Bass Harbor Light Station

Years ago I became fascinated with lighthouses and began to collect different things with lighthouses. There are over seventy lighthouses in Maine, and this year I visited Bass Harbor Light Station.

The lighthouse is along a cliff in Acadia National Park. It was built in 1858 and still stands today. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 21, 1988. The lighthouse belongs to the U.S. Coast Guard.

Bass Harbor is the only light house on Mount Desert Island and is automated. While visiting Maine, we heard locals pronounce Desert like desert and like dessert. Either way, I love the name.

In my opinion, Bass Harbor Light Station is a national treasure. I didn't get to go inside the lighthouse, but I found the area to be inspirational. I'd like to share a few pictures today.

Third Day - Your Words

We are coming up on some of the busiest days of the year. It's ironic that the season of Thanksgiving and Christmas, when we should be focused on Jesus, we're caught up in the world's business. Today I'd like to share this song by Third Day with you.

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm thankful for you my dear friends and family.

Grateful Heart

Because this is November, I want to share some scriptures on being grateful.

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!” (2 Corinthians 9:15).

“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds” (Psalms 9:1).

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6).

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Colossians 3:17).

“Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!” (Romans 7:25).

Psalm 95:1-6 – O Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, And a great King above all gods, In whose hand are the depths of the earth; The peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it; And His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.

November, a Time to be Thankful

Do you remember your blessings in November, or do you start scrambling to prepare for Christmas?

I know we're already a week into the month, but I'd like to share something to encourage you to be thankful.

I'm thankful for you, my friends. For the rest of the year, I'm going to scale back my blog posts. I appreciate your prayers as we try to sell our home and move to South Carolina. Bless you!

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever” (1 Chronicles 16:34).

Earthly Home

2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

Some have asked Tim and I how we can sell our beautiful home. We've been blessed with good homes during our marriage, but I've never felt tied down to any one of our homes. I will always have wonderful memories our our current home that won't disappear just because I move.

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

My time on earth is short, and heaven is my real home. So if you should wonder how I can leave my earthly home, my answer will be this is only my temporary home.
