Family Times

Thank you for your prayers for Nathan and Melanie this week. Your comments have been a blessing to them, and the Lord has indeed ministered His grace.

This week has been sobering, with Nathan and Melanie losing their little one. We helped quite a bit with Abby and normal household duties–which aren’t duties with sweet Abby around 🙂 ….

A “praise the Lord” was the trailer sold. A man from Des Moines, Iowa drove down Wednesday evening. About a half hour before he was to come, I was asked about the title to the trailer. My mind whirled, and I realized I didn’t know where the title was! Thus began a 15 minute search, with everyone pitching in. I had saved it somewhere “safe” (I guess), and Anna was the hero in finding it. I am so grateful to the Lord that the title was found!

We’re continuing to add stops to our January/February trip. We are keeping the map and schedule updated with each new stop.

I know a comment was left under Nathan’s last blog post that a family had lost their baby last Sunday, at 13 weeks along. We want to let you know how sorry we are for your loss. I’ve also been touched by reading how many of you have gone through miscarriages. I remember when Nathan and Melanie lost Susannah, another family had also lost their little girl, Spring. We also know there are others out there who have never been able to have a child of their own.

Resting in our Savior,

We took a family walk last Sunday night, and fall was definitely in the air and on the ground.

  2. What a blessing that your trailer sold! And thanks for sharing those pictures – – little Abby is so cute! 🙂 I am continuing to keep Melanie in my prayers, and hoping she feels stronger each day. I know the Lord will see her through this difficult time. Blessings from Georgia, Patti M.
    P.S. If I lived closer to you all, I’d bring over a meal to help out….

  3. We are continuing to keep Melaine and Nathan in our prayers. praying for God’s healing touch.

    Thanking God your trailer sold and you found the title. We just went through this with the our BMW–searching for the title, so the new owner could take it home. God is good in reminding us.

    Abby is adorable. Simply adorable.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari

  4. What a sweet post. I know that your famiy is hurting and I am so glad you all have each other. When I had a miscarriage, no one seemed to want to talk to me about it and that was painful as well. I know that you will be loving to each other, especially to Melanie and Nathan and Grandma and Grandpa. Give each other a sweet hug. Love, Beth

  5. Oh how I miss living far enough East to experience the fall! Abby is so cute and growing up so fast!!! 🙂
