October hold’s Uganda’s Independence Day! And this year was their Golden Jubilee– celebrating 50 years as a nation!! So this month our “waiting for you” pic honors Uganda’s birthday. :)
Proverbs 4 is probably one of my favorite chapters in the Bible when it comes to what we desire for each of our kiddos. You can read the whole chapter here… And this month it echoes our prayer for them:
23 Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
for our heart babies, the world will try to rob your heart of so many things; like joy and contentment… and time. oh, be careful with this one! the evil one is an expert in distraction! he will do anything to keep you from growing deeper with your heavenly father. be choosy with who and what you have surround you, for it will influence who you become and the choices you will make. and, lastly, don’t be quick to give your heart to another. your worth is in found in the Blood that was spilled for you, not in any man. drink in Him, so that your heart overflows with His love and goodness.
I was so pleased to find these childhood classics at a book fair last month at work! No children’s library is complete without these treasures:
And because October screams FALL, I thought I’d share a few of my fall favorites (around our home). For Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! I love the crisp mornings, the rich color changes in the leaves, cups of tea beside the fire, anything and everything PUMPKIN, fall decor, the pumpkin patch and all its festivities, Thanksgiving (my fave holiday), shoot we got married in the fall, oh I could just go on and on… :)
P.S. We would appreciate your prayers… we’ve been on the wait list for 6 months now (5 months since DTU), and there has been very little movement. It’s so hard not to get discouraged… we need patience and contentment during this very long season of waiting. Also, please pray for our Uga-babe(s). We don’t know the circumstances that they are in and what they are going through right now… Thank you!!
Love, H & T
