"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

this morning's vittles

It is with great effort that I submit another pictureless post.  I've waited l-o-n-g minutes just to do this.  It's definitely not picture storage space, I took care of that last month.  No, it's the computer..  I'm just going to continue to milk this one for all she's got knowing full well there is nothing else to be done this year.

I sit and type while a pink glow thins across the rimrock and cars begin their daily pilgrimage west.. to work, to schools.  The sound of tires on rain-pooled asphalt is comforting from where I sit in my cozy cotton flannels with steaming coffee.  Once again I'm thankful to be enclosed in these warm walls while the world rushes by.  The girls will be bouncing down in a few minutes.  I can hear them rousing upstairs.  As always God is good.  Today I am listening.  I've asked Him to speak and I am listening with expectation.  I've been in Proverbs this morning and already there is direct communication from my loving Abba.  Isn't it marvelous the way He feeds us when we are hungry?  His pages are full of rich, nourishing meat and bread.. more satisfying than the eggs and toast I fed my husband just before he left to enter 'the pilgrimage'.  
I'm feeling another growl coming on so I'm off to feast some more on the Word of Life...  To all who are hungry, let them eat!

Enjoy this beautiful day full of rich blessings and sing songs of praise to the One who is generous. 



  1. It's nice to see you here, Debbie. You are a treasure.
    Yay for eggs and toast. I need some right now!
    Love love love and wishes for a calm and peaceful day flooded with the Holy Spirit! God be with you.

  2. If we only slow down long enough to listen, it's amazing how the Lord feeds us.
    Joyful day to you my friend.

  3. I have been listening and will continue to listen and draw upon the strength he offers because really, sometimes that is all that keeps
    me going.

  4. He surrounds us with lovely visual images as you have so well recorded in this place today. (no photos needed with your writing)

    Under His wing...another good thought as we settle in on a cool, windy day.

  5. Debbie,
    I love the words of this post. Beautiful.
    Thank you!

  6. Maybe they should put Proverbs in a box and called it "the breakfast of champions..." I agree with Cathy, Debbie; no pictures needed. You are an artist with words. :)

  7. You know what? Your words are so beautiful that you hardly even need photographs. I, too, am in a hungry season...working through the "-ians"!

  8. This was a beautiful post... even without pictures! Thank you!

  9. You know, no pictures is a good challenge to us. You shared Truth and Beauty and I couldn't agree more. Hugs from tx.

  10. Debbie, thank you for sharing beauty and speaking truth here. Needing that reminder. xoxo

  11. that was a breath of fresh air.
