“Furthermore, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are worthy love, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, or if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 (Geneva)

For the blue of the sky against the golds, reds, oranges, greens and purples of the trees that makes autumn in the part of the world so special. You go for the big box of crayons! Thank you.

For cheese, and bacon, and that through Christ, we needn’t keep kosher. Thank you.

For mercies new every morning, for all gentle thoughts and mild. Thank you.
