de-winterize it and then re-winterize it (I don't think those are words, but oh well).
The wooden deer came with the place and we've left them there.
So many wonderful memories here just sitting and talking with family and friends,
and at times just the two of us.
The grandkids love the bonfire and the oldest grandson is at the age
where he can help Grandpa Mike.
One night, the two of them had a "guy's night out" in a tent over in the clearing.
The little one demand so much attention because of their age
that we need to be careful
that the older two don't get ignored.
Here's the Monday Prayer.
Help me to discern the lies of the enemy so that
I don't give any credence to thoughts that are not
in alignment with Your truth.
Help me to examine my thoughts
in light of Your Word at all times.
Enable me to purify my thoughts and my heart
so that evil will not find a place in me.
Adjust my attitude to fit life in Your kingdom.
Overflow my heart with Your love, peace, joy, gentleness, kindness, and mercy
until my attitude is a blessing to all people at all times.
Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my mind and my heart.
From a Stormie Omartian Prayer Book.
Blessings to you all for a wonderful week!
