More summer catch-up. Last month we took a whirlwind trip while we had our house sprayed for bugs. Insects and spiders of all kinds (including dangerous ones) have been really bad in our area, so it was nice to get that done.
Our first stop was at a Minor League game. Kyle was beyond excited to be taking the family!
I think he's been dreaming of this since he was old enough to want children. :-)
I was pleasantly surprised by how well things went, how kid friendly the park was, and how many other families were there with little ones! We watched the game for a while, then tried out the in-park playground.
Between the game and all the people, the kids had plenty to look at! We enjoyed our evening together and, all in all, I'm glad we did it.
We ended our very late night with popcorn in bed. Now that's a special treat!
. . . not all that long ago, there was a little girl. This little girl loved Jesus, and talked to him about a lot of things, including what she wanted in a husband. She knew what she wanted, so she was quite specific. This little girl grew up into a lovely young woman. She studied, worked hard, and gave generously, and she waited for the Lord to fulfill the desires of her heart.
On the other side of the ocean, there was a man. He was intelligent, diligent and adventurous. What he wanted most in the world was a very special and godly woman to walk by his side. His path took many turns and surprising twists until it led him to . . . her! And they both found exactly what they wanted - in each other.
My brother Andrew has asked the beautiful Miss Fiona to be his bride!
And she said: "Yes!"
I am SO excited to be getting a new sister! I can't wait until she gets here to the states and we get to talk in person! We are rejoicing in the goodness of our God, who delights to fulfill the desires of our hearts. :-)
