Yep, I’m still alive!

I think I have finally found a few minutes to post! It’s been pretty busy here lately and I just haven’t been able to find a block of time to devote to blogging.  Right now the boys are napping and I just finished pulling out the last of the cookies from the oven…

We have had some exciting things going on around here! A few weeks ago God sent a new family to our church. A family with seven children! We have been praying for God to increase our church, and especially for children. My boys are the only children at church, except for the occasional visitors, and I had really been praying for someone for my boys to play with. Well, God answered that prayer! This family has children from 2 years old to 18 years old. And Isaac has been having the time of his life with his “friends” as he would say. And not only that, but they are homschooled, which will be a great help when we start homeshooling Isaac. And they fit right into our little church family so well. Wow, God is so good.

We have also had the wife of an inmate who was saved in our jail ministry attending the past few weeks. We have been able to help and minister to her and her children, and it’s been an encouragement to her husband in the jail who now desires to see his family come to Christ.

But of course, along with all the good excitement there always seems to be a curve ball thrown in there. We found out about two weeks ago that our landlord has put our house up for sale! We had been “planning” to rent for a couple more years until we could hopefully afford to purchase a house. So we shall see what happens with this new twist. I am so thankful that I know God has it all planned out and this is not a surprise to Him. We will just have to wait on Him to show us what comes next.

Last week my family came up for a visit. Of course my mom always takes a ton of great pictures, so I will try to share just a couple of my favorites. It was busy as it always is when they come, but a good time together and lots of fun for the boys.

It’s hard to believe the summer came and went so quickly and here we are with fall just around the corner. And then not long after that Christmas will be upon us! The time seems to go by faster and faster with each passing year.

I better get back to my preparations for Bible Study at our house tonight. I have to figure out how to fit our growing congregation into my livingroom! 🙂
