Miss Scott’s Reminder

Did you do something special to celebrate the last day of Summer yesterday? Today is the Autumn Equinox, when both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres will receive the same hours of daylight.

I spent yesterday in the garden, and started to prepare it for the time of winter rest. I thanked God for the beautiful flowers that He had allowed to bloom there this summer. I admit that I was feeling a little sad at the end of the growing season, and I thought I would take a picture of the last Summer sunset of the year.

To my surprise, our ‘pet’ seagull, Miss Scott, was sitting on the rocks, looking at me ! She first arrived in our garden in 2017, stayed all summer, and then flew away, returning again for the summer of 2018 and 2019. She has enjoyed many tasty treats in the garden ; her favourite was sardines in an ice cream cone.

Miss Scott will be leaving the garden for a warmer place shortly, and as I watched her intently focusing on me, my spirits lifted, as I realized that we are in the days of the harvest.

As the songwriter wrote , these are indeed the Days of Elijah. Let us thank God for the privilege of being labourers in his great spiritual harvest.

I thanked Miss Scott for her reminder, and I now look forward, with great anticipation, to the blessings of the Autumn season.

  1. LOL, I LOVE “Days of Elijah”!
    Yesterday there was a reunion of the people who had been involved in our Halloween outreach (“Satan’s Worst Nightmare”), and at one point I got out my guitar and we sang what had become our theme song over the years – “…and we are the laborers in Your vineyard, declaring the Word of the Lord!” 🙂

  2. Lovely. Unfortunately yesterday I had a bad headache and was not feeling at all well, so after I got home from church and had lunch, I headed for the couch and didn’t do much else all day. I did watch a movie, “Miracles from Heaven”. Gladly I’m feeling much better today. We are having beautiful weather today, but haven’t had a chance to go outside. That’s the problem with living in an apartment building. You don’t just go outside for a few minutes into the garden, because a garden doesn’t exist here. But I’m enjoying a wonderful breeze coming through my windows.

    1. Glad that you went to church. Always a beautiful experience. I have been wanting to watch that movie too. God sends so many miracles, both large and small. May He give us the grace to recognize them when they occur. 🤗
