On the weather front:
Today was a  beautiful  autumn day....  sunny and bright....  hard to know how to dress on days like today.. I have gone  from  cold to   burning up back to  cold then  boiling hot  ....   oh well..  it  is a lovely day anyway! 

On my bedside table:

Jesus Calling,  by Sarah Young
The Battle Plan for Prayer  by   The Kendrick Brothers
(War Room)

I barely turn on tv   unless it is to watch The Property Brothers
 Barefoot Contessa 
Hallmark Movies

New Recipe I tried last week:

 no cooking lately

Looking forward to:

Each day for the last 5 days  plus the coming 5 days  this week  we   been praying for revival to come to our community , just as    Jesus told His   followers to stay and pray until  I send the Comforter... That  was  exactly 10 days....  and our   days of  prayer have been so   wonderful.. god is doing in work in each of us as we  wait.. and  long to hearwhat  he has in store for us...  for these are  certainly  trying days..  Each  new day of prayer  is so   amazing...  the prayers of His children   availeth much!

 Homemaking Tip for this week:

  Give thanks for  the home....   for  God's provision  in your family and    the peace of God will  abide   with you...!

Favorite photo from last week:
I love this fabric I bought to make matching  aprons for my favorite girls....  Something they can enjoy  all winter long!

Lesson learned the past few days:

The  spiritual formation that  comes form  writing scripture   .  I posted last week about  a  writing  scripture challenge    where  you a re given   portions daily to write and mull over as you  write...  I  absolutely love the   habit of   attending to  God's Word daily in this manner...

On my Prayer List:
repentance, thanksgiving,  supplication for:
family,  church, friends,  our city,  our nation,  the division in our nation 
Israel,  or  government

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

Psalm 85:
You, Lord, showed favor to your land;
you restored the fortunes of Jacob.
2 You forgave the iniquity of your people
and covered all their sins.
3 You set aside all your wrath
and turned from your fierce anger.

4 Restore us again, God our Savior,
and put away your displeasure toward us.
5 Will you be angry with us forever?
Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6 Will you not revive us again,
that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us your unfailing love, Lord,
and grant us your salvation.
