“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J. R. R. Tolkien — The Fellowship of the Ring

Prompts desperately needed! Thanks to Joyce at This Side of the Pond for providing them.

Look for Christ and you will find Him. And with Him, everything else.
It's now or never. This season has been particularly overwhelming for many reasons. My sincere apologies for being silent. Quiet is what I have needed these days.
From my home to yours...a blessed Christmas.

"May not and ought not the children of these fathers rightly say: 'Our fathers were Englishmen which came over this great ocean, and were ready to perish in this wilderness but they cried unto the Lord, and He heard their voice, and looked on their adversity...' Let them therefore praise the Lord, because He is good, and His mercies endure forever. Yea, let them which have been redeemed of the Lord, shew how He hath delivered them from the hand of the oppressor. When they wandered in the desert wilderness out of the way, and found no city to dwell in, both hungry, and thirsty, their soul was overwhelmed in them. Let them confess before the Lord His loving kindness, and His wonderful works before the sons of men. " ~William Bradford
Though I bequeath you no estate, I leave you in the enjoyment of liberty. ~ William Bradford

I am no longer able to sign in to my blog so that I can leave comments on yours. When I select the "sign in" button, I can get behind the page as I have done to post this. Still, when I return to my home page, I am not signed in nor can I sign in at your blog. Always something.
So far, I can still read at your blogs, but the way things are going...
Over and out for now at least...

My good friend Abby, who is apparently a good computer geek as well, was able to determine what was cranking Blogger—they don't like BRAVE. I do like Brave so will continue to use it for most things on this iPad. It is worth the effort of switching to Safari when visiting blogs. See what I go through just for you?! 😁 If I haven't yet arrived at your place, give me a little more time. I am deep into Thanksgiving cleaning to include shredding old documents and washing up dishes only used at this time of year. You know the drill. And now I know why I dislike Safari...it keeps freezing. Oh well, maybe my patience will return.
Hope to visit soon!

So here I am again as promised. Just as I was about to write this post, I heard footsteps on my stairs so went in search of whomever~whatever and found my sister-in-law Mary peeking in the garage window.
That caused her to jump. She was just wondering if I was in the garage working as I have been quite often of late. One thing led to another and pretty soon we were off for lunch. We both opted for hamburgers. They were huge. I couldn't eat all of mine and she couldn't eat all of hers. Nevertheless, lunch out was a pleasant diversion.
Last Friday, a rainy Friday, Laurel and I took off for our annual Leaf-Peeping Day. We began by eating lunch at one of our favorite places and for the next three hours, I spent a lot of time wondering where I was. Laurel knows a lot more roads than I do.
