    Thank you, Pam! Yes, we need those pumpkin reminders of fall since our weather sure feels like summer. Ettie Grace is adorable, and I agree that cheesecake with fresh fruit is hard to beat. Beautiful pictures on this beautiful Sabbath! Thank you, Pam~

  2. Happy Sunday, Pam! Such beautiful pictures this morning. Hopefully, where you are it will cool down soon. We have been in the 90s with heat advisories all last week. We finally got some rain last night and it is only going to be 72 today. Fingers crossed that Fall is finally here. Have a blessed and wonderful day!!!

    • “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.”
      ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭91:1-4‬ ‭

      Let’s God’s Word comfort you! With love, Pam

      “El que habita al abrigo del Altísimo morará bajo la sombra del Omnipotente. Voy a decirle al Señor: “Mi refugio y mi fortaleza, mi Dios, en quien confío.” Y él te librará del lazo del cazador, de la peste destructora. Él te cubrirá con sus plumas, y debajo de sus alas estarás seguro; su fidelidad es un escudo y al pavés “.
      Salmos 91: 1-4
