Upcoming Long Weekend [for me]

For I am the Lord, I change not; -Malachi 3:6a

I haven't posted to this blog in some days because I have been so very busy. In my last post, I mentioned that my boss had died after a lengthy battle with a cancer of the blood. We are all dealing with the sadness and aftermath of that experience. I do have a hope, however, that he left this world for a better place with Jesus. He may have made that decision as his life concluded.

The situation at work continues to be rough (as I know it will be for some time to come) as we struggle to pick up the pieces and put everything back together again. As we all know [who have been on this planet for some time] nothing remains the same. Things in this world are constantly changing. In that regard, I am reminded of how grateful I am for the One who never changes.

Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. -James 1:17 (NASB)

I am leaving here shortly for a long weekend away enjoying the fall color of the Berkshire mountains in Massachusetts with my wife, brother and sister-in-law. In fact, we will be spending a couple of nights with them. That will be different-- and I am looking forward to a couple of days away and a change of scenery. One of the things I will miss is going to the church we have been attending with our new found family of believers that go there. We are impressed with the warm, welcoming attitude which we have experienced there. However, we will attend my brother's church in Southwick and the folks there seem to be really nice. I am pleased that he has found something he is comfortable with where the Lord and His Word are honored.

This is supposed to be one of the nicest foliage seasons in a few years. Hopefully, I will get lots of decent pictures and will post a couple of them here.

Has anyone noticed that I have completely avoiding commenting on the recent Democratic debate (or the previous Republican events)? All I can say is I try to keep the fact that God is in charge in the front of my mind! Keep praying for America!
