Simple + Southern Sunday No. 99

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;  he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing”
Zephaniah 3:17

I remember exactly where I was when I heard of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on our country.  It’s hard to believe it was 15 years ago…it seems just like yesterday.  

May we never forget the men and women who lost their lives on that tragic day…

“Oh the Lord, our strength and song! Highest praise to Him belongs
Christ the Lord, the Conquering King, Your Name we raise, Your triumphs sing
Praise the Lord, our mighty warrior! Praise the Lord, the glorious One!
By His hand we stand in victory”
Aaron Keyes

“But, as it is written, ‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him'”
I Corinthians 2:9

“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”
Galatians 2:20

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope”
Romans 15:13

“Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains”
James 5:7

Clara loves helping her mommy in the kitchen!

Sicilian donuts with mascarpone cream and warm Nutella chocolate sauce…bliss! 

The famous Space Needle in Seattle!

“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,  knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ”
Colossians 3:23-24

“The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever”
Isaiah 40:8

We guess the “king of the barnyard” can strut his feathers whenever he wants!

“I was glad when they said to me, Let us go to the house of the Lord!’”
Psalm 122:1

    I enjoy reading all your posts, but I especially love your Sunday posts. Sometimes, because of health reasons, I don’t get to attend church so I get to meditate on the scripture verses you write and enjoy the pictures. What a wonderful way to worship – reading God’s word, seeing lovely places of worship and pictures of His beautiful creations. Thank you.

    Wonderful pictures and verses again today, Pam. No, none of us will never forget where we were on 9/11 fifteen years ago. Thanks for your uplifting message today from the Lord! Sabbath blessings~

    Hoy es un domingo muy especial. Como comentan las amigas anteriores, sería imposible no recordar el día 9/11. Siempre en nuestras oraciones todas esas personas que dejaron este mundo en tan infausto día.
    Gracias Pam por el regalo que todos los Domingos nos ofreces.
    Un abrazo, Dolores

    Today is a very special Sunday. As discussed earlier friends, it would be impossible not to remember the day 9/11. Always in our prayers all those people who left this world in such fateful day.
    Thanks for the gift Pam every Sunday offer us.
    A hug, Dolores

    • Dolores, es un día de recuerdo y oración! Que nunca olvidemos cómo esta tragedia afectó a tantos miles! Bendiciones, Pam

      Dolores, it is a day of remembrance and prayer! May we never forget how this tragedy affected so many thousands! Blessings, Pam

  4. Yes, Thank you, Pam for the gift you give every Sunday to us. Today, is indeed a day we could never forget!
    You must keep your camera in the car to capture all these special pics. Love the strutting turkey and the sweet little girl standing on the stool helping her Mommy! I see shots like these as I’m hurrying to and fro and think of you!

    I remember where I was too! I was at work and we had been reeling from the news…some of us were outside for a break and the Shanksville PA plane flew over. Well at that point we thought that the entire country must be under attack /never forget….

    Oh so many lovely photos but sweet little Clara in the kitchen?? That is just too cute!! 🙂

We love your comments!
