Fall......

Hey, there!
So, how are you enjoying this fall weather? I am staying busy with sitting two of my neighbor's animals! This is the first month ever, that every single weekend is full for me! And I love it!
The first weekend of this month, found me and my family in Glen Rose, Tx singing, (which is a few hours away from home) the second weekend, I was busy sitting some animals down the street, then this weekend the same thing except for a different neighbor, and next weekend, I'll be doing the same animals for the same neighbor! The last weekend is my favorite one! Our family will be hosting a four-day Shindig!!!! I so can't wait! A week after that my sister will be having her second wedding! (She's already married)

God has blessed me oh, so much! It has been an exiting journey to witness the love story of my sister unfold and bloom so beautifully. How she's become a wife and lover of one man. The way she's held her heart for this very man. Every part of their story is so beautiful and you can truly see God shining brightly through them both! I really can't wait to see all what God has planned for them both! They are planning to go to Africa as missionaries which is so exiting and thrilling all in it's self!
God is so good to me all the time! This weather is soo beautiful! He has blessed me with dear friends, a loving family, awesome brother in-laws, handsome brothers, jobs, a house to live in! Everywhere I look, a blessing I behold!
The roses even came out to bid me a good morning as well as the clear blue sky and bright shining sun! These are also part of the blessings I get to cherish. :)


The wispy clouds of fall and winter are already here!







The cat's are so cool to capture! (Although they move A LOT!! :))


Although fall is here, the flowers don't seem to mind !
Hot tea. Ahhhh. My favorite part of cold weather!


My God is awesome! I love how He shows off His beauty!
I LOVE fall! I wonder what life would be like if God didn't create seasons? It would probably be really boring!!! But since that is not the case, I will thank Him for His goodness to us in making the seasons! Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!!
Until next time, May God Bless you as He has me,
His forever Girl and Servant,
Abigail J.

Change: When I least expected it and its effects.

A lot has happened. Life is what it's called. Three weeks have passed since one of my sisters lived here. Being the only daughter and girl at home is strange. I don't have a sister to chat with anymore but I do have two brother in-laws and dreams of future nieces and nephews. :) I have a huge future a head of me. I have dreams upon dreams that I want to accomplish and see get finished this coming year. My whole life until now, I would wonder in my mind: "I wonder who so in so is going to marry?" Us kids would always have that conversation around our table after a breakfast or dinner. But there is one thing that we never thought about while we pondered and laughed over our futures. As we giggled over what our nieces and nephews would call us, as we mentioned names we wanted to name our kids, we never thought about the life that would take place after we left the nest. What life would be like when just Josh and I would be the only ones here. Us kids always said "Yea, when Josh and Abi are the only ones here with Mom and Dad, they'll have the whole 3000 sq ft all to themselves!" And then we'd all laugh.
I'm not grieving-although I do want to, although I miss every single day that our whole family was at home, I still love every single one of my siblings, and miss each and every one of my sisters. But one thing I'm looking forward to is the HUGE Christmas parties in the future!!! 
I've come up a bunch of notches in our family responsibilities. I've got a lot more chores and responsibilities than I ever did before and I consider that a joy. I am so excited about life! Even about chores! Before every thing changed, I would get up and think to myself : "Same old thing everyday! I gotta do the dishes, gotta do my school, do this and do that!" I was not happy about anything. That's why I had a hard time with being joyful. Well, now, I have something different to do everyday! I have a whole different life now! My dreams are easier to reach now! (I don't know why, but they are!:-)) I have a whole different look on life and my days, I anticipate. The Lord has seen fit to fit all of this in, so perfectly. His plan, it just keeps getting better. The big puzzle of life fits so beautifully together! Life happens and with it comes God's grace. It's a joy to serve Him and see what next, He has up his sleeve! ;-) 
Until next time, His girl, awaiting His next mission and lesson,
Abigail
