Sunshiny Autumn, Happy Hawk !

I was working outside and noticed my constant companion, our Vizsla , Hawk, was not following me. Very unusual, he seems to be attached to me at the knee when I am outside.I looked for him and found him just standing...
..and soaking up the heat of the afternoon Autumn sunshine. Here is a dog dear to my heart that knows when to stop and soak in the blessings that come our way, sometimes for only a few scarce minutes.Thank-you God for allowing me the privilege of enjoying animals who know to stop and take in the everyday blessings I so often hurry by, only to remember days or years past, if at all.

"The happiest heart that ever beat 
was in some quiet breast
That found the common daylight sweet,
And left Heaven to the rest."

You are so right: we have to learn to stop and soak in the blessings that come our way, sometimes for only a few scarce minutes!!! :o)

Don't you love the companionship of a beloved pet when you are outdoors working? Kaboodle always accompanied me around the yard at Nalley Valley. Wishing you a nice Autumn weekend.

Quite handsome!

It is so peaceful over here at Cedar Pond. I scrolled down and checked out the happy chickens too.

Hope that you have a wonderful weekend, Kathy.

Dear Kathy - Such a delightful morning to check in with you and spend some time at your beloved Cedar Pond. What images of the simple down to earth life I am green that you enjoy so abundantly! I have my one day a week - today - to snuggle into a corner chair with such reflections on this rainy fall day in South Jersey. Your chickens and sheep and all that wonderful fresh spun fiber stored up for winter - I will wax poetic about such things if I don't stop now!

Thanks for your sweets words about that grand of mine - you have a farm full and so wonderful that you can pass on the treasures of faith and the love of God in Creation.

Joy to you!
