What a beautiful day it is here in central Indiana! The skies are blue and the temperature is crisp but lovely! We still have some leaves on the trees and the woods behind our home is still decked out in the glory that God gave it! It is beautiful even with bare trees, though. It is equally pretty in the winter with snow and in the spring with the happy little soft green leaves opening up. The farmers all around us are harvesting their corn and soybeans. I honestly think that farmland, dotted with trees, is the most beautiful land there is. At least, I would really miss it if I had to live somewhere else! I am such a country lady!!

We are almost done with all the important documents that we need to send to China for our adoption. We have applied for immigration and we are waiting for that approval. We certainly could use your prayers for her adoption!!!!

I have a lot of pumpkins to cook and either can or freeze. I really need to find the time to get that accomplished. I love doing all that fun little homemaking stuff!!

I also almost have our Christmas shopping done! (I know....I'm crazy....) I can't wait to put up our tree and decorations. I also love Thanksgiving...I just really like getting a head start on enjoying the season we remember Christ's birth!

I've been going to a ladies Bible study at our church. We aren't actually studying the BIBLE....we are reading a book called "Thirty One Days to a Happy Husband." It is a pretty good book and it does make me think a lot about the relationship I have with my dear husband, Roger. It is always nice to check on those kind of things....just to make sure we doing ok!  (I think we are....)

Since I drive about two hours a day getting to and from work, I've been listening to the Bible on cd. It is really nice to have that on as I drive. However, one of the readers has some really irritating ways to pronounce words. I know it's silly but it is about to drive me crazy. She keeps saying "ONTO" instead of unto!  They also mispronounce sepulchre. I'm sure those of you in the eastern part of the United States would think I speak with a midwest twang......but...............!!!!! But on the other hand, I do feel as though it is helping my walk by listening to the Word for two hours a day....regardless of how words are pronounced.....ahem......

Well, have a lovely day! Israel and his math lesson beckons!

What's Been Going On???

Wow....it has been a LONG LONG time since I have blogged! There's been a lot going on...mostly good....that has kept me away from my little blog!

I had a nasty car accident in March. I was going home from my son's house and a deer hit the side of the car...actually coming in the window where I was. I was banged up and cut up but no one really thought it was terribly serious. Israel was safe and sound in the back seat. God really protected him. He protected me, too....but I did have some issues come up in trying to recover. I started getting headaches and being nauseous. I couldn't teach Israel or read or even use the computer. My memory was pretty foggy as well. But after about 2 months, I was good!

Our adoption of our little girl in China is still underway! That accident put us behind in getting all our paperwork done but hopefully, China will still allow us to have her. She is now about 7. I just can't wait. We are waiting for some letters (referrals) to get to us and our immigration papers to come through then we can send everything to China! WOOHOO!!!!

I have a part time job now working for a before and after school care agency....so that is where a lot of my time is spent! Speaking of, I have to get to work right now! Fortunately, Israel is able to come with me and has a lot of fun socializing with kiddos. (He is also learning about some things I don't really like but I guess that comes with growing up!) He is soooo tall! I'll have to post some pictures soon!!

Blessings to you all....I hope to be able to catch up with you and also visit your blogs!!
