A talk with God

I have been dealing with the holiday blues and decided I needed to go for a walk and talk to God today!
It was a misty foggy day but very quiet and peaceful, kind of serene day!

Up this road

And down this road and thru the woods

A funny birch tree with mushrooms up the sides!
Do you suppose that is where the fairies sit to watch the world go by?

Beautiful mosses growing here and there!

Sortof a Heart shaped tree trunk!
Y....... :-)
So many different shapes and sizes!

God is a master creator....
do you ever just stop and look around at the beauty surrounding you?
We are so very blessed and that is what I needed to remind myself.....
I am so blessed and thankful for all the family, friends and beautiful home we have, our health and children, our beautiful grand babies, and knowing that God knows whats best for me and he knows what I need and he will take care of that! I need to hand my worries over to him because he is the only one that knows what will become of them!
Pray more...worry less!

God Bless you all and I hope you have a wonderful Thanks giving!

You are due for some snow.
What a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving.
White and serene.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi, Dolly! A good brisk walk with God is a great cure for the blues! That and a little progesterone cream! Ha! ♥

What a magical plae to take a walk! The trees and mosses in the mist are almost surreal, it looks so peaceful. I had some holiday blues last year, bad. Sometimes getting the decorations out helps. I'll be praying for you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Dolly my friend!

I know what you mean about the Holiday Blues as our family is very fractured & it is VERY hard to not sink into "The Rabbit Hole".
I try to keep God in mind & enjoy Him....
Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello there!☺
I found your delightful blog recently and I'm so glad I did!

Thank you for sharing your walk. I especially loved the mushrooms on the tree...yes...I think that is a fairy high-rise apartment building and those are their balconies...teehee!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Dolly - there is nothing like a walk through nature's beauty to put things in perspective. What a lovely post! I know that those kind of walks help me to stop and listen.

Hi Dolly, I found your blog on Celestinas Blog. I loved your talk with God. I do that often. We are in a quandry here with issues like medicare for my hubby, health insurance for me, finances, and the list goes on. Finally, I decided to go to our church chapel and there I laid it all in His hands. It is easy to fall into the winter blues even though it is early, but somehow, God has a handle on it all. Trust is all we need. Easy to say, hard to do.
I like your blog very much. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Oh Dolly, the blues come to all of us at sometime in our lives. You just happened to get them this time around. What a beautiful walk, it would be impossible for me to be down if I had the forest with all her magic near by. Just look at all the gifts from above that greeted you. Life is a miracle and we are all very lucky to be alive to enjoy it everyday. All we need do is open our eyes and our hearts to let the magic in. Happy Thanksgiving sweetie, Char

Hi Dolly, I really needed to hear the words on your lovely post, thank you. So glad you stopped by...Good luck in the give away!

I might just have to take you up on that some day Dolly, I would probably never want to leave your beautiful life, Char

At times a walk is just what the Great Physician ordered. In those time he walks with us and talks with us. I agree and hear you, worry less and pray more. That was a message for me today too. I appreciate your honesty, some days are just plain hard. Blessings and encouragement to you.

What mircles of nature and god you found on your walk. We all need to get outside and see what we're mssing and sometimes while we're out there things just seem to fall into pWonderblog.

Hi, Dolly!
Isn't it great that GOD permits us to keep asking "why" ... "why not" ... and "are we there yet" without getting upset and threatening to "turn the car around" ... lol! Sometimes we don't know the answers, but sometimes I can't even figure out the questions! Nice to know those things are taken care of!
Hugs, sweetie!
Betty :)


Dear Dolly,
I hope you were able to walk away your blues. There is beauty all around.. even when we think things look barren... the trees and such, you were still able to see the beauty in them. God bless you!

That is a lovely post!! I do enjoy the beauty around me but need to give thanks more often.
Thank you for visiting me and to answer your question:
Our wood pellet stove heats the main part of our home but the family room needs the propane fireplace to be warm.
Our fireplace is the enviro Empress but we have had to have it serviced a few times -not sure if we got a lemon or if others have problems with it too.
our daughters both had the enviro basic one -it is not as pretty but they do work better then ours.
I do enjoy a warm source of heat to curl up to and they are less work then a wood stove but still require cleaning every week with a shop vac.
When it is cold we leave it on all night too but turned down some and we would go through two bags of pellets in 24 hours(our home is older)so it is still not cheap.
I hope this helps-if you have any more questions let me know.

Take care,

Dolly, your words in this post are exactly what I was saying out loud to my hubby this morning. So true--He's there, knows best, is in control. Your photos are a beautiful capture of his creation that reminds us these things.
