A week in which we spent lots of time together and it was wonderful.

It started with visiting my 90 year old Grandpa.

Then we headed down to Cape Girardeau.

The Mississippi River was moving quickly.

We learned about the mill and wheat.

 Had picnics.

Played football.

Caught falling leaves.

Played in parks.

Enjoyed beautiful fall colors.

Took naps.

And simply enjoyed each other.

On our way home we stopped in the town where I grew up and had a picnic with my mom and brother, sadly dad was working out of town.

cape girardeau 2014 284I stand in awe before God and am amazed at how He has taken me, poor, needy, and yes sinful as I was, and He has blessed me {is blessing me} beyond measure with the true knowledge of who He is and who His son the Lord Jesus Christ is.

“Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.”

-Isaiah 30:18
