“God is not a belief to which you give your assent. God becomes a reality whom you know intimately, meet everyday, one whose strength becomes your strength, whose love, your love. Live this life of the presence of God long enough and when someone asks you, “Do you believe there is a God?” you may find yourself answering, “No, I do not believe there is a God. I know there is a God.”~Ernest Boyer, Jr.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul and with all your might.~Deuteronomy 6:5

When did it happen

Summer has been so long and dry this year, until last week I did not even think about Fall clothes or anything with sleves. But early last week as I looked out my kitchen window this is what I saw.

Over night it seemed the dogwood had turned from tired summer green to bright red, the sun filtering through looking more cool than the summer sun and in the back drop of the old barn it screamed Fall. Suddenly in an instant Fall was awoken in my soul!
When did that happen I thought,had Fall snuck up on me? This year I think it did I have been so busy with my schedule I had forgotten to look for the first signs of Fall. Birmingham is a beautiful city in the Fall with so many trees we get great color, and this year it is a real treat as I thought we wouldn't have any color because of the drought.
