Wednesday’s Ideas & Weekly Applications This Fall

I know we still have a few more weeks of official summer, but after Labor Day, it starts to feel more like Fall, even in 95 degree weather. I guess there is just something about putting up the white after Labor Day that says Fall!!

Fall Thoughts & Ideas

I have already heard a lot of talk about pumpkin spice – it is everywhere! All of the stores are filled with Fall decorations, except for the Christmas sections. So I am curious how many of you have already decorated for Fall. I have never been one to go crazy decorating for each season, but some of the blogs I follow have given me the bug. I can’t wait to get mums and pumpkins for the the outdoor areas, and now I am planning for the inside as well.

Some friends of ours had a garage sale this past week, and I got some beautiful Fall pieces. Aren’t these dishes gorgeous?

Weekly Applications

I finished Numbers, and I am now in Deuteronomy. There are so many nuggets! Deuteronomy chapter 8 was wonderful in itself. Here are a few applications from the week.

  • Deut. 3:21-22
    • When you are facing uncertain times, remember what the Lord has done for you in the past.
    • Let the Lord fight your battles for you. Don’t try to handle them on your own.
  • Deut. 4:40 The key to true prosperity is in obeying the Lord.
  • Deut. 7:22 There is protection in waiting on God’s timing!
  • Deut. 8:2-3
    • We learn humility in hard times.
    • We learn to trust the Lord in trials.
    • We see His provision in our need.

Upcoming Book

A Preview

I am still working on the technical piece of making this available. Here is a little information about this upcoming book:

  • Title – A,B,C’s of Proverbs 31 for Girls
  • Each letter of the alphabet has:
    • An applicable verse taken from Proverbs 31:10-31
    • A vocabulary “character” word with the definition
    • A general life application for that character trait
    • A personal application/reflection
    • A journal entry to record their thoughts
  • It ends with all of Proverbs 31:10-31 on one page.

I hope you enjoy some of these ideas. Please share any thoughts, ideas, recipes, or applications you have.

Have a Grace & Joy-filled day!

  1. Love all the pieces you found at the yard sale and online too, Susan, They feel like such a special way to celebrate the season. It’s still really hot and humid in Florida and while I’m not ready to break out the pumpkins just yet, I am excited for all the cozy vibes fall brings. Especially, where pumpkin spice lattes are concerned! Hugs, CoCo

    1. It is still really hot here in Texas as well – unseasonably hot! I haven’t brought out the pumpkins yet either, but I am sure ready for some cooler weather! ๐Ÿ˜Š
