One of the reasons I love October is that you never know what kind of weather it will be from day to day. It has been really warm this week, so enjoy, because the cold winds will blow! I bought these hydrangeas because the ones I have didn't bloom. I think there was a blight or disease because others have said the same thing. I beat the disease at least for the time being.

For years I tried to play similar games with God. I would make everything look sweet and beautiful on the outside when really I needed to let go, and let God deal with my stuff. Judging others, and looking at their faults made me feel like I was better. What a weak platform to stand on! It failed every time.

 Now that I am beginning to allow God to deal, I revel in uplifting others and enjoy seeing them proceed in life, but especially in their walk with God.  Be the one who is able to give a sincere compliment and make someone's day. "Set your minds on things above, not on the things of this earth. {Colossians 3:2} When we do this, we rejoice with those who rejoice, and connections are made. Too often relationships are not made because of ear phones and distractions that take us away from others. We may never know how much a kind word means to hurting soul. This is what our enemy wants. Don't give him the time of day!
