It’s wonderful to be settled into the cabin. We did some shopping today in Denver and then made our way up into the mountains this afternoon. And yes, Nathan and Christopher’s families came, along with GiGi!
I look forward to sharing our adventures during our time here. We each have so much to be grateful for. Praise the Lord for the simple gift of another day!
Joyfully His, Sarah
“Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” Psalms 100:3
Life is crazy busy here as we prepare to leave for Colorado. It’ll be a special time away as a family–time to just be together, enjoy God’s creation, and be refreshed. I can’t wait to smell that wonderful mountain air, to gaze at the star-laden sky with no street-lights to obstruct it, and to hike and hike!
One more day of preparations–of almost tripping over things as one navigates around a house that is in trip mode, of trying to remember all the things you must do, of packing, of loading, and of excitement.
Serving Jesus, Sarah
“For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” Romans 1:20
Just a peek into something we’ll be doing one evening this week. I plan to capture the moments with my camera. A hint though: this doesn’t just have to do with balloons. It’s for a much more significant purpose. I’ll share after the event.
“Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Psalms 37:5
It’s a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and we’re enjoying another reprieve from the summer heat. When the humidity is 15%–well–that’s just amazing for Kansas. And not only am I grateful for a gorgeous day, Sundays are a special day of worship, extra family time, and rest. How much we have to be thankful for!
Last Sunday, Christopher and Anna Marie did a newborn photo session with Drew (I was enroute home so I wasn’t able to help). I thought you’d enjoy seeing pictures. He’s such a cute little guy! Thank you for your prayers for him. He’s doing well.
“And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.” Deuteronomy 6:7
Very unexpectedly, Melanie’s water broke early this morning. Now she’s at the hospital with no labor. Yes, you read that right! Please pray for Baby Boy and Melanie. Baby is 33.6 weeks, and he’s doing fine, but obviously this is fairly early. So we wait and pray.
Sarah for the rest
“For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.” Psalms 139:13
We celebrated both Mother’s and Father’s Day today, June 14th. Due to unusual circumstances, we ended up not being able to properly celebrate on Mother’s Day nor Father’s Day, tomorrow.
We (Sarah, Joseph, John, Anna, Jesse, and Mary) voted to take Dad and Mom out to a restaurant this afternoon. Kansas City is known for its great barbecue, and Jack Stack is probably its best. We had a delightful time enjoying each other’s fellowship.
After we got home, everyone tackled projects, and we rounded out the day with Bible time (and talking!), dessert, and gifts.
We love you, Dad and Mom!
