October

ncAnneOctobersnm

“This was one of my favorite books when I was growing up,” my mom told me years ago when she gave me a copy of Anne of Green Gables. It quickly became a favorite of mine, too. I loved reading about the imaginative Anne Shirley and her life on the farm with Marilla and Matthew. It was one of those books I couldn’t put down and didn’t want to end. But of course it did have a wonderful ending with an inspiring quote (“God’s in His heaven, all’s right with the world”). I read and reread the book several times, finding out much later that there were actually sequels to the book! But I always liked the first book best. I still have my copy somewhere and when I saw this quote from the book, it made me want to read it again! 🙂

I can just imagine what Anne would enjoy about the month of October–the beautiful colors, the cool autumn air, the gently falling leaves. Hope you find many things to enjoy about your October, too!

God has made everything beautiful for its own time. ECCLESIASTES 3:11 (NLT)

Every Flower

We…see God reaching out to us in every wind that blows, every sunrise and sunset, every cloud in the sky, every flower that blooms, and every leaf that fades.

Living Life with a Passion

God gives us different passions so everything He wants done in the world will get done.

RICK WARREN, pastor and author, from Daily Hope with Rick Warren

Rick Warren also writes, “God is a passionate God….As you grow closer to Him, He’ll give you a passion for something He cares about deeply so you can be a spokesperson for Him in the world. It may be a passion about a problem, a purpose, a principle, or a group of people. Whatever it is, you’ll feel compelled to speak up about it and do what you can to make a difference.”

What has God given you a passion for?

He Cares

And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you.

LUKE 12:28 (NLT)

It’s comforting to know that God will always provide for us and take care of us. It’s so easy to fall into worry and hopelessness when we’re going through tough times, but He’s always there, always caring for us!

“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart….The Lord is gracious and merciful. He provides food for those who fear him; He remembers His covenant forever. He has shown His people the power of His works, in giving them the inheritance of the nations. The works of His hands are faithful and just….” PSALM 111:1, 4-7 (ESV)

Wishing you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!
