God is Able
God is able
to bring us home
under His wing
to bow before
His glorious throne
where all His children
will dance and sing.
Wendy ❀ 2014
To him who is able to keep you
and to present you
before his glorious presence
and with great joy –
This will be a short and simple post
since I’ve been busy racing to finish line of NaNoWriMo.
❀ ~ I did it! ~ ❀
(Huge sigh of relief)
Thank you for all of your encouragement.
Special thanks also to my husband,
and Jennifer (writing buddy)
who helped make it fun.
Now I can spend oodles of time raking up leaves
and dreaming about how I’m going to turn my first draft
into a finished book.
Thanksgiving Blessings ~ Wendy ❀
What special project have you been working on?

Wonderful images Wendy. The fragility of life.
Thank you, Don. Each day is a gift. ❀
I anticipate with great excitement being able to bow before His glorious throne. Thank you for this excellent post. I am extremely curious about photo six. Was this inverted? The plant (obviously a Northwest species) reminds me of how a miniature lichen (Cladonia chlorophaea? – Pixie Cups) grows here in Michigan.
I wish you the best as you develop, revise, and grow your first draft. ~ Richard
Thank you, Richard. ❀ My husband also asked me if it was inverted. The Euphorbia had bent over on itself after a heavy rainfall. They caught my eye, as they looked like aliens. I don’t know its full botanical name. But one of its common names is Irish Bells. It’s invasive. So it’s in a bed of its own.
Congratulations on reaching your goal. And thank you once more for the beauty, timeliness, and simplicity of your posts.
Thank you, Michael. My next goal is to gather leaves for the compost pile. ❀
I am so happy for you! This has got to be so rewarding and exciting. I love the poem. It is filled with comfort and promise, and goes nicely with the photos. You have such an inspiring blog.
Thank you, dear Theresa. I love the feeling of having pushed past obstacles to the finish line. I can’t even imagine what it will be like to finish the race of life and meet our Maker face to face. I’m so grateful for His love and grace. ❀ Blessings on your holiday.
Congratulations on doing the NaNoWriMo–I’m thrilled for you (and so impressed, as I’ve never been up for the challenge). Lovely affirming post, as always–God bless you!
Thank you, dear poet friend. I kept remembering that it’s just a first draft and to allow my muse to have its way with the words. “You can’t edit a blank page” was a mantra I borrowed from somewhere to keep me going when I thought my writing stunk. All first drafts stink. ❀
Oh that is brilliant advice–I’ll tuck that in my writer’s pocket, thanks!!
Congratulations!!! 🙂 I know that feeling of accomplishment is just so cool, and the photos that accompanied your post are inspiring. Wishing you a lovely weekend my friend.
Much love. 🙂
Thank you, Seyi. I could get hooked on the elation of finishing a first draft. It’s similar to giving birth. ❀
God is able to… such reassuring lines Wendy! Glad that you’ve achieved the poetry writing for November. Have a lovely weekend… 🙂 Love, Iris
Thank you, dear Iris. Blessings on your holiday weekend. ❀
Yay Wendy! Its a good feeling and one I will never forget, especially when things get tough with writing. You can look back and say….I did Nano I can surely do more. Good luck with shaping that draft into something special.
Yes, we did it, Wendy! And Kath, not to hijack this post or anything, but I must thank you for the advice you gave me and the inspiration you gave us both. I’m so proud I took it on and we didn’t give up. Will blog about it in the coming days or next week. Thanks to both of you again. <3
Yay! glad to help xx
Yay us! xo It sure helped to have someone to share the joys and trials of NaNoWriMo with. I look forward to your post, Jennifer. Blessings on your weekend. Hugs. ❀ (I sprinted across the finish line once I figured out who was the culprit in my novel.)
Thank you, Kath. I learned some valuable things about meeting a writing deadline. It definitely boosted my confidence in that regard. And I love it when my muse takes over and surprises me with plot twists I didn’t see coming.❀
A BIG! NaNoWriMo congratulations.
Thank you, Steve. We never know what we can do until we try. ❀ Thanksgiving blessings to you and yours.
Words and photo’s so fantastic beautiful
Thank you so much, Marylou. ❀
Congratulations on finishing the first draft and with two days left over. I hope you are very successful with it when it’s all said and done. Hugs, N <3
Thank you, dear Natalie. It was wonderful to be out raking leaves knowing I’d given my main characters the happy ending they wanted. ❀ Hugs.
What beautiful shots and words, dear Wendy! Good for you to persevere through the process and stick with it!!!! So glad to hear that you are one step closer to your goal 🙂 Blessings as you continue on your journey, friend!
Thank you, dear Heidi. You’ve shown us, by your example of faith in action, that God is able to help us continue and complete the work He has planned for us to do. Blessings on your “expanded” family. ❀
Congratulations – goals met are so satisfying. Our leaves are all down around here, and we rake some for the compost and mulch the rest for the lawn. But we have snow on the ground again. More like winters years ago.
Thank you. ❀ It sounds like global warming has skipped your neck-of-the-woods. We have frost and sunshine here today, and I’ve already got a blister from raking. 😉 So worth it.
So so happy with you for getting it done! Yay Jesus! And what a beautiful post and photos to go along with the good news! Thank you, Wendy and God bless!
Thank you, sweet Debbie. I love the respite of reading your blog posts.Your most recent one is especially touching. Jesus, alone, is my true joy giver, and He is more than enough. ❀
Thanks for another
beautiful post, have fun with the book too.
Thank you, Keith. I really did have fun with the characters. ❀ I admire the hope you sow on your blog and how you point to the true Source of it.
I am just loving these leaves, Wendy!! I have to say I do have a favorite… (5th pic) a single autumn brown leaf on top of green. (How true of fate ~to take chance and be pleasantly surprised.)
Congratulations on finishing the NaNoWriMo and enjoy raking up those wonderful, beautiful, inspiring leaves, my friend! Blessings ~Zoey
Thank you, dear Zoey. I love what you said, “How true of fate – to take a chance and be pleasantly surprised.” ❀ Blessings on your week.
Just checking in to see what you’ve been doing with your blog lately and I’m stunned! You have been hard at work in many ways. Congratulations on meeting your goal, Wendy! I am so excited for you…REALLY excited for you. Blessings, Dee
Thank you, dear Dee. My daughter’s home-school teacher was amazed at her naturally creative writing skills (as I have been for years), and I’m hoping that one day we’ll both be published. ❀
Well done Wendy! And these photos are beautiful.
My project is my new poetry book which should be available shortly. Just waiting forcsome formalities which are holding up the process but you will all know about it when it’s ready!
Christine, I’ll be sure to have a box of tissue handy when I read your new poetry book.❀ Your writing digs deep. Love it!
You’ve done it, Wendy. Finished another novel. Congratulations and thank you for uplifting us with another beautiful blog post. How I love all those autumn leaves.
Thank you, dear Mary. Congratulations on your new book. ❀
A very poignant and beautiful post, dear Wendy.
Thanks for sharing. Sending you all my best wishes!. Aquileana 😀
Thank you, dear Aquileana. ❀
THANK YOU FOR BEAUTY POURING FORTH FROM A BEAUTIFUL SOUL. THAT GOD IS ABLE TO TAKE US ALL THE WAY TO OUR HEAVENLY HOME IS THE CHRISTIAN’S COMFORT; SIMPLE? FOR HIM, NOTHING IS TOO HARD! CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ACHIEVEMENT!
Thank you, Nin. God is beautiful. And, yes, for him all things are simple. May we rest in this. ❀
AHHHHHH, superb close-ups of leaves 🙂 Wanda
Thank you, dear Wanda. I love the autumn pictures you posted today. ❀
Wow…did you ever capture God’s beauty in the fall!
Thank you, dear Laurie. I love those adorable shots of your grandson. ❀
