Ready or not...... the pumpkins are coming out!  Yes....I'm seeing them everywhere!   I even have a few myself that I need to put out, but just haven't quite been in the mood to do so.

I was sitting here this afternoon, thinking,  I really need to get busy with Fall decorating.   BUT....it's almost a 100 degrees outside and with these kind of temps, I really can't get very excited to decorate.

I usually get right into the flow of things and already have the "Orange" color running throughout the house.  Just a little behind this year!! 


 I've never really thought about it before, but it looks like FALL decorations get to stay out longer than most other Holiday/Seasonal decorations.  From the 1st of September through the last weekend in November, is certainly a long time to get to hang around.   


The truth is......by the end of Summer, I am looking forward to FALL and too all of the FUN things that accompanies this particular season.   

Even if it is a 100 degrees.....I say, lets crank down the air conditioner and bring out those pumpkins!  Looks like my day tomorrow will be spend DECORATING!!

Hope you all are enjoying this Day that the Lord has made...

I know I am!!

I am thankful for Answered prayers.   We have a grandson that travels quite a bit with his job.   I pray for his protection every single day.   I pray for God to surround each of our kids and grandchildren with a huge hedge of protection.   

Tucker has been out in Odessa, Texas, working this week.   On Saturday, Sam got a call from Tuck, asking what was going on out there.  Sam could tell by the sound of his voice, that he was very uncomfortable....not stressed....but uneasy!!  Tucker was called out on a run going to Carlsbad, NM......and as he was traveling down I-20 he could see vehicles with windows shot out as well as bullet holes through some of the cars.  He also saw MANY highway patrol cars as well as police, and heard many sirens.

Seems that Tucker was called out within a very short time after the Odessa/Midland shooter began his shooting spree on that exact highway.   

I am extremely sad for the lives that were taken.  We need to pray for the families, whose loved ones loss their lives.  We need to pray for this area of our Country.  We need to pray for our Country.

I am EXTREMELY  thankful for God's protection upon our grandson.  

After making his trip to Carlsbad, Tucker had to come back through Odessa, Midland and Big Springs.   These are the exact areas that law enforcement was telling people to avoid.   I appreciate all who worked so hard to end this situation.    It was a very long night for Tucker, and one that was filled with many uneasy feelings....

Just this weekend.....at one of our local Walmart stores, a man was arrested for pulling a gun out and threatening to shoot people.  He was upset at the cashier and when she went to get the manager, the guy pulled the gun out.  

I'm not posting about these instances to get political replies, as I don't prefer to express politics on my blog......   Many of us have different opinions about the gun laws.     I enjoy all of my friends, and for this reason, I will not publish political responses.  

It is very sad that we now live in a world where we have to be extremely watchful of the areas we go to......this includes, the grocery store, shopping, restaurants, and even church.   Makes me sad!   

Amazon Prime looks better and better each day.   Order what you need, have it delivered  and stay home.    

We are not to live in FEAR, but we do need to use great wisdom when we are out and about.  

Blessings to all.
Shug!
