Frost on the Grass…

Wednesday morning when I arose from bed there was frost on the grass, on the cars, the trees, and the temp was 30 degrees outside.  It was not a heavy frost, but frost none the less.  We have had frost every morning since then.  And there is this morning as well.

I mowed the backyard yesterday afternoon.  It was needing it, the grass was still very green, however the tomato plants were wilted, so I pulled them, and dug the soil of our small raised garden we had on the East side of our house.  It never had much in it except tomatoes and onions.  Neither one did very well; though the tomato plants nearly diminished during the heat of the Summer, and grasshoppers demolished the green of the plants, they did come back when we got some rain.  The tomato plants were doing real well, just small tomatoes, and they should have been larger.

Just to let anyone interested to know; I am still writing in my journal; and almost every day.  I think I have missed one day since I first began on August 30.

I rejoice in knowing that the Creator of all that is is also my Lord and Savior.  Praise Him.

Ramblings for the Day

I am still keeping my journal. I have written it it every day since starting it again.  Today I wrote of my awaking and getting up time; the Scripture I read for the day, the schedule for the day’s reading – which is different from my reading, because I am ahead of the schedule.

I also wrote of the activity trip I had with the cross country running team.  I took them to Carthage.

I did not write about the thoughts I am having of spending two extra days a week down on the church field.  Doing some pastoral visits, evangelism as God leads and provides.

I am thankful to my Lord today for all His many blessings.  Thank You Lord for the air I breathe, the ground upon which I walk and where I live.  Thank You for every beat of my heart, for eyes to see, ears to hear, for the stars of the heavens; they are surely the “floor joists” of your abode called Heaven.  You are awesome and glorious and powerful in all Your ways.

That is it from along the banks of Flat Creek.

My Journal

For anyone who may be even the slight bit interested I am still keeping my journal.  I have written in it every day with about two hand written pages.  A few years ago I thought I would keep my journal on the computer and store it on floppy disc.  That is when I started losing heart to journal.

This time back to it I am doing my hand writing on paper, and it just seems to be a bit more personal.  It could be that doing my Bible study on the computer has caused me to lose touch with the Lord in some way.  That is something I may be changing soon.

Going back to a book in my hands, paper to write on the desk, and a mind focused on the words of the Lord; that just seems that it might be more of what the Lord intended.  For me it seems the computer takes away much of the personal touch with my Savior.

I will still use the computer for a quick reference on the concordance and such, and other research, but the rest I will do the old fashioned way.  Trust the Holy Spirit, use Scripture, and pray.

Just another hillbilly writing from the banks of Flat Creek.
