Just Enjoying His Glory

Just another beautiful cool morning filled with blessings from above. Enjoying His glory.  God is so good isn't He?  I'm praying for this presidential election coming up as He expects us to.  Praying that God blesses America and that our leaders turn this country back into the God fearing country history proves it was and should be. 

Here on Lillie Mae Acres, our family scripture verse is:

This is not just a pile of words.  We fully trust God to help us every day, we trust Him with every aspect of our lives, and that includes whatever happens in this presidential election.  But we have prayed about every politician both local, state, and national.  We're proud to be Americans and are proud to exercise our right to vote.  Our household votes by absentee ballot each year due to our schedules and the location of our polling place.  Our ballot was two pages both sides (4 pages), so it was not an easy thing just to sit down and fill out.  But God has a plan as He always has.  He has a plan for this great nation, for the state you live in, and the community you live in.  He has a plan for you and your family, your home.  

I don't want to take even a second for granted.  I don't want to let a blessing pass me by without recognising it and thanking Him for it.  Every breath I take, every penny that enters our pockets.  Thank you God for your blessings on me and my loved ones.   
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week with beautiful weather. 
I'm getting a little nervous about these holidays hurling up on us.  Can you believe how fast this year has flown?  I guess the older we get the faster time passes.  Do you feel that way too?  Are you all decorated for fall and Thanksgiving yet?  When will you decorate for Christmas?

Good Cool Crisp Morning To Ya!

Good morning.  It's finally chilly here almost every morning and evening so we sure are taking advantage of that. 
The leaves are falling and crunching under our feet.  And the floors are cooler under our tootsies when we crawl out of bed.  I've been enjoying a Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer in my afternoon coffee. 

Rufus enjoys the cool grass and crunchy leaves under his belly.
Matt took Rufus riding Sunday afternoon and he enjoyed that!

Our stick family is complete.  I was finally able to add a family dog to represent Rufus.  Look at him, he looks like he's chomping on Shadow's tail.  

A busy puppy always has to nap in between activities. 

Thanks for stopping by this morning.  Have a blessed week.

It's A Bouncing Boy

Meet Rufus Jack Jones.  He's a beautiful bouncing baby boy, all white German Shepherd born 4 1/2 months ago on my birthday.  That's right, mommy (that's me) and Rufus share the same birthday.  How neat it that?

Builder Man (that's what I'm calling that sweet hubby of mine these days) and I have been praying for the perfect male GSDog to become part of our family.  A friend told Matthew about him and everything worked out.  I knew I loved him before I even seen a picture.  I just knew.  And when we did see a picture of him, he already looked just like a Rufus and just like the perfect little one we would love to share our home with.

I picked him up after work tonight.  His picture did not do him justice.  He is adorable with an adorable personality.  Sweet little thing that we're already spoiling.

Rufus on his way home to his new life on the farm.   

Rufus all tuckered out from exploring, playing, and being loved on.
I think Rufus is really going to get used to all this attention in no time.
