Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Fall-ing

We are having some wonderful weather here in Southeastern Virginia! I love living in a part of the country that gets to experience all the season changes, but does not have to endure extreme weather. The leaves are finally turning beautiful colors and in another week or so we'll have approximately 90 bags raked up. Planning on taking a bag to school with me tomorrow. We'll be crunching them up and using them like glitter to decorate paper. My 4 year olds will love it!

Anyway, Glynis and I have spent plenty of time jumping in the leaves this past week. Isn't she a beauty? I wish she always looked (acted) so sweet. (see picture 3)

Lovely pumpkins aren't they? I opted to paint rather then carve.
My husband and sons carved a couple
and they turned out wonderful,
but they are long gone having dried up within a couple days.
And there you have it...The Real Glynis

Toot HIS Horn!

I use to be such a good blogger. Well... at least I was consistent! If you have time, go back to some of my older posts and take a peek.

I've just needed some inspiration!
And how's that for INSPIRATION?!

Last weekend I went on a retreat with the ladies of my church to Watermarks Camp in Scottsville, VA. What a memorable event!
We worshiped together and played together in one of God's most beautiful settings.
We watched video and studied Priscilla Shirer's book "He Speaks to Me."
What a great speaker she is. It was as if she were right there with us at camp. She made me laugh, but mostly she made me think about the obstacles in my life that keep me from hearing when God really wants me to listen. I am so ready to slow myself down! Life these days can be stressful and busy, can't they? Are you taking time to listen to what God has to tell you? Open your heart and He is there!!

If you're familiar with my blog then you know how much I love taking pictures...Talk about a great photo-op! Look at all I did in those 2 1/2 days! (almost killed myself on the high ropes course!)
