fall on our farm......










It seems the trees turned overnight. It is so beautiful. It is so like it was when Joel was here in that Oct. 0f 06. Makes me miss him even more.

Today started out a bit interesting. I had plans of going over to the place where we got the beds, but I did not make it there. About 45 min. south the "good ole van" decided it did not want to go any longer!! I lost power at a speed of 65 and coasted over to the side of the interstate. Called Terry and our mechanics wife soon came to pick me up and transported me back to his shop and then the "Great Mav and Mavette" came and carried the "old woman who not only has sooooo many children and am blessed but now has a broken down van!!!" Oh, well, could be worse. I 'll take a sick van over a sick child any day!!

Just to look at these pictures tells me I do not have to worry about vans. He can create and make all the trees turn colors, he can surely take care of a van. I enjoy the Fall, but my best season is Spring, especially now. It speaks of life and hope.

A big weekend ahead. Terry's folks are coming in as well as his sister, husband and two children for a BD party for Terry's mom. She will be 7o and we are having a party for her. I was suppose to go grocery shopping tomorrow and get alll that squared away before they get here but we'll have to figure out another plan. Something will work out, surely!

I have been reading in the book of Joshua. I am finding myself a little down in remembering Joel and these months ahead. I am trying to meditate upon what God has done and know that He will do for the future, for our children and their futures.I must keep drinking of the fountain, even though I feel dry, the fountain never runs dry!

Enjoy the pictures.........

I have been a quiet follower but I just have to say that those pictures are BEAUTIFUL!! Took my breath away. I live in Edmond, Ok and I found your blog from a comment that you left on Jessica Kate's blog (she is a friend of my sisters). I'm amazed at what a small world it is and my heart aches for your loss. I've enjoyed reading about your big family and all the "adventures" they have.

Thanks Cindy, for stopping by my blog. I came back to *visit* with you a bit. I love the pics. My computer acts up so much that yesterday I could only see about 3-4 pics but today I can see them all. HOW BEAUTIFUL. Wow... :)

You know with the time of year thing... I do that a lot with my Dad. I know it isn't the same... and he lived a long life... but when the time of year comes around it brings back a flood of memories. So many different things do. Like when I went to visit my sister (she lives in my parents home) and I went into the garage where my dad tinklered around and listened to his blue grass music. I could *smell* him. It was bittersweet. I do not want that to go away... some may think that is morbid or something but I need that.

Also, fall is a great time of year but not my favorite either... spring is mine. Something about fall brings some sorrow ... maybe the ending of a year or something.

I do enjoy the fall/winter baking, celebrating....

Today has been a tough one for me... so I appreciate you commenting and praying.

My time with Mandi was great. Wesley cried for over 15 mins when we left her... and Mandi cried too. Her heart is here. She has been reading over at
www.joyfullyhome.blogspot.com I know the Lord is working.

Hugs....

Cindy ~ Absolutely beautiful! Why can't the trees always look like this?

Thank you for living out the Truth and standing on His Word. You always point to Jesus even in your pain.

I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. John 14:6

Oh Cindy, I'm so glad that I came by here tonight. First, because those pictures are just so beautiful! Just want I've been missing so much! I always get a bit homesick during most every season other than summer. It's always so hot here and dry and well, while the people are so beautiful the land is so barren.
And also, what a good thought you leave us. Even when we feel dry and empty, He is the Living Water! His Word is what sustains us!
While I don't get on here much now days, I do think of you EVERY day and pray for you...I've been praying especially for you these past couple of weeks just thinking of how these months ahead must bring back so many memories of your sweet Joel. May the Lord bless you, comfort you, and quench your thirsty soul as you drink from Him.
love,
Jaynee

Hats off to the photographer-the picture look like beautiful pieces of handpainted artwork. Nothing more beautiful than God's artwork and how blessed we are that He gave us so much beauty in His outdoors. Hope all is well with your family and I still enjoy keeping up with all of you through the blog. Thanks for sharing
