My, my, my . . . it has been a long time. Time has a way of becoming full and overflowing with the day to day happenings. Before you know it, the weeks slip by into months. I find it difficult to say what I have to show for my time, but it mostly has to do with cooking, food preservation, and washing lots and lots of dishes. Ashley and I have a bit of a joke between us. When one of the boys wonder what we have done all day (because it isn't apparent to their eyes~ or ours for that matter) we inform them that we sat around eating bon~bons all day.
This is actually a very special time in our family. As you may know, we have but one daughter, and she is very precious to my husband and I. We have desired that she be a keeper at home~not just after marriage when the children begin to come along, but now, for real: as a maiden seeking the Lord's will for each day, not just some future time.
Oh, we have been so glad that we set this course. I think she would echo the same sentiment. I've never know another young lady like this who has had the freedom to pursue the natural course that God intended for women and bloom into such a vibrant fulfilled lady.
But alas! A young man has come into her life! His name is Ryan, from Missouri. He and his family have endeared themselves to us in a most precious way. They have been courting for about four weeks, and how sweet it has been. You can read some of her story HERE.
Well, the Labor-Day cookout hamburgers are calling, so until next time (soon) I thank you for visiting today!
