God's Grace

The weather has changed, the little pesty black biting bugs are back, along with the little centipedes that are in the basement!!  The weather has been out of the ordinary, with the temps rising to the mid 80's, and cooling of to the 50's in the evening. Hard to know what to put on the kids for school! Football is coming to a close.
 Bradyn will be done next week, and Benjamin's JV games are about done, but he practices with the varsity, so he will be busy!  It was so fun to see Benjamin make a interception this past week!!  Than my Monday and Tuesday nights are free until baseball. 
Benjamin is #23

Bradyn is #74
 Brody goes to the games, and of course he is blinking, waving and when we tell him touch down his arms go in the air!! Brynn is at the games too, but she is so busy playing with her little friends, she has no clue who won, or who played!
 Brody loves it when Grandpa comes to the games, he know Grandpa will walk with him!
Grandpa Kenny and Brody
The wind here in the NW part of Iowa has been crazy! The farmers are busy harvesting the corn and soybeans.  The problem is wind and any sparks will fuel a fire!  The fire departments have been busy putting fires out.  Usually during harvest you don't want rain, but we are praying for some rain and safely for the farmers!
You can see the dust flying in the air!
This week a Adoptive Family had a horrible accident on the farm.  Dillon was a firecracker, I remember him from baseball, and church! He was so blessed to be adopted to his bio father's family in grade school. Benjamin said to me, "Mom, Dillon was so lucky he was adopted, and learned about God's word!" Wow, what a great peace and comfort to know Dillon is in Jesus' arms right now.  It is quite a story, but I ask for prayers for Dillon's entire  Family. 

On another note, so excited to read this morning from Joni, 

Lots of big news already this morning! Ellen Johnson Sirleaf wins the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, and Samaritan's Purse has committed to building a new ELWA hospital!
"4 days and counting before the election. Campaigns, rallies and marches are happening all over the city by 16 different parties. My co-worker and office mate Weemor just said it best, "My prayer is that regardless of the outcome, we are able to accept it." Please pray that regardless of the election outcome, violence is silenced."

“Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”Psalm 23:6 

Have a wonderful weekend, and may God bless you all!
