God is able

to bring us home

safely carried 

under His wing

to bow before 

His glorious throne

where all His children

will dance and sing.

from falling 

and to present you

before his glorious presence

without fault

and with great joy –

This will be a short and simple post

since I’ve been busy racing to finish line of NaNoWriMo.

❀ ~ I did it! ~ ❀

(Huge sigh of relief)

Now I can spend oodles of time raking up leaves

and dreaming about how I’m going to turn my first draft

into a finished book.

  3. I am just loving these leaves, Wendy!! I have to say I do have a favorite… (5th pic) a single autumn brown leaf on top of green. (How true of fate ~to take chance and be pleasantly surprised.)

    Congratulations on finishing the NaNoWriMo and enjoy raking up those wonderful, beautiful, inspiring leaves, my friend! Blessings ~Zoey

  4. Congratulations – goals met are so satisfying. Our leaves are all down around here, and we rake some for the compost and mulch the rest for the lawn. But we have snow on the ground again. More like winters years ago.
    Peace

    1. Yes, we did it, Wendy! And Kath, not to hijack this post or anything, but I must thank you for the advice you gave me and the inspiration you gave us both. I’m so proud I took it on and we didn’t give up. Will blog about it in the coming days or next week. Thanks to both of you again. ❤

      1. Yay us! xo It sure helped to have someone to share the joys and trials of NaNoWriMo with. I look forward to your post, Jennifer. Blessings on your weekend. Hugs. ❀ (I sprinted across the finish line once I figured out who was the culprit in my novel.)

    2. Thank you, Kath. I learned some valuable things about meeting a writing deadline. It definitely boosted my confidence in that regard. And I love it when my muse takes over and surprises me with plot twists I didn’t see coming.❀

    1. Thank you, dear poet friend. I kept remembering that it’s just a first draft and to allow my muse to have its way with the words. “You can’t edit a blank page” was a mantra I borrowed from somewhere to keep me going when I thought my writing stunk. All first drafts stink. ❀

    1. Thank you, dear Theresa. I love the feeling of having pushed past obstacles to the finish line. I can’t even imagine what it will be like to finish the race of life and meet our Maker face to face. I’m so grateful for His love and grace. ❀ Blessings on your holiday.

  6. Wendy:
    I anticipate with great excitement being able to bow before His glorious throne. Thank you for this excellent post. I am extremely curious about photo six. Was this inverted? The plant (obviously a Northwest species) reminds me of how a miniature lichen (Cladonia chlorophaea? – Pixie Cups) grows here in Michigan.
    I wish you the best as you develop, revise, and grow your first draft. ~ Richard

    1. Thank you, Richard. ❀ My husband also asked me if it was inverted. The Euphorbia had bent over on itself after a heavy rainfall. They caught my eye, as they looked like aliens. I don’t know its full botanical name. But one of its common names is Irish Bells. It’s invasive. So it’s in a bed of its own.

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
