So as I am sitting here and my computer has successfully been running for more than 10 min. (Yippeee!) I'm wondering if I should post on what all we have been up to this summer or just start from here and go forward. We have had an exciting summer and now we are already smack dab in the middle of fall. I love this time of year with the cooler weather, fall colors, football and soup :) and can't forget the sweaters and mittens. So as we look forward to the good things the Lord has in store, here is just a quick glance back over the warmer days of summer.
Home Missions Project
Week of Giggles
After that week was up we had two special ladies (preacher's kids :) who stayed with us for another week. We loved having Amber and Delaney with us and our house was filled with lots of laughter.
Later this summer we had BJ and Andrea Williamson in to visit and minister at the church. They are OMS missionaries to Ecuador and are here in the states for a few months to riase support so they can back to Ecuador. It was lots of fun to have them and their two adorable children with us for a few days.
Isaac James Withrow was dedicated to the Lord on August .....Our family came in for the special occassion with Annette's dad helping during the dedication ceremony. Both of Aaron's grandma's came from Pennsylvania with his parents and it was great having them here for a few days. It was a special time remembering that Isaac is not ours but the Lord's child and we have been entrusted with his care and teaching him the ways of the Lord.
As you can tell we have had lots of visitors this summer and loved every one of them! We counted and we had people staying with us almost 6 full weeks this summer. So this was just a quick look back to see what all has gone on this summer. It has been a very busy one but we are thankful to the Lord for his graciousness and our growth through it.
