Seasons of Life

I have always heard the "season of life" saying, but I didn't really understand it until recently. We will all experience different seasons of life. No matter what our season is we have one thing in common and that is that He loves us. He loves us.

I love this song by Hillsong called Desert Song. I love every word of it.

"This is my prayer in the desert,
When all that's within me feels dry,
This is my prayer in my hunger and need,
My God is the God who provides,
And this is my prayer in the fire,
In weakness, or trial, or pain,
There is a faith proved more worth than gold,
So refine me Lord through the flame,
I will bring praise,
I will bring praise,
No weapon formed against me shall remain,
I will rejoice, I will declare,
God is my victory and He is here,
This is my prayer in the battle,
When triumph is still on its way,
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ,
So firm on his promise I'll stand,
All of my life, in every season,
You are still God,
I have a reason to sing,
I have a reason to worship,
And this is my prayer in the harvest,
When favour and providence flow,
I know I'm filled to be emptied again,
The seed I receive I will sow"

I hope that we will use this blog to share a little bit about us, and our different seasons of life. I want us to be able to look back 50 years from now at the stories and pictures and smile at each and every season of life.

"All of my life, in every season,
You are still God,
I have a reason to sing,
I have a reason to worship!!!"

Goodbye Summer

I can't believe summer is over. It seems like yesterday we were celebrating Memorial Day Weekend. The house situation kept us pretty busy this summer. We made a few trips to the lake and only went to the beach once. We are still unpacking boxes from the move. Sorry I refuse to post pictures until we have finished the decorating. I am still trying to figure out paint colors, fabric, etc.

It took a few weeks for Maggie to get used to things. She did not know what to do on the hardwoods. She spent the first few weeks upstairs on the carpet. I think she is finally getting used to everything. Here's a pic of her in her favorite spot. There is an outside cat across the street, so she spends most of her day staring the cat down.

The end of summer brings our other favorite time of year. Ryan, Catherine, Josh, and I traveled to the plains for the game.

I don't think this lady minded staying home with the little guy.
