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.........
