Wow! It's been awhile.............................

It seems f@cebook has become my favorite form of communication but my sister has yet to set hers up!!! Summer is almost over, the boys return to school in less than 2 weeks and Mariah, Lord willing, will start about a week later. We've had an eventful summer. These last couple of weeks, we've had gorgeous weather with little humidity! We've actually been able to use our fire pit in the back yard because it has cooled off at night. The kids love roasting marshmallows.

The highlight of our summer was going to Camp Canaan. Dewayne and I went again as team captains. We had junior boys and girls. I was privileged to get to do the devotion in the junior girls cabin one night. Our theme this year was "Fight the Good Fight" and we used a medieval night so our devotions had a princess theme. My devotion was on a princess' attitude. The first point was 1) A princess must be willing to weep for others (show compassion) 2) A princess must be willing to work for the King (tell others about Jesus, serve him in church, etc 3) A princess must be willing to welcome others (show herself friendly because she represents the king.) It was a lot of fun to do. It was Hayden's first year as a camper and he had a ball. Of course Mariah, the social butterfly, had a great time.

The "not so highlight" of the summer was D getting laid off from work. He's been off about 5 weeks, but God has provided for us. He is, however, about to go stir crazy but it looks like something might come about next week. We'll see. I've been doing some catering with some ladies at church which has brought in some much needed income. Well, I better go. Love you all!

:) Sounds like you all have been having a great time. Isn't it awesome (and a bit stressful) watching God take care of you?! I know you have been there before but it never gets old!! How fun to be catering! Right up your alley. :)

I miss you guys but am so happy that I can keep up with FB.

Have a wonderful week! I love you.

Wow, sounds like you've had a very busy summer and fun too!

Sorry to hear about your husband's job. Aren't we lucky to know that God isn't surprised!

Happy Fall!
