Welcome September

“The first flash of color always excites me as much as the first frail, courageous bloom of spring. This is, in a sense, my season–sometimes warm and, when the wind blows an alert, sometimes cold. But there is a clarity about September. On clear days, the sun seems brighter, the sky more blue, the white clouds take on marvelous shapes; the moon is a wonderful apparition, rising gold, cooling to silver; and the stars are so big.”

~ Faith Baldwin, Evening Star



I said it yesterday and I’ll repeat it today: I’ve really enjoyed the interaction around here over the past month. Thank you for contributing to the conversation. I hope you’ve taken an opportunity to check out the featured blogs; there are some great places out there in the blogosphere.

I’ve enjoyed doing the daily posts and I’ve learned that I don’t have to put together a big article in order to post. That seems to take away the pressure to have something profound to say so I’m thinking there may be more of these types of posts in the future.

Now, to the drawing!

Every comment made here in August is represented on a little slips of paper in my glass pitcher. This morning I randomly selected three names.

The winner of the copy of Two Hearts is Celine Worotniak.

The winners of the beautiful Bella Grace magazines are Karen Sanderson and Karen Clark.

I’ll be in touch with you all to get mailing addresses.

Thanks again all, and Happy September!


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I love September. It is my favourite month. The smell of harvest and apple pie and the crisper air just fuel my soul.

    1. So many treasures this month, aren’t there? Those you mention, and a return to making soup, the gorgeous colour, and a different pace. It’s wonderful!

  2. To me September is the month of rewards and gifts. The leaves start to turn here and the colors will be brilliant. And Harvest, it’s the time of year where everyone reeps the rewards of their hard work through the spring and summer seasons. The prairies will look like a patchwork quilt of warm colors. Shades of gold and green with blue lakes dotting here and there. And Thanksgiving. A time where we can take inventory of all our blessings.
    I am thrilled to have my name picked for your book Linda. I am so looking forward to diving into those pages. Thank you for doing the draw in celebration of you 8 years of blogging.

    1. It must be so beautiful where you are right now, Celine. Heard your little town mentioned on Global news last night and thought of you. ?

      1. Sorry I missed your comment before now Linda. Not sure what may have hit the news at that time. My memory is great if you ask me what happened 10 minutes ago. ?

  3. Woo hoo! Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Ooh! Maybe I’ll have chicken for dinner….

    1. Ha! You’re funny!
