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?
You probably know how much I love dogs, and I love shopping at Belk. Look what I just found as I was perusing the Belk website! It is even in the colors to match my new dishes! I may have to get this one – so cute!
Please share your Fall inspirations with me. For other ideas, here are a few posts I have enjoyed this week:

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.
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!
