Saturday, October 27, 2007: Fall Weather

What a strange day! This morning was so cloudy and rainy and cold and then out of nowhere this afternoon the sun just came shining brightly through the clouds! What a great display of God's power.

We had plans with our neighbors to go to Feikema's farm this evening and based on the weather this morning, I was planning on staying home with Emily. After that sun kicked in I decided to go and am so glad we could. We had tons of fun roasting hot dogs and s'mores over the fire, going on a hay ride, and getting to make our own apple cider with a hand crank mill (I think that's what they called it).

Now the kids are all sound asleep after spending time running around playing outside. I'm about to turn in as well but wanted to send out a quick update.

One prayer request I do have is for tomorrow morning. Please pray that when we talk at church, we are tuned into God wants us to say. Neither Brian or I are nervous about it which is definitely God working in us. We are not public speakers but when God decides we need to share about all He has done for us, He gives us the confidence to do it. Please also pray for those that hear us, that our words will be an encouragement to them as well.
