From the Inside

Here We Go ...

a caroling 🎶 ♬🎶


Christmas carol (also called a noël, from the French word meaning "Christmas") is a carol (song or hymn) whose lyrics are on the theme of Christmas, and which is traditionally sung on Christmas itself or during the surrounding holiday season.

Seeking Balance - Day 3

Going into Day three of my Advent challenge and it has become obvious that the process I am using is in fact undermining my quest to simplify my Advent season by attempting to create a page update plus a daily post. The page tab at the top of my blog will now be an archive of the daily Advent posts.

Advent Word and Photo Challenge

Week one - Day 3 - 'find favor'
     How does your home environment illustrate the favor God has shown you, both in terms of blessing and of responsibility?

Reflection:
There is no question that God has  'favored' me in terms of my home and its location. A modest dwelling in a quiet neighborhood where everyone looks out for one another.

In terms of my own responsibility, Proverbs 31 comes immediately to mind. It's an ongoing process with room for improvement but as I look around I see evidence that it is the desire of my heart to watch over the affairs of my household and I love (almost) every minute of it.

Would I 'find favor' in God's sight in this area? I think so. (leaving more time for Him to correct and admonish my other short comings) Praise Him for his mercy and long suffering.

Proverbs 31 Home Tour:
 planning; organization; attention to financing and spending; feeding and clothing my family


Merry Christmas

Seeking Balance - Day 2

The Holiday Season continues to ramp up atMuldoon as I continue my attempt to seek a balance between the celebration of Christmas and the holiday activities that will abound for the next few weeks.

While clicking around on the first day of Advent, I found a word study and photo challenge that I am following. I have created a page for that purpose where I will reflect on the study and I will be sharing the day's photo(s) here on my regular blog page.

If you would like to, you can click the tab at the top or HERE for each day's 'word' and 'photo' challenge and my response.

These are my photos from Week One 'Home' and Day Two  'Discern'.

Seeking Balance

The Holiday Season is ramping up already atMuldoon and in an attempt to seek a balance between the celebration of Christmas and the holiday activities that will abound for the next few weeks I went in search of a means to meet that goal.

While clicking around on the first day of Advent, I found a word study and photo challenge that I am following. I have created a page for that purpose where I will reflect on the study and I will be sharing the day's photo(s) here on my regular blog page.

A Favorite 'Fence 'Post'

'Fence Post'
as in blog post

On this Thanksgiving Day I am thankful for
Tex/Wis Theresa and 'Good Fences'.

Good Fences was one of the first link-ups I posted too when I came back to blogging after a break. So I went back to what is, or close to, the first 'fence post' from that time; April 2014 
(photos from 2010).

Note that I hadn't yet picked up on the whole linking process and it appears I didn't even know the right day of the week-haha.

and from experience he knew it would be lovely.

Is It Bugged?

Unusual for us to see Woodpeckers on the corn.

 We suspect bugs in the cobs.

edit: The RG examined the corn and believes
indianmeal moths have laid eggs in the kernals.
