MOJO315 & TSTR188 ~ Fall ~

Happy Saturday to you!  If your home is anything like mine we are busy cleaning our yard, finishing final repairs around the house and generally getting everything "ready" for this winter.  I hesitate to even mention the word, as I am not always a fan!  I love looking at snow from my window but when you work for a utility and have to be at work at 7AM AND bad weather makes your job even more crucial...  you get the drift...  NO PUN INTENDED!  :-)
As I mentioned earlier in the week, I feel that the Lord has laid it on my heart to share more "thoughts" or random ideas that come to me during my Bible studies and such.  If you are here to peruse my daily card, I do have one for you a bit further along.  If you aren't too busy though, I would like to share a little insight from my week.
Last weekend, hubs and I were planning a get together with the kids.  With the addition of a new DIL and grandson, our brood has gotten bigger.  And unfortunately, it seems difficult most days to get everyone together.  We had a bonfire earlier this year and everyone seemed to enjoy it.  So we decided to have another one this week.  Being the planner that I am, I pulled out my phone to check my weather App.  I was disturbed to find that the weather forecast called for "snow" the day we had tentatively planned.  Hubs checked his phone and insisted that the weather on his App said nothing about snow, much to my chagrin.  I was convinced that he obviously didn't look in the right place and our event was threatened.  Later in the morning, after stewing on this development for a bit, I checked the weather again and much to my amusement I realized my App was set for Baraga, Michigan, decidedly further north of our Kentucky home...  So I had to admit to my husband that I was miffed for nothing and that my own lack of attention led to the great "weather debate."  So the lesson here?  If you don't have the correct coordinates, everything gets skewed!  I had my phone App set to our favorite travel destination 14 hours north and as such the information I had was useless. 
As Christians, if we don't have our coordinates set, reading our Bible, studying God's word and maintaining fellowship with a body of believers we can lose course.  You have to stay plugged in with the right information to be successful!  Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a wonderful day!
And on to today's card using the MOJO Monday sketch...
