The last part of the summer (before school started)

There's been a lot going on since we left summer project! I've been putting off blogging because it is a little overwhelming to remember and hash through the last two months. There have been some really encouraging things (like our Cru conference in Colorado).

My sweet friend, Elizabeth! So thankful for her and our great time at the conference! 

At the last minute, my parents said they could keep the kids! A whole week kid free:) 

But there have also been reminders of our need for Christ and a call for trusting Him even when sometimes it feels like we're walking through darkness. Isn't it true that most of the time you don't see what God is doing in the midst of pain?

And yet in the midst of it, there are so many blessings and reminders of how He loves us!

Henry got to ride on his first four wheeler 

Got to love a little girl in pig tails:) 

I so desire for my faith to increase as my need to control (prayerfully) decreases.

"Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God." Isaiah 50:10
