God showed us some lovely color this evening as we walked the trails in our backyard! It seemed to be a promise to me that our school year will go well, even if our days are busy and sometimes long. I am reminded to not be weary in well-doing (Galatians 6:9).

Wow, it sure feels like autumn outside today! We enjoyed some time in our backyard, savoring the mild weather while it lasts. The chickens are happy and producing excellent eggs! We're so thankful for our country home, lots of space for the kids to explore, and all of the blessings in our life!!
Last Saturday, we offered a free car wash for all Northfield residents! We wanted to show them love in a practical, tangible way. We even wore "We Love Northfield" t-shirts! Our hope was, that by offering a needed service for free, we could open up conversations about Christ. We wanted people to know that we care not only about their physical needs, but their spiritual ones as well!
We had a great time with Jerry Dale Crafton while he was here! He was amazing at heading up some much-needed home maintenance projects such as installing a ventilation fan in the upstairs bathroom, sanding & re-finishing our deck, insulating a furnace duct leading to our bedroom, adding gutters & downspouts, and many other little jobs that make a big difference to our quality of life out here! We're so thankful for him!! It wasn't all work, though...we had fun playing games, enjoying Basil's pizza, goofing around at Cabela's, visiting the Pirate Festival in Owatonna, and getting the "best ice cream ever" at Russell Stover's!
