Fall came late to Ohio this year. This picture was taken on October 15 and one can only see small patches of autumn colors. I love this picture of Ron taken at a church staff picnic. He was so relaxed and had a natural smile. I wish our picture for the church directory looked this good.
Am saying no more tonight, because I am so tired, I would likely make a major mistake.
Good night all and keep praying that God works out the election to the benefit of Christians.
Remember, we need you who are Christian to vote.

For a number of reasons, I've not been out much to see the fall colors this year and I do love them. It is my favorite time of the year.
So, Sunday after lunch, I asked Ron to take me for a drive through a local park here at the lakes. I had been there earlier, before leaves had started to tun and imagined it would be quite beautiful by now. He obliged and off we went. It was just a short trip, so it wasn't long before I was disappointed. Oh there were some very pretty sites there, like the one here, but I was expecting lovely colors all along the road. But for some reason, I think maybe the dense trees had been protected from the harsh cold. Most of way down that road, almost everything was green...even Maple trees. But there was enough to make me very glad we were there.
This is a big night here in Ohio. Our Indians baseball team is in the play-offs and they are on a winning streak. Even I, not especially a sports fan, am cheering them on to their win.
You should have seen the cool cake a friend brought here tonight to share with friends. It looked and smelled scrumptious. Terrible time to be on a diet. But I was able to avoid it.
Please continue to pray for the vote.
Pastor Shares Concerning TrumpA pastor, Dalton Douglas, shares some powerful thoughts concerning Donald Trump: "I've heard too many say lately that we, the American people have no choice in this November election!Do you really think that God would leave us with no choice?Come on people! Where's your faith? He has heard our cries!In defense of Donald Trump: Try to keepthis in mind,

It is a good thing I wasn't there in Colorado that day. I would not have been able to resist this fellow's smile. It was just way to obvious that he thought that bear was the best thing he had ever seen.
Please continue to pray for the election and for those who have suffered greatly since we were 'given' the government healthcare problem and those who have dealt with hate because of all the devision being stirred up here in the states.
Dear Father, please teach us to love again. Amen

We love our granddaughter and son-in-law; but I just can't understand this ANIME stuff... It is way too counter-culture for me...at least its counter to my nature. I walk in the light and stay away from the dark as much as possible. I guess I'm just too old to appreciate it.
I do however, enjoy seeing Ashley dress up like ANIME characters ...not all the costumes are as modest as hers are, but the ones she wears are modest.
We are blessed by our children and grandchildren.
This evening ur daughter Kim came to see us from North Carolina. She said it has been unseasonably hot, in the 90's, there recently and when she got here it was about 48 degrees. Yes, she brought warm clothing. She grew up here, but has been in the south so long that cold is cold!
Don't be out in the cold on voting day. If you haven't voted already, please go to the polls and vote your conscience...remembering that even though King David was called a man after God's own heart, he made sinful decisions when he saw Bathsheba. No one is perfect. Some of the greatest of us have sins that can be found by those who really try.
But then there are those among us who practice sin day after day. Of which would God approve? Again, I tell you...God called David a man after his own heart.

Since I'm heading to bed now, I'll leave you with the chance to enjoy this little kitty without a lot of rhetoric from me.
I would like to let you know that a large group of us went to the movies tonight to see an EXCELLENT movie, called I'm Not Ashamed. I can't remember enjoying a movie as much as I did this one. First it was a true story, so that I knew how it ended...so there was no suspense, which I really like. I'm usually trying to figure out the end from the very first scene. Even without that challenge, I loved the movie. It was about the Columbine shooting in the 90's, but more than that it was especially about one of the students there. So it didn't play so much into the dark side of the movie, but the interesting journal of one of the girls.

Although it had been six months since Valentine Day, the hearts won out for this layout. Longer story short...Mason went to Chick-fil-A and got a large piece of chicken shaped like a heart. It impressed he and his mom enough that they got this picture.
I started working on this post early tonight, since I've been falling apart on the job late at night. Well, after getting started, I got a notice from Words with Friends on FaceBook. I am not exaggerating. My friend just kept playing over and over. We must have played each of 6 games 4 times, maybe 5. Now here I am exhausted again. I am trying to cut down on games, since they strain my brain this late at night...and at my age, I don't need that.
I am not neglecting my friend and her need to keep her mind active...she said that, not me. But I am neglecting those who read my blog...and you are important to me. I love you all...yes, even if I don't know you. It is commanded by the Lord to love our fellowman as we love ourselves.
Please keep up the prayers. And join the nationwide movement of Christians committed to fighting for faith this election. It is up to us to protect our children and grandchildren.
