The Last Flowers of Fall

Well, we picked the last flowers in our yard while we were harvesting the rest of our garden's vegetables and fruit. It was bittersweet for us, because we loved our summer. But the first snowfall is coming tomorrow and the harvesting of flower and food had to be done now or never...

I thank any and all of you who offered prayers in behalf of our family this week. My husband and I have mostly stayed happy and positive, while re-thinking our lives. Currently, we are contemplating a complete change...Mark would like to leave sales of any kind. He is tired of the stress associated with those types of jobs, especially in a worsened economy. He is considering becoming a teacher. His degree in Sports Science/Exercise Physiology, as well as his experience as a national classed athlete, qualifies him to coach track & field at some nearby school. I think he would be very good at that. The pay would be small, but we could supplement it several different ways that we are still discussing.

We can still use prayers and we are deeply grateful for them.
God bless,
