Aha! Now I think I finally found a way to upload pictures...but why do I have to do it online and not from my computer?!? Whatever.

The kiddos have been loving this gorgeous fall weather and we found this cute old truck a few weeks ago. There was a big, old "no trespassing" sign at the end of the driveway so we quickly parked and the kids ran over and we snapped some pictures. Bribed with the promise of the last ice cream of the season, of course. :) Now if I could just get them to show up larger!


I am impatient. I long for the waiting to be over...but life is about waiting. It's about learning patience and enjoying today. Not rushing on to tomorrow and wasting the time today has given me.
The main street house is still slowly creeping toward closing. Some days I feel that maybe we could just stay right here in our "own" cozy house and live life as we've known it. But then I wonder..."what would have been if..." So we're still moving into that "if" and praising God for His provision.

And today, again, I choose to offer a sacrifice of praise...thanking God for what is, and what will be.
"I will wait quietly before God, for my salvation comes from Him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will never be shaken." "I think how much you have helped me; I sing for joy in the shadow of your protecting wings. I follow close behind you; your strong right hand holds me securely."
