Some of you have very rudely referred to us as city-slickers. Just kidding, well you have, but it’s all been in good fun. But either way, I thought I’d share with you a little bit of what life is like in the city for us rural folk.
There is a slide hill just a few minutes walk from our home and the boys have loved that. Here you see the two younger ones enjoying that:
Plus, sometimes we stumble upon parks with interesting names located on interesting roads:
Plus, we thought since our boys had had to give up so much in life already (like home, school, church, friends, etc.), maybe they deserved to have a puppy.
Lenora doesn’t mind her either. Her name is Echo and she is a 10 week old Collie. Some of you may think we are nuts for getting a dog at this time, but so far, it’s even been nice for me and my rest schedule. The boys are occupied with the new puppy and I can rest even better.
In the midst of these less than pleasant time, the Lord gives us these precious moments. He carries us and plants our feet so firmly on the solid ground that is His Son, Jesus Christ.
Taste and see that the Lord is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
