My heart and prayers go out to my family and friends in San Diego (my birthplace) as well as everyone in California affected by the fires. These are difficult times.

Isaiah 41:10 says
So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

This is a photo I took recently above my house, it looks like a face in the middle of this amazing cloud formation. It reminds me that God is always with us even through the storms. Now that is comfort.

I love white pumpkins, but I didn’t used to.

Way back in the olden days when my kids were little (3 of them at least, one still is little, she’s 9) we would get all excited about going to the pumpkin patch to pick out the happiest looking pumpkins. Of course I planned to decorate with them until it was time to carve smiling faces and roast the seeds. Well, like I said years ago, I was thinking “orange”, you know “fall colors”. When we got to the patch, my kids ran to a bin of white pumpkins. I had never seen white pumpkins. They looked alien to me. Sort of albino-ish. Weird. Ew. I tried talking my kids out of the “void of color” pumpkins, but nothing doing, they had their hearts set on these white balls. Oh good gravy, fine! Well, we got them home and they decided to draw faces on them with a black marker and I added some cream blush for rosy cheeks. They actually turned out hilarious.

Now, “white anything” is chic and hip!

White pumpkins…I “get it” now…they are here to stay, along with memories of a happy fall day.
