Brief Sightings

We went past a farm stand today, piled high with late summer melons and early fall pumpkins. The furnace is humming, warm against the first chilly evening. Twilight comes earlier and earlier now, and a few trees sport red and orange leaves among green.
Summer is hanging on valiantly, with warm afternoons and bright blue skies, but for how long?

Hi Holly, I've been so thankful as well, that summer is hanging around just a bit longer. I'm in the Pacific NW, where we're blessed to NOT have hurricanes or huge storms...and this year we're having a wonderful, warm, Indian Summer.

I apologize for taking so long to write and thank you for your comment on my blog (when I was hit with Shingles). I so appreciated your note and that you took the time to stop by to visit. You were so right...I think sometimes God does need to get our attention and slow us down. I know I tend to try to do too much and need to work on setting priorities for what's really important.

I've been working against the clock the past couple of weeks to finish my newest book and get it on my editor's desk in time, as well as keeping up with life in general. I'm doing so much better now health wise...but still trying to not get in over my head with "busyness" and stress...a hard balance to reach.

Blessings, and I hope you'll drop by again. Miralee Ferrell

Miralee, thanks for stopping by -- I'm glad to hear you're feeling better, and wish you the best with your new book! I'd love to hear more about how you're learning to balance "busyness" and stress.
