Hi, all! I know my extended absence doesn't really surprise you, my faithful friends, but I feel I should explain nonetheless. . . This past week, my family and I took our annual trip up to the mountains for our camping vacation. It was such a nice, relaxing time there, and absolutely beautiful! as usual. :] I took about 300 photos! Haha, maybe a new record for me, I dunno. But I do hope to share them sometime this week. Also, I have another book review coming!
Life, in general, is good. My family and I are coping well, what with my grandfather recovering wonderfully from his pancreatic surgery and my aunt and cousins keeping busy and starting a new school year. Still, we could all use your prayers as some days are more difficult than others. Thank you, from the depths of our hearts, in remembering my family this summer! God is good in sending His children to care and love others.
You may be idly wondering how my relationship with Evan is progressing. . . Well, the 21st of this month marked five months of our dateship. We've only grown closer and he is without doubt my best friend.
What is to come in the days and months ahead? Who knows the timing of God, except God Himself?
Again, we greatly appreciate your prayers! We are trying diligently to seek God first, in wisdom, strength, and discernment. Thank you, dearies!!
And, seeing as it's Monday, I thought I'd throw in a couple names for you. . . Enjoy!
