Forget Not His Benefits

The rest of this week I am dog/house sitting for my parents. The weather here in Black River is absolutely perfect (a high of 73 today) so I took the dogs for a walk on the land. With Jackson beside me I seem to notice every little detail of beauty down to the motivated woodpecker flying from tree to tree. Every time we heard it Jackson stopped in his tracks until he figured out where it was. 
Coming home, I’m always amazed by how blessed I was to grow up here and to call it home. Prayer Acres is a name my parents gave the 10 acres of land when they bought it several years ago and i think it is a fitting name. I can’t NOT recognize God’s prompting to lay my burdens at his feet when I walk through and enjoy his beauty. 
Here are some photos of Prayer Acres in beautiful fall.

“Praise the Lord Oh my Soul; all my inmost being praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord Oh my Soul and forget not all his benefits–who forgives all yours sins
and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the Eagles.” Psalm 103:1-5

John and I truly feel renewed by the benefits of our  Lord and continuously grateful. Let us not forget…

  1. such a beautiful place! Glad you got some time away there! 🙂 I've been reading from a great devotional called, Jesus Calling. You should check it out, if you haven't already. 🙂 Hope all is well for you and John!
