I can't get Abigail's nose out of a book. She taught herself to read when she was 3 and has been addicted ever since.

I have been chomping at the bit to go pumpkin hunting with the kiddos here in New England. I mean, seriously, this place is the very definition of "Autumn". It goes unsaid that we feel blessed to live here and experience this beautiful season together. So, yesterday afternoon we finally got the chance to take the kids to a local farm. Jane & Paul's Farm was perfect. The air was crisp, the sun setting behind rows of corn and trees on fire with color stopped me in my tracks. We had the whole pumpkin patch to ourselves. The crusty New Englander, with his heavy accent and deep set wrinkles, gave us our wagon, a potato sack, and told us we would find the pumpkins growing just pass the "cahn" (corn). Good thing I made the kids wear boots...the mud and puddles made us feel right at home! Needless to say, the afternoon was everything you dream of when you are blessed with three kids. Who doesn't start planning out costumes and dreaming of pumpkin patch photos from the day these little ones are born? It's kind of one of the "rights of passage" as parents. (Not that it always goes so smoothly...right!?)

Everyone has their fair share of ups and downs. It's a dangerous game to compare...lives, marriages, children, bodies, houses, grocery lists, bank accounts, pain, illness, and so on. When we play that game we will only lose and will be left with a life full of condemnation & guilt.
I was just thinking....
I've been so self absorbed,
Prison wasn't exactly what saints like Paul, & Peter had in mind when they decided to put faith in God.
A stable and a cross most likely confused the heck out of Mary.
I'm sure that Abraham was full of question when he didn't have an heir, and then when he finally did, was asked to sacrifice him.
Building an ark for almost 100 years before any rain takes some serious faith too.
God's plans come wrapped in layers...it takes faith, fear, hope, and endurance to uncover the mystery.
So, I guess this speaks to my heart today.
I don't understand the "why's". Neither did all of these regular people.
They just walked by faith.
From our marriage, to our kids, our home, and our church....together we are walking by faith.
That is all He asks of us.
We can do this...hand in hand. We are united in this simple truth and that is all we need to make it...and glorify His name.
