“The Commandments of Christ” (Introduction)

“…Lately I have had a desire to return to the four gospels and read what Christ’s commandments are…”

I think I am going to try to blog today. I still have other series that I need to finishmy “Loving Pursuit” series and a couple of others that I started and then abandoned about a year ago. But I have to feel “lead” whenever I write anything.  Recently I have had this verse on my mind:  
 
 If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15
 
Ever since my early teens I have wanted to be an obedient follower of Christ.
At times my heart would cool and the lure of the world would entice me for a season here and there. Yet even then, I had that drawing going on inside meconvicting me, and eventually compelling me to return to the Lord.

Autumnal Tasks

I enjoy her blog so much. She is such a thoughtful and inspiring author.

Autumn is here, rustling all of the leaves

Soon ’twill be time to take care of the eaves

Last time we didn’t, we paid a big price

The eavestroughs were clogged, a magnet for ice

And speaking of leaves, I’ve had cause to wonder

Why don’t they stay near their trees over yonder?

Why does the wind blow them into our place

And speaking of wind, there’s a shutter gone loose

Far up near the roof, nearly high as the spruce

And if it should fall, it may land on our heads

Or just fly away as we sleep in our beds

~~

And speaking of beds, there’s the garden to tend

And errors we really must hasten to mend

Those wild strangling vines and the tough creeping Jenny

You put up with one and you end up with many.

Scripture reference;

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

If you are looking for a cheerful plant chrysanthemums are a great choice. There are so many different kinds. There are tall mums and short mums; single flowered daisy-like mums, and pompom shaped mums. The chrysanthemums that you buy from a florist can be planted in the ground, but usually will not survive the winter.

Most people plant mums, so they can enjoy their blooms in the fall, but they actually bloom in spring/summer. How do you solve this dilemma? You pinch them! Just reach down and pinch off the little flower buds whenever you see them (every 2-4 weeks). Stop pinching them after July 4th. Then you should be…
