Is it too late to post pictures of the pumpkin patch?

Hope not :o)

This time last year, I unable to go with Hillary Ashton's class when they visited the pumpkin patch. A week before the field trip, I received a very grim prognosis from my doctor. I prayed to God to heal me.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace,
that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

I prayed for a miracle and a miracle is what I received :o)


Praise the Lord! Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
Psalms 106:1

I am so thankful to be alive AND healthy this year. Health - a blessing I will never again take for granted. Needless to say, I was soooooo thankful be able to visit the pumpkin patch this year :o)

They made it to the finish line...yep, that was the whole obstacle course! But, they do look cute :o) That's Hill's bff, AC. They are super silly little girls. They have been best buds since they were little babies in the nursery. I love that :o)

I love this bridge.

It reminds me of the red bridge at the Hoan Kiem Lake in Hanoi, Vietnam

Hillary Ashton has changed! I LOVE that bridge myself. Such good memories.
I love the story of God healing you. I don't know the whole story, but you are right, you are alive and healthy.
What a Gift from God for all of us to be healthy.
Love the recent updates/pics.
We finished our DHS training and are now waiting to be staffed/placed with a kiddo. So exciting : ) Hope things go well with little guy coming into your home.
You are such a neat woman. If we are ever close I would love to have lunch and pick your brain. You look like such a wonderful mom and have a precious heart for the Lord.
Have a great week,
Natasha
