My kitchen’s prepped and waiting for the traditional baking to begin.
The milk and eggs, set out early this morning, are warming up to room temperature, while the oven awaits my return to turn on to get the day going.
But today, in this season of Thanksgiving, I’m moving slow.
Not quick to turn the page, letting my heart soak in the faithfulness of our Father who has brought us through another year.
“Lord, I’m having a hard time letting this autumn season go.
Winter approaches, clearly, as glistening crystal snow.
Help me turn the page,
Begin a new chapter in the book.
For Autumn’s beauty captivates my heart’s pondering looking.”
“Surely, I have calmed and quieted my soul,
Like a weaned child is my soul within me.”
Psalm 131:2 NKJV

My heart is discovering as I press into writing and sharing again, more the opening up and sharing, I am more at peace. Focusing on Jesus’ Beauty, Faithfulness and the Love of God has empowered me to step into daily life with a joyful heart of expectation for the future 💜🕊️🙏

Harvest is calling in reservations,
“Autumn will be here soon.”
“So Ruth went to the field to gather the grain the reapers left behind….
At that moment, Boaz came from Bethlehem to survey his harvest. He greeted the harvesters, “May Yahweh bless you.” They replied, May Yahweh bless you…”
“Noticing Ruth …Boaz walked over to Ruth and said, “Listen my daughter, don’t leave this field to glean somewhere else. Stay here in my field…
Watch my harvesters to see into which field they go to cut grain, and follow them.”
The story of
“Ruth, Chapter 2: 3-9” from The Passion Translation. Ruth “a Moabite girl who came back…” With Naomi from the land of Moab to her homeland of Bethlehem, (the house of Bread).
May you and your family be blessed today as we return to the house of bread in
Bethlehem during the Harvest season.
“May you have a full and rich reward from Yahweh, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to find shelter!” Ruth 2:12 TPT
“Sun not up over the horizon yet.
The sea is quiet as I cast my net.
Reaching out into the depths of the day;
Please, keep the winds of adversity at bay.
“Peace, Peace!” to the beating storms,
For the prayers of the watchmen guard the shores long.
Under the covenant and mercy of You,
Casting my net to sail dreams of new.”
“Jesus shouted to them, “Throw your net over the starboard side, you’ll catch some!” And they did as He said, and they caught so many fish they couldn’t even pull in the net.” John 21:6 TPT
Delightfully sharing memories of one of the greatest joys of my heart, pilgrimage to Israel.

“September dawns and we start again;
Goodbye summer’s dry, hot winds.
Welcome rain washing colors true;
Refreshing gifts from our Savior
Who makes all things new.”
“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.” Isaiah 65:17NKJV
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmation show His handiworks. Day to day utters speech, and night reveals knowledge.” Psalm 19:1-2 NKJV

Good morning LORD,
El Ohiym, Adonai.
You never change, or ever lie.
Bring forth Your justice as the rising sun.
Our world is shaking, rocking, for each and every one.
Cause the evil hearts of men to turn to love instead;
For peace is found in freedom and not in fear and dread.
Lifting up those hurting, sick and displaced.
In Your care Lord, we place them for You alone are
The Creator of the whole human race.
Come Lord Jesus! We wait on You.
Strengthen us as You tarry,
For we place our trust in You.
“For my soul trust in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.”
Psalm 57:1 NKJV

For in Him there’s no striving,
Only quietness to the listening heart.”

And delight you with His songs.”

“Morning dew perfect,
Crisp air from Your breath.
Resting in You Lord,
You are my nest.
Gift from above.
Covering the earth, Lord,
Silver wings of a Dove.”
“I see You sparkling like silver and glistening like gold,
Covered by the beautiful wings of a dove.”

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me today.
It’s the simple things…candle lights welcoming.

“Prophecy to come; on bended knee.
Future bright; my spirit sees.
Fulfillment of Your Word is True;
Multitudes upon multitudes put their faith in You.
For out of the ashes Your Bride does Arise;
Holy Ghost fire on her resides!
Quicken the spirit;
Sharpen the sword,
For Jesus Christ is coming!
Our Saving Lord!
“And after these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God!” Revelation 19:1 NKJV
Now I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse.
And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True,
And in righteousness He judges and makes war…
And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine line,
White and clean, followed Him on white horses.”
Revelation 19:11 & 14 NKJV
