This summer has been full! Many days spent in airports around the globe, talking to Delta Airlines, arranging meals for 15 people at our house and well over 50 on the field daily, games of Settlers of Catan, late night talks pouring into interns, Bible studies, worship services, orphaned children, and on and on. There were many days when I just didn't think I could take another step. Yet, God gave us sweet rest and rejuvenated our souls for another day. Praise Him for His goodness and faithfulness.

We took a week to head to Destin to regroup and rejuvenate as a family. What a joy and blessing it was! We spent our days getting up late (when you're used to 5:00 am, 8:00 is a miracle!), reading books, playing in the pool, eating great seafood, and playing in the sand at the beach. Not to mention many games of Settlers and Bananagrams.... What a blessing to have that much-needed time together.

Now, we are back home and everyone is in the groove of the new school year. Everyone has new chore assignments, schedules for school, and the blessing of a new schoolroom. We are excited about what this year has in store for us. We are all eagerly awaiting news on our adoption from Uganda. The wait is long and arduous, but we know that God is in total control!!!

We give Him all the glory for His goodness and His Sovereignty! To Him be all the honor!
