A new years resolution in Sept…..not that I believe in them.

11 Sep

It has been months since I have posted on here, accepting that the resolution I made to write weekly, never came to pass. With that said, I am now committing to write in here monthly. Maybe I can keep to that, so let’s see how it goes…. It is worse that I thought, taking a peek at my last post, it was in January, failed mission I would say!  Well here goes….

Our new grand baby, August, has added so much to our lives with joy and excitement. He turns one year old on October 4th, so the Mickey Mouse party is in full planning with plenty of pictures to follow! Summer was a whirlwind with going to South Africa for three weeks, celebrating with my sister Ann as she turned 70 this year. It was great to see and spend time with family and friends over there. Michael was able to join us as he led a leadership conference in Francistown, Botswana and visited Jerry and Jana Lackey with the Love Botswana Outreach Mission. Sarah had the opportunity of going with us and we enjoyed the visit and travels of Africa together. Now with Sarah in her last year at Concordia University here in Austin, we are kind of empty nesters. It is an adjustment as we really miss having our kids living with us but we really can’t complain as none of them are more than 15 minutes or so from our doorstep!

Family!

September is a really busy month for us at the church with tons of fun things happening plus we are participating in exploreGod.com which is an outreach ministry going on here in the city. God is moving in people’s lives at TOLC and it is exciting to see what God is doing and waiting in anticipation to see what He has planned for us all!  Plus football season has begun so let’s watch some Cowboys!

Today being 9/11, let us never forget the brave heroes who gave their lives trying to say other….I will never forget. Praying today for those who lost their loved ones 12 years ago and praying for the healing and restoration of our Nation.

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave,and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
