1000 gifts: A month of thanks

 All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside?
 Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who thro' life has been my guide?
Heavenly peace, divinest comfort, here by faith in Him to dwell!
For I know whate'er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.

All the way my Savior leads me; cheers each winding path I tread, 
Gives me grace for ev'ry trial, feeds me with the living bread;
Tho' my weary steps may falter, and my soul athirst may be, 
Gushing from the Rock before me, Lo! a spring of joy I see.
 Fanny Crosby

556. a clear message 

557.  obedience

563.  a visit from my sweet sister... a plan to paint falling through to spend time just enjoying each other

564.  a fall trip to our favorite garden

565.  an afternoon nap for a Daddy and new son

So big already... can't wait to hold him, to hug him, to smell his sweet, sweet baby skin!

Missing you tons-- so glad R. was able to come & visit and recharge with you :) So glad you were able to *rest* even as paint cans called your name... they can call a little while longer, for sure!

Hope you have a super week... give the boys a squeeze for me!
