OH what a beautiful morning~!

This morning I woke up at 6:30 and my bedroom was aglow...I looked out the window and saw the sunrise coming up.. I quickly got out of bed came downstairs put on my jacket and shoes and my camera. I didn't want to miss the moment. Went to the corn field south of the house and got these pictures this morning. Oh my goodness ~ it was so gorgeous. God is good~all the time....
I'm so glad I saw the morning sky because the sun is up, shining brightly and the glow is gone. ...

Daily Devotion this morning talks about Blessed in Giving~! Giving is the true measure of our love for God, and He always blesses us when we do it. SO, "Don't give reluctantly or in response to pressre " do it with a willing heart.. 2Co. 9:7 Take a meal to a family , go get your friends children because she needs a break, when you see someone working in their yard ~ stop and help them out. No matter what the situation, when God calls us to give....we come out blessed. His ways and thoughts are higher than ours.

Yesterday I got the lawn chairs back to the shed , my grill broke so I took it out there. I'm ready for the snow ~ my wonderful snow shovel is leaning in the garage ready for the first snow fall. It's amazing November is here and Thanksgiving is only 15 days away... Where did January 2010 go. WHen I was a child the days went ever so slow.. Now that I'm 1/2 to 132 the days go so fast.. So I'm enjoying everyday God gives me and I try to live each day at it's peak.. Even when I'm taking my daily 20 minutes power nap.

Birds are so busy at the feeders this morning. I can hardly keep up with the finch feeders. I fill them up every morning. I love birds..

Have a blessed morning/day.. God has something planned for us, keep your eyes opened ~ you never know what is around the bend of the road. It's like a present ~ Surprise~!

Gorgeous pictures!! I love that there is a giant cross in the middle. God paints us beautiful pictures every morning and every evening. His way of waking us up and tucking us in!

Wow! Incredible pictures. I was definitely still snoozing at 6:30am. I will have to try and wake up with the sun if it's going to put on a show like that. My finches here are also eating me out of house and home. Enjoy the day!

Wow - what a gorgeous sunrise.

But even more importantly thank you for putting things into perspective, especially the part about not giving reluctantly or in response to pressure but with a willing heart.

Lovely words and a lovely sky.
