I *love* the description of Jesus, above, in that quote by John Smith. He is "sweet, mild, humble and loving". Knowing Him is *more* than knowing about Him. I am reading "God's Pursuit of Man" by A.W. Tozer...and it is a great read. I will admit, however, that sometimes I have to read some of the paragraphs repeatedly to really understand what he is saying. Sometimes it can be frustrating because I feel as though my mind weaves around all the words but they don't always *sink in*. I feel, though, that God will help me to take away what He will have me to. :)
I just wanted to share those quotes with you today. I read them, over and over, letting them gently rest on my heart for me to ponder. We need to truly "digest" the beautiful Truth.
I am sharing a few photos from in my home. Today was such a busy day (as lately, most days seem to be) and so I don't have a large amount of interesting things to share.
Johnny Cash...a family favorite...and yes, it is autographed! A lovely gift from my parents to Chris, one Christmas season! :) ....
Today has been full....schooling, housework, laundry, knitting (I'm working on a baby blanket that a lady requested), and corn. We met my Mother-in-Love down at the garden today and picked and husked more corn. Silver Queen, Ectase, and Incredible are the kinds we have. We each, after husking, took home big tubs/boxes full and got to work blanching and cutting the kernels off the ears, to freeze.
I got 9 freezer bags worth. It doesn't look like a lot...but it took quite a while! And add that to some I froze previously and all that I have canned, so far, and we are going to have a nice amount of corn for over the winter! I think I will give a couple of the freezer bags full to my cousin...a young, single guy who will probably love the taste of fresh sweet corn in the middle of winter! :)
I hope you each are well. I pray for you, when the Lord prompts by bringing you to my thoughts.
Thanks for the visit. I know this post was quite short and entirely lacking interesting words...but it is 9pm and for a girl that gets up around 5 in the morning...it's bedtime! My eyelids get heavy and typing ends up taking twice as long...for although I *am* a fast typer...when I feel only semi-awake, I end up making mistakes and in need of hitting the *delete* button quite often (so I don't lack integrity with total mis-spellings...even though my sister *does* try to improve my terrible usage of commas! ;)
And now I can see that I am really starting to ramble, aren't I? I better close up shop for now and bid you all *good-night* before people start questioning my ability to be a home educator!!! ;)
Gentle hugs and kind smiles being sent to you over the miles,
and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
