The Long Summer

As promised, I thought I would share a little bit from this past summer.This summer was marked by:
  • Three foot surgeries for my mom (and many trips to her home about an hour north of here to help my dad with her care and with meals). 
  • The flooding of the basement due to a water softener malfunction (followed by reconstruction of the basement, which was done remarkably quickly).
  • Greg working away from home most of the summer (including during the basement flood--which affected his office--and the reconstruction project). 
  • My sister-in-law's almost two-week stay in the hospital due to what is normally considered a routine surgery (gallbladder). 
What I learned about God this summer: 
  • He is sovereign and nothing escapes His notice.
  • All things will ultimately be used for His glory. 
  • He uses trials to bring you closer to Him and to those around you. 
  • Sometimes God answers prayers through trials. 
  • God has given me a wonderful husband, and I miss him very much when he is gone.  
  • God has given me a great love for my family.

Cookie Baking Night 09/17/12

Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Emily. We made classic chocolate chip cookies. Since it was just Emily tonight, we took a little Cookie Baking field trip, and she ran some errands with me. We came back and read lesson 76 from Leading Little Ones to God  by Marian Schoolland. Emily read Matthew 6:25-33 from the Bible.

It was a small crowd tonight, but as usual, a fun time was had by all.
