It is a gray morning, and the promise of rain is in the air. I have some beautiful roses on our little rose tree at the end of the driveway that have been bravely resisting the frost. I want to get a picture of them today. The rain will probably be the end of them. It has been such a lovely autumn.
Yesterday I had to go to the dentist again…the temporary filling that they put into the root canal on Wednesday fell out on Saturday evening. So yesterday they put in a post and did the permanent filling. It was nice I didn’t need a crown, and there was not much pain. That was reason to rejoice, indeed. Youngest Daughter was home all day, and I loved that. I wasn’t glad that she was sick, but I like having her home.
And these are days to count blessings. Think of all we’ve been given. Think of all we’ve been spared. Think of all that we’ve been promised.
“. . . Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow. Blessings, all mine, with ten thousand beside. Great is Thy Faithfulness . . .”
