Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!
Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

A Gift You Give Your Neighbors
My husband and I did a little landscaping today, but I am still not caught up with all my weeding. However, I do have to say that I feel the reward for my hard work extends beyond myself and my family. I do believe that the neighbors appreciate, even if subconsciously, the upkeep of my property. A property not kept up can actually decrease the value of the homes in the neighborhood, especially when right next door. I remember someone in my old neighborhood who had trouble selling their home because the house next door was so unkept.
So the next time you grumble about your weeding, as I often do, or mowing, or planting/pruning, whatever it may be, remember that it is a gift you give to all those around you, whether living close by or driving by. It makes us all feel good when you take pride in your home. So thank you!
