A Wink From God

If you know me even a little, then you know that I am in the midst of my most favorite time of the year. My daughter and I drove to her orthodontist appointment yesterday and my heart was just so happy the whole drive there. The trees are in their autumn splendor here up North and every turn of the road seemed to show an even more beautiful sight.

That evening, my daughter and littlest boy and I drove down the road a little ways because of a sign that read, "Pumpkins $3.00".  I was over the moon! It was like God gave me a little wink and said, "I know how much you love this time of year, so I surprised you with a field full of pumpkins right by your house." Well, that is how I like to think of God. He loves giving us delightful surprises.

My little boy wasn't in the picture taking mood at this moment.

His good mood has returned!

Of course, I had to drive back there a few minutes later. This time big brother joined us.  Here they are giving us their rendition of "Waiting for the Great Pumpkin". It did seem like Linus and Sally should be sitting out there with them.

And now the front of our home looks like this.  I just need to add some yellow mums.

Happy October everyone!! There's joy all around - maybe even down the road from your house:)

  1. Wonderful Pics! I love the pumpkin patch - going is such a fun fallevent for our family - thanks for inspiring me to plan it!!

  2. What fun pictures! Fun Fun Fun. After I read this, I went and got some pumpkins and mums. :-) So cheery now.

  3. Oh, that's great! Did you find the pumpkin patch near our house? I still need to get some mums.

    1. I didn't! I thought, if it was going to happen, then I'd just better run to the store and pick some up. So I did. :-)

  4. Thank you for sharing about the pumpkin patch! I took my boys there this week and they loved it. We ended up on the far side of the patch and had to tote two very large pumpkins to the car using a beach towel....laughing all the while!


Please leave me a comment. I would love to hear from you!
