Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Gas Prices

The fluctuation of gas prices is aggravating!  It seems they always go up right before a holiday and then drops back down (trickle-down) after the holiday.  The Labor Day weekend is when it jumped up "over night" the last time to $2.45/gal.  That seems like price gouging to me!  Today I paid $2.28 for it at Walmart's Murphy USA in High Point.

I got 10 more tiki lights for the fire pit area.  Plus I got 3 lanterns, more oil, tons of citronella "bracelets" and spices for cooking at the fire pit.  I also got hot dogs and hamburger today!  I'm going to try and find some pots and pans at the thrift.

Mark and I rode the bike to Mallard Ridge tonight.  The weather is still reaching the 90's here in NC.  I am soooooo ready for some fall weather!  I sure pray it doesn't go from summer to winter over night!  I love the fall season!

Lovely clouds on the drive to Mallard Ridge tonight!

If you have been following my blog for several years, you know I used to collect Christian fiction books at the thrifts.  I put them all in the craft shed.  But, I haven't read any of them since before Tim died.  So, I decided to take them to our church's "ladies'" library so someone could benefit from them, at least!  I kept the Bible study books but I may eventually put those over there, too.  So, tomorrow I'm going to begin rearranging things in the craft shed.  I REALLY want to begin spending time out there working on projects during the day!  I'm itching to get my fingers dirty with paint!  :D

Thank You, LORD, for a good day!

I can't believe you got rid of the books! You collected them for so long! But, you're right - if you weren't going to use them, at least someone else can.

I can't wait to see what crafts are in your future!
