast in a Corner..."

of the kitchen than a sumptuous FEAST in the Banquet Hall of a Contemptuous Woman...

 
This is my scenic view when cooking on the stove.  I made myself a little "Attitude" laminated card to read and re-read for when the deceiver attempts to get his hold on my outlook.  Remember the warning of Jesus regarding the newly cleansed demon-posssessed person in the Bible; how he was healed of a demon, but replaced it with nothing, and then 7 more new ugly demons came in and took up residence in him.  I am keeping my "residence" full, just in case!  Lord Willing!  (Not that I was demon-possessed, but if you ask my husband, he might clue you in on a thing or two!)  Read Job 25:24, another little posted scripture I posted on the sink just where I can read it when cleaning the dishes.
