Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 11 18 18


24 O Lord, how many and varied are Your works! In wisdom have You made them all; the earth is full of Your riches and Your creatures.25 Yonder is the sea, great and wide, in which are swarms of innumerable creeping things, creatures both small and great.26 There go the ships of the sea, and Leviathan (the sea monster), which You have formed to sport in it.27 These all wait and are dependent upon You, that You may give them their food in due season.28 When You give it to them, they gather it up; You open Your hand, and they are filled with good things.29 When You hide Your face, they are troubled and dismayed; when You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.30 When You send forth Your Spirit and give them breath, they are created, and You replenish the face of the ground.31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works—
Psalm 104:24-31 AMPC
Watching a Nature program about Squirrels and Chipmunks on Saturday, and this scripture seemed to fit perfectly for God's wonderful creations. I don't really think much about the squirrel and its daily habits. They're fun to watch and amazing when they bury a nut and it doesn't even seem as if the earth has been disturbed. Apparently one species (I'll never remember which is which), hides the nuts and then their brain enlarges so they can remember where they hid them after their winter hibernation, and then the brain goes back to size. Another species buries underground and even in Alaska's below temperatures, even underground where they hibernate can go below zero temperatures, but the squirrel doesn't freeze to death. It hibernates, but doesn't freeze and during the winter cycle, the squirrel shivers at times to bring his temp back up and it survives. The tree squirrel can jump the equivalent of a human jumping to buses. They evaluate the nuts that they pick up before keeping to see if has weevils, rot, etc. and if okay, they shake their head to the side as if to say this one passes. The flying squirrel and its wing span was interesting of how far they can fly once they get in the air. Anyway, it was an interesting Nature program. While watching, it was extremely awesome to think that we cannot even fathom all the wonders that God has provided to humans and to nature. 
So may the glory of the Lord endure forever, and we rejoice in His works every day even in the smallest creatures.
Happy Sunday

Pictorial Tuesday Link Up 11 12 18


Cannot believe November just started and next Thursday will be Thanksgiving. I'm ready for some delicious food and family time. All three of ours and their family will be joining hubby and I for the holiday, but because of plans, we will celebrate on the week-end instead of the actual Thanksgiving Day.. It will also be our 55th wedding anniversary, but no celebrations for that are planned. Just food and family time.

Today, I decided to do some scribbling of digital graphics instead of sharing my photography. Love putting those together. You're welcome to click on it and print if you like.

Thanks for all who stop by and share their photography, digital graphics or photos enhanced to look like artwork. You're Next:

Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 11 11 18



As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him.
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7 KJV

Sometimes, I use eSword for Bible reading as well as my hands on Bible.It's a handy tool for snipping parts to add to a digital graphic, etc. as well as reading and cross references. It is packed with various tools like journaling, study tools, etc.  eSword is a free Bible study for PC that has different Bibles you can load (some free, some not) as well as commentary from different sources.. If you want more information, you can find about it and the download HERE.


Below is a daily devotion that accompanied the scripture Colossians 2:6-7.
If we have received Christ himself in our inmost hearts, our new life will manifest its intimate acquaintance with him by a walk of faith in him. Walking implies action. Our religion is not to be confined to our closet; we must carry out into practical effect that which we believe. If a man walks in Christ, then he so acts as Christ would act; for Christ being in him, his hope, his love, his joy, his life, he is the reflex of the image of Jesus; and men say of that man, "He is like his Master; he lives like Jesus Christ." Walking signifies progress. "So walk ye in him"; proceed from grace to grace, run forward until you reach the uttermost degree of knowledge that a man can attain concerning our Beloved. Walking implies continuance. There must be a perpetual abiding in Christ. How many Christians think that in the morning and evening they ought to come into the company of Jesus, and may then give their hearts to the world all the day: but this is poor living; we should always be with him, treading in his steps and doing his will. Walking also implies habit. When we speak of a man's walk and conversation, we mean his habits, the constant tenor of his life. Now, if we sometimes enjoy Christ, and then forget him; sometimes call him ours, and anon lose our hold, that is not a habit; we do not walk in him. We must keep to him, cling to him, never let him go, but live and have our being in him. "As ye have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him"; persevere in the same way in which ye have begun, and, as at the first Christ Jesus was the trust of your faith, the source of your life, the principle of your action, and the joy of your spirit, so let him be the same till life's end; the same when you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, and enter into the joy and the rest which remain for the people of God. O Holy Spirit, enable us to obey this heavenly precept.
It's November, and we've had our first dusting of snow. Seems early, but I remember years past when we had snow as early as October. It would sometimes pile down and stay. Christmas break always brought ice skating on ponds. Lately though, the weather doesn't compliment ice skating because they do seem more mild or the ice skating would happen more in February and even March. Or perhaps, I've just aged and am not out and about to know if one goes to a pond anymore to skate rather than an inside arena. We do have those about an hour away from my town.

Soon Thanksgiving will be upon us. I'm ready for a big meal family time, and hoping the children and their families' schedules might allow them a visit.

Thank You to all our veterans on this Veterans Day.

So on to the scripture sharing. Thank you to all who stop by and leave a link. It is such a boost to my week, and hopefully to others that you visit.

Pictorial Tuesday Link Up 11 6 18


Fall has arrived and the cinnamon coloring of the leaves is everywhere. Such a pretty scene. 




Razzy loves to be outside. Lately, he'd rather be outside than inside, but right now he has his hair all cut off since he needed grooming. He is a Morkie and should be brushed every day, but this Summer, I let it get out of control. He normally has long and wavy hair. Bad timing for his haircut as he does get more chilled with the shorter hair, but it grows fast.

Morkies must be brushed every day to prevent their fine hair from knotting and matting and they must be groomed regularly. ... Yorkshire Terriers and Maltese are considered non-shedders, because they have hair instead of fur. However, all animals shed to some degree, so they cannot be called hypoallergenic.

Razzy loves to sniff every part of the yard if I let him. :) 


Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. 
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore.



My Furry Razzy...



November is moving right along, and it's time for the first Pictorial Tuesday of the month. Look forward to all the sharing links. Try to visit at least one other and say hello. Happy Fall!

Sunday Scripture Blessings 11 4 18

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road. When you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7 NIV

Welcome to first Sunday Scripture Blessings in November 2018. So far, we have had solid rain, and even snow has been mentioned. When we encounter rain for a few days, living out in the county, the drainage is not what it use to be so we are always more than thankful when the rain stops.




Hope everyone has had a good start to November. Definitely ready to read the scripture shares in my link up. Thank you. It always starts my week off in a great way.

Sunday Scripture Blessings Link Up 10 28 18







The word that came from the LORD to Jeremiah 32:36-34

I will bring them again unto this place
I will cause them to dwell safely
And they shall be my people; I will be their God
I will give them one heart, one way ~ for the good of them and their children after
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not
Behold, I will bring it health
I will cure them and reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth
I will cleanse them from all their iniquity; I will pardon all their iniquities
Again there shall be heard in this place:
The voice of Joy, the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good, for his mercy endureth forever
I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah

Pictorial Tuesday Link Up 10 22 18







Some signs of Fall in Ohio. Most of the trees around are still pretty green. Usually by November 6th, they've turned to the beautiful Fall hues of the season. We'll just have to see what the next couple of weeks bring. We've had frost so my flowers have all gone. The fields have been harvested. 

The link is below if you'd like to share your photography with Pictorial Tuesday. Thanks.

NOTE: I want to let you know that I visit all who share a link or visit and comment. I am currently having trouble when I visit leaving a comment. For some reason Google and/or Blogger is not letting my comments publish. (I realize that some have comment moderation so my comment wouldn't show until after approval, but they aren't showing up on the ones that don't moderate so that's how I know there is a problem).But I do visit each and every one. I will continue working to see why I'm having problems. Have a great week ahead.

Updated Note: I switched to Google Chrome which seems to allow me to comment on blogs as Peabea Scribbles. I don't use Chrome and am not a fan, but when visiting the link ups so I can comment, I will switch to it. :)

Thank you for sharing a scripture blessing. Link up is below.

Ilex verticillata, the winterberry, is a species of holly native to eastern North America in the United States and southeast Canada, from Newfoundland west to Ontario and Minnesota, and south to Alabama.
Below is photo that I accented with the Adobe filter Poster Edges.

I also made a graphic (below) that you're welcome to right click and save for your use:
