On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

I love the month of October.

Great weather, beautiful colors
Cherished memories from past Octobers.

It. Just. Feels. Different.

Our wedding anniversary today!
A happy day of celebration.
On that day 27 years ago,
God ended a period of grief in my life
and set me in a new family!

And God increased the family!

Saturday will be my Dear Heart's Birthday
(I'm not allowed to talk about how old)

So we'll just remember him like this. :-)

October - time for the State Fair of Texas

Fall colors - I wish

This is the Reality of Fall in our part of the country!

My sweet sister's birthday
She's the sad one holding the cake.
Mom let her little friend hold her birthday doll!
(I'm the pouty one in the plaid jumper because it's
NOT my birthday! LOL)

Komen Race for the Cure
Being a survivor, this is special to me

October was the purchase of my first home
No landscaping
Nice warm colors from 1973 in the kitchen

"Drive by shooting pic"
Every now and again I have to drive by to take a look
because I am so sentimental about this house.
A lot happened there in 30 years.
The crape myrtle on the left was about a foot high when planted.

Sara was married in October 12 years ago

It's also Barrett's birthday. He's the lucky guy who married Sara.

And finally, October is the month the kids get to dress up in their cute costumes to beg for candy!

Will be anxious to see what clever costumes they come up with this year.

October feels like a month where you can slow down a little and just enjoy long walks in the cooler weather, rest just a bit from taking care of the yard, settling back into a routine. But the truth is, this month for us is already filled up!

I will be glad.
I will be glad.
I will rejoice!!
Life is good.


  1. Happy anniversary! Beautiful photos and awesome job in the race! A great cause!! Wish I could say I've lived in a home that long. Maybe some day we will settle for good. Have a wonderful weekend!
