Feeling Something Fall

Well here in my part of the world we are in full-blown autumn. The oaks and maple trees are so pretty and peaking. Reds. oranges and golds everywhere. It's been raining a ton and the grasses are very vibrant shades of green! Love it. I have to admit this is my favorite time of year! Of, course having a September birthday might have something to do with that as well. hee hee.

Things are on track. My apartment drains backed up three times in the last week of September. YUCK! The last time we had the new beautiful carpet already down and presto. more drainage. Ewww. I live in an apartment and there is mildew under the baseboards, looks like from previous problems :( ...I'm sure it will be resolved.

In the mean time... I have this month's We Believe Blog Train freebie for you. Here are all of your stops... Don't miss out on any! Remember, we are a global group and may post at different times on Oct. 15th.

This month is Alpha and Omega
Scripture: Revelation 1:8 (KJV)

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Sad to See Summer Go!

Here in the states the leaves started turning this year at the end of August almost two weeks early due to cooler weather. We really did not see many warm days this summer either but it was mild and great!  I'm loving it! 

So...with a fall(ish) flavor let me introduce this month's contribution to the We Believe Blog Train and the great ladies at Let Me Be A Blessing forum. I'm a bit partial to it as I was the one to choose the color palette and theme/ scripture. Yay!


From (NASB) version of the Bible the scripture for September this year is 

.Psalm 85:12

Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, And our land will yield its produce.

Psalm 107:37

And sow fields and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest.


September... is ... Fruitful Harvest.

By the way, I see my medical specialist consultant next week and will be starting a preventative chemo medication something that is a sister related type medication to Tamoxifen for some pre-cancer, a-tipia, that they found this January in a routine mammogram. So many blessings to be grateful for.  :)  They caught it early.

So as you are sending up prayers please also remember the hurricane survivors from Harvey and Irma here in the States and the Caribbean Islands. It's so sad, all of the destruction and displaced families. 

And I am celebrating my birthday this Sat. Sept. 16th! Woohoo!

Here are your freebies, enjoy!

The next one...

Here is my second month of contributing to the I Believe Blog train. My Christian and spiritual friends have wonderful gift freebies for you this month. This month is "BRIDE." But first, a special request :|

Part of this group is it's spirituality. I'm asking a favor this month. I need your positive thoughts and prayers sent up.

In January I went for my annual doctors appointments and screenings. Well peeps, I failed my mammogram screenings this time. 

This week I was diagnosed with a form of pre-cancer called ADH and ALH. I have atypical hyperplasia. I have both types, ductal and lobule. One they do surgery, one they treat with medications, Since I have both, it's leaning toward surgery.

I'll let you all know a bit more next month. as I have an MRI scheduled next. Surgery is scheduled for March 23rd, in case it's needed. Anyway... don't miss any of the stops...

Here is my portion of Bride.
