The sky is bright blue with just a few wispy clouds, while the air is still a bit nippy from last night's dip into the forties. In honor of the first day of school/unofficial start to fall, how about some hot apple cider?
Hurray for long weekends - especially with an extra vacation day at the end of them. After a quick, whole-house dust and vacuum, I intend to spend the rest of the weekend alternating between machine quilting and working on some Bible study prep - if the book comes (see previous post). A trip to the farmers' market is on the agenda, and maybe coffee with a friend.
Over the last few days I've been listening to a set of CDs by a local pastor's wife, on things we can learn about decision-making and discernment from the life of King Solomon. As she talked about Solomon becoming king as a young teenager, and feeling overwhelmed by the task in front of him, she said something that anyone who has ever felt buried under circumstances or incapable of making a right choice needs to hear.
God says, "You can't, but I never said you could; I will, and always said I would."
What comfort to be reminded that God never intended for us to try to go it alone.
