As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Too Much of a Good Thing?

Isn't autumn the best? From the cooler temperatures, to the bursts of color, to the new nut brown sweater I received for my birthday, to the return of soup to the menu, I love it!

All during the summer, I am watching for signs of autumn. The appearing of the reddish berries on the hedge is the first July! The shortening days and the display of school supplies in the stores say "fall is coming." And then the first mums and spicy pumpkin candles appear and I succumb. Time to put away all that speaks of summer and fetch the box from the attic ask Ron to fetch the box from the attic that contains everything that speaks of fall. (And fall does a lot of speaking around here.)

Autumn is in every room...

Living Room

Dining Room

(even the) Bathroom ;-)

...and outside too.

So it has happened that I have something extra that I'd like to give away! If you'd like a little something new to add to your autumn decor, then check back in later today for details on my Fall Giveaway!
