“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭91:1‬ ‭

sss241 O to grace how great a debtor, daily I’m constrained to be! 
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,  bind my wandering heart to thee. 
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,  prone to leave the God I love; 
here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above
 “I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.””
‭Psalm‬ ‭91:2‬ ‭“For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.”‭‭
Psalm‬ ‭91:3‬ ‭
“He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.”‭‭
Psalm‬ ‭91:4‬ ‭
 An autumn sunrise over our pasture! My nephew took first prize for his pumpkin creation…genius! Lila Grey, or maybe I should say Raggedy Ann, looks like she is enjoying Trick or Treating!  Leaves changing to autumn hues beneath a cobalt sky! A quiet and peaceful walk… …with leaves rustling under my feet!IMG_1366 Fish paillard with pears, lemon, and mint at Chez Fon Fon“You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day,”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭91:5‬ ‭
IMG_1373 On our visit to St, Petersburg, Russia, The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood was a must see.  The medieval Russian architecture houses 7500 square meters of mosaics completely covering the walls and ceilings…amazing, to say the least!

  “I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD!'”

        querida Pam, el placer es mío también. He pasado muy malos meses de verano por la enfermedad de mi marido (cáncer de garganta). Ahora está perfecto!!!
        Dios ha sido muy bueno con nosotros y me ha mostrado el camino de Kathy (a delightsome life) y a través de su blog y el suyo, y me he sentido muy bien porque transmiten ambas mucha serenidad para el cuerpo y para el alma.
        Muy agradecida por publicar tantas cosas bellas. He aprendido que la distancia y el idioma no son barreras ya.

        Dear Pam, the pleasure is mine. I had a really bad summer for my husband’s disease (throat cancer). Now it is perfect !!!
        God has been very good to us and has shown me the way to Kathy (a delightsome life) and through his blog and his, and I felt very good because a lot of serenity to transmit both body and soul.
        Very grateful for publishing so many beautiful things. I learned that distance and language barriers are not already.

    Well, better late than never, as they say! I finally had a few moments to come back and catch up on your posts. I’m so glad I didn’t miss this one. Lovely leaves, skies, steeples, and trick-or-treater! Congrats to your nephew. I know you are proud of him. Have a blessed week!

    Pam thanks for sharing your pictures with us. I must admit I am a bit partial to those Fall colors. Nothing makes me happier thatn to be among the trees in the Autumn. Are you going to have more pictures of St. Petersburg for us soon?

    Pam, I always really enjoy this series. That hamburger pumpkin creation is fabulous! I remember when my oldest who is now 41 was a cute little raggedy ann like that. Thanks for the fond memory! and thanks for sharing with SYC.
