Thank you for your continued friendship and prayers; we so appreciate them! Looking at the calendar today, we are amazed that there are only a few days left of this month! It certainly does feel like the end of October here, as we have snow in the forecast and it is "colder than Toby's leg outside" (as my mother would say).
Becky Button Nose will be five months old on Sunday!
In a week from tomorrow, we will go to the shuttle bus stop and pick up Mr. Graham and his father, who has happily volunteered to drive the moving truck for us. Then begins the end of our adventure living here in our Merry Hearts Cottage (we are wondering, what will our next cottage be called?). We have mixed feelings at leaving my mother and siblings, as well as all our neighbors, but we are excited to explore Missouri and see all that it has to offer.
Frankie looks so dapper these days!
This season of my life has been one of great growth~ not having my husband around, I have learned how much I really can do, when I thought I couldn't before! As Emily Dickinson says, "We do not know how high we are until we're called to rise, and then if we are true to form, our statures reach the skies." I even learned how to get to the pharmacy for AnnaMarie's insulin! :)
Good thing I have such big helpers!
I have found deeper peace than I thought imaginable, and have learned first hand (or rather, RE-learned) that no matter what we are called to do, if we have the right spirit, we will be supported, uplifted, and given direction every step of the way. How good is our God!
The girls decided to make one last doll village before the move~
I hope you will forgive me if I am not around Beloved Blogland much these next few weeks, but know that I will be thinking of and missing you!
May the Lord hold you in His almighty hands at this time of your life.
