It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

Baby birds for a friend

My friend Karen needs more prayers.


















Even though she hangs in there with all the tests and hospital visits, each day is a struggle.























On Thursday she goes in for a kidney biopsy and an ultrasound.


















Please keep her in your prayers. She is trying to be brave, but it's hard.

The baby birds are for you, Karen. I hope you can smile at them, because they are saying hello to you.

Dear Heavenly Father
I lift Karen up before you and ask you to fulfill her need and reveal yourself to her in ways that will speak comfort to her in her times of uncertainty. I thank you Father for hearing me. Amen
