Creek Splashing

Cody's first "swimming" experience was Tuesday! Trixie and I took the kids to Belleview Park, and enjoyed the playground before heading down to Dry Creek to do some splashing and sand play. Fin, Sel, and Andrew all had a good time digging around, pouring things, and making "soup" or "cake" in their sand toys. Trixie and I lounged on the picnic blanket with Cody in the shade to keep cool. IT WAS 85+ degrees out. Phew. Although the water was rather chilly, the air was so warm, and it was shallow... it really wasn't bad. It felt good for a cool down, and I wouldn't complain.
Cody enjoyed the water, like he would a bath, but he didn't seem to want to sit in it very long. I don't know what bugged him: the sand and rocks in his toes, or the cold water rushing around his bottom? He was too cute, though, in his little trunks and swim shirt (thanks Target and cousin Fox)!

There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
