What We've Been Up To Lately

Life around here has been a little complicated.

Transitioning from the lazy fun days of summer to the scheduled days of school has been a little hard for everyone.

But we're slowly accepting the fact that it's not too bad to broaden your horizons and fill your mind with interesting historical facts.
Our bodies that God has given us are pretty amazing too as we are discovering.

Our friends who lost their son tragically laid him to rest in 
Arlington Cemetery.
A huge honor for such a fine young man!!
They now are left the difficult task of emptying his home and learning how to live the new normal.

Today there is a hint of fall in the air and leaves are beginning to cover the grass.
Reminding us that autumn is near.

Drawing near to God today.

New Living Translation (NLT)

Psalm 125

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.
 1 Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion;
      they will not be defeated but will endure forever.
 2 Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem,
      so the Lord surrounds his people, both now and forever.


  1. I studied that Psalm not long ago in a Bible study. Wonderful.

    I have continued to pray for your friends. In fact, I prayed for them this morning.

    (And can I say that your son's face in his picture is so priceless. I think that one should be framed. It's like he is asking himself how in the world that little feature can make a bird fly. )

  2. I love these photos - and autumn. I'm so glad we're almost there!
