I was up at 5:30AM doing my normal morning chores (making my hubby’s lunch, cleaning hedgehog cages, feeding my feline babies and morning dishes etc. ) 5:30am is an hour earlier than I usually do. The reason? (You may ask?) I head out the door an hour earlier to meet with another woman from my church, at church, to pray together. I look forward to Wednesday mornings. I walk away from our 20 minute “power time” refreshed, enabled and empowered! We share scriptures and how they are speaking to us then we bring up concerns and requests about others (who is sick, hurting, jobless etc.) and we pray. We leave filled with JOY (even if there is still hurt and pain and struggles!).
These lovely birds are outside my office window – have been here in large flocks all day. These must be the robins from upper Canada and the Adirondack Mts. finally making their migration to the sunny south before the snow starts to fly. Last week it was flocks of blue birds. These robins will come and fill my heart with joy in March 2013 – until then the mornings will be quiet without their singing. Safe journey little feather friends!
Most of our leaves have been ripped off the trees and are decorating the ground with the sights, smells and sounds of russling fall leaves.
