A New Season

      The leaves are changing, my children are growing, and my heart is healing. My munchkins and I took off yesterday to drive 45 minutes the other way down the dirt road and end up in a quaint mountain town to eat pizza. (It makes us feel like we have neighbors.) The drive is beautiful, especially this time of year. 

      The aspen leaves are glowing and I am reminded to thank the Lord for this new season of life. Isn't it amazing that our Creator ordered beginnings and endings? The end of Lucy's life was a little over a month ago, but this ending brought so many fresh beginnings. I have been given a new season at the ranch, as a wife, as a mom, as Becca's homeschool teacher, and now as a blogger.  

    This autumn watching the leaves change, I welcome change. Life changed forever last month when we lost our baby girl and I will always be changed. This does mark for me a new season of gratitude, hope, deep down joy, and peace. I pray this daily for our family. And I pray with anticipation knowing that our Lord gives abundantly. So, this year I have never been so grateful to see the yellows, oranges, and reds of fall...such a sweet reminder.

I'm signing off for now, but this new season also will mean more blogs to come! It's good to be back!

Brooke- Just reading your response to life right now inspired a deeper gratitude in me for those same things you talked about. Truly He makes ALL things new. I am encouraged by your heart. (and I think I've been to that pizza place you mentioned-was it in Lake George?) We are going to have to come out there one fall & marvel at the aspens with you. :)
