September re-cap

Psalm 91:3-6
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.

Faithfulness.

The theme of our September.  Despite the many snares, arrows, and darkness that Satan threw our way, God remained faithful as our Protector, Comforter, and Guide.

There were certainly low points:

adjusting to having no alternates, just as the house filled up to capacity with 7 residents

dealing with hospitalizations with one of our residents

a resident running away from campus

mourning the sudden death of my cousin Michael

But the Lord is faithful, and promises not to give us more than we can bear.  Between the valleys there were highpoints.  Moments that refreshed, to help sustain us through those dark spots.

Labor Day in Illinois with our great friends Eric and Carrie and crew

Enjoying the local Grabill Country Fair - along with some pie...

Trip to the zoo with Hannah and Madeline

Hannah starting preschool!

Beautiful fall weather - campfires and hiking and S'mores!

Birthday celebrations with the Suvar's

Paul and I both running our personal best in the Fort 4 Fitness races (he the half-marathon, me the 10K)

Enjoying the moments when we can have a quiet morning of coloring and play-doh



And now September is behind and October is before us.  October will most certainly have some surprises, but we can lean on our Lord's faithfulness...and that means

no

matter

what.
