Happy Thanksgiving!!!


I've been meditating on this beautiful hymn this Thanksgiving season:


"Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?" Job 2:10

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Rom. 8:28

"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." Phil. 1:6

Thank You, Father, for your love, for sanctification and for redemption!!!

September

These pictures are old, but better late than never!

Katherine

Her hair is finally long enough to put up!

Hugh and Katherine's cousin, Ella came over to play.

Anna and Steven moved back from Maryland this fall.  It is so fun to watch the cousins together!

Eva and Sarah



Hudson and Eva

Enjoying funny videos of each other

We had some friends over for a cookout on Labor Day.





First day of school for these two

Eva playing "school" with a class of matchbox cars.  She even made school books for them.

We babysat some friends one weekend.


Enoch quickly made friends with Eva.

Playing restaurant
Enoch takes the orders...

...and Audri mixes the food.

He's charming!

The Lewis Edition: The rest of August and September

I got to go spend a day with this sweetie and her Mama!

Mommy and baby

"Roly-poly pudding"!

Deb wanted my help with a project.
Practice ...

All finished!

She's awake!!!

SO sweet the way she looks up at you! 💖

The view from Deborah and Daniel's porch. Caitlyn and I enjoyed
being outdoors in the warm sunshine while Mommy got some rest.

And she's asleep again!


So much preciousness in that little face!!!

Russell's 5th graders the day they got their instruments.
There was a lot of excitement. :)

Learning to hold the instrument

Rest position

Another project ...

... finished!

A bench for our balcony! 
Thanks for the birthday money, Daddy and Mama!
We've enjoyed it so much already!
(In fact, I am here right now, working on this blog post! ;))

Pretty flowers, a reminder of the Word of God
that lives and abides forever!

These colors made me smile!

Multi-tasking at its best: my husband doing his warm-ups
while watching a (muted) football game! 😂

First concert of the season!!!
"The Music of James Bond" with the Marshall Symphony Orchestra.
This is an annual outdoor tent concert which the community looks forward to
and enjoys with great enthusiasm!


It's fall, y'all!!! :)

I've been volunteering at Buckner one day a week,
assisting the staff in the foster care department with filing,
proof-reading and putting together binders and packets.
It's a lot of fun!

Russell had a weekend off, and we decided to go see Caitlyn!
(Err, I mean, Caitlyn and her parents! ;))

We enjoyed getting together with some dear friends at
Deborah and Daniel's house Saturday night.

L to R: Esther and Corrie, Leigh and Zachary, Caitlyn and me!

We camped at our usual campsite :) on Lavon Lake.
Glorious sunset!!!

We thought this hammock/tent was pretty neat!

Fall sky!

That's all for now!

"O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good;
for his mercy endureth forever." Psalm
