 With the days growing noticeably cooler, it's not hard to tell that winter weather is shortly coming. I've been trying to enjoy as many days outdoors as I can before it's too cold to do so.
 The Zinnias that I planted earlier this summer have bloomed prolifically, and have been a bright patch of color on the edge of our yard. There are reds, pink, purple, and shades of orange; all beautiful! I thought I better get some photos of them before the frost kills them off for the year. :)

 A bright Black Eyed Susan stands out with the other flowers.

 A beautiful Moss Rose that my mom was happy to have growing this year!
She has memories of her mom growing these, so I was glad this one (out of the three or four plants that we planted) survived.
 This has been one of the best years for Mums! The flowers are a much more beautiful bright red than this picture shows, and really add nice color to our flower beds. This plant is
a division from one of our established bushes that was growing so huge that it was needing divided. Both the original plant and the division are thriving, so I hope to do it with more of them sometime.
Some white Mums that were planted last year.
We took a walk to the creek near us recently also, and I enjoyed it! The water of the creek is very clear at this time of year, with a nice sandy bottom and banks alongside it. As I was walking further
down the creek, a large deer jumped across in front of me, and it was interesting noticing paw prints from Raccoons and other animals in the sand along the creek as well.
Just thankful to the Lord for the many beautiful days this year, His amazing creation that we can see, and enjoyable times spent with family!

Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
Psalms 30:4

Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
Psalms 106:1

The fear of the LORD

Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long. -Proverbs 23:17

By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
-Proverbs 16:6

He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. -Psalms 145:19

Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
-Psalms 86:11
