is in full swing around here. I love this time of year...all the pretty colors and the cooler weather does my heart good!
It's hard to believe our first nine weeks of school are almost over...time seems to be flying by!
I just snapped this picture outside my front door this evening. We don't have a lot of color here yet, but it's coming. :-)
Things here have been quite busy lately. We've had some very serious issues to deal with in and around the church and school. My husband has had quite a time of it. Pastoring can be very stressful, and lately it has been stressful on a whole new level. But, God has helped us through so many things, and we are praying that very soon we'll be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Yesterday was Pastor Appreciation Day at our church. We had a potluck dinner after the service, and some of the kids put on a cheer for us. It was all very sweet. One of the families put this card together and we thought it was so cute...very creative. :-)
I happened across this blog not very long ago. As I looked through the posts, it just touched my heart...these poor Ukrainian orphans all but forgotten. Thankfully, some folks have taken an interest in these children and are helping to provide basic necessities for them.
Oh, my sweet friends, as I looked through this blog, I was reminded that we in America have so much!
I'm sure they would appreciate any donation you could give. There is a donate tab at the top of their blog. What a genuine care and concern they have for these precious ones!
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. - James 1:27
I hope you all are doing well...thanks for stopping by! :-)
