When things are not what you expect

 Kitty got what he didn't expect. Usually he has his nose up against the glass. My honey was kind enough to rverse the storm door screen from top to bottom so Kitty No-No can look out and smell all the wonder and temptation carried on an autumn breeze. The other day when my son called with news of his melanoma cancer, I was heartsick, praying in the living room. Kitty perked up but didn't make a sound. I peeked out and saw our entire front yard covered with sparrows.

That was a reminder, and hopefully a sign, that reinforces what the Bible teaches: His eye is on the sparrow,  and I know He watches me (and my son).

Surgery scheduled for Thursday, 10/20. Would so appreciate prayers and good thoughts.

 Kitty was not too thrilled with sharing his space with the little scarecrow and fall flowers. He kept one eye on the display. He likes to sit on the table when we sit on the patio. We all enjoy the great outdoors. Yes, he sits there and does not jump down. His nose twitches with every shift in the breeze.

 Liam went to the pumpkin patch with his parents and grandparents last weekend where he lifted and carried real pumpkins. So when he saw our display, he ran right for the pumpkin, expecting it to be heavy. As he picked up the jack-o-lantern, you can see his confusion. He said, "Hey, Nana!" As if I would trick him. It just wasn't what he expected.

Our little scarecrow and his friends. BOO!

Liam is such a little cutie pie. I pray that all will be well with your son's surgery. A worrying time, I'm sure

Sending positive thoughts your way for your son's surgery and recovery.

Liam is in for a lot of surprises, I think, during the upcoming holiday season.

What a cutie, two cuties! Best wishes to you and your son and his recovery.

There are breakthroughs and good news lately about melanoma, so you should be totally optimistic about your son's surgery and prognosis.
May God help your son, and family easily overcome this difficult period!

Hello Linda. Love seeing photos of Liam. He sure is growing! I am saddened to hear about your son's health challenge but prayer can move mountains. Will join others in prayer, asking for a clean bill of health after the surgery. Susan
