Hello Monday!

Hello fall. Hello orange trees and many days of rain.
Hello to the crisp smell of autumn. Hello boots and sweaters, gingerbread scones and pumpkin bread.
Hello new ideas and embroidery patterns. Hello to adventure ahead!
Hello polka dots and floral (though it seems you show up every season!). Hello orange cardigans.
Hello college football!!! 
Hello to more embroidery. Cozy nights on the couch with a warm drink and a bit of stitching!
Oh, and hello to sea salt caramels, just because I love you so much.

I don't remember that day very well.  I remember coming upstairs and seeing two buildings burning on the TV screen.  And that's all.  But I do know one thing: God is in control no matter what.
A song I recently heard (All is Well by Philips, Craig, and Dean) speaks about how all is well because God has a plan.  It got me thinking "God is control, so all is well.  Because of this, no matter what the circumstance, all. is. well."  For those who have repented of their sins and turned to God, recognizing Christ as Lord and Savior.  I pray that today would be the day of salvation for many and that those who were directly hurt by 9/11 could find the comfort that can only come through salvation in Christ.
Psalm 27:1 "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread?"
Romans 8:31b "If God is for us, who is against us?"
