Welcome Autumn!


Hello and welcome to the farm on this beautiful, blustery autumn day!

We had the special opportunity while we were up north, to go to a fall festival!

Such special memories, walking around, looking at all of the beautiful pumpkins,squash and gourds of all different varieties...

 drinking hot apple cider, visiting with friends, riding the hayride...and watching the children ride their own little ride...

 picking apples...
 

 and best of all going through the corn maze! :-)

Last year we went through the giant corn maze, but what we didn't realize is how very challenging it would be...We wound up being in there for 2 hours or more trying to find our way out! The corn was so thick that we couldn't escape even when we wanted to!!! Poor Stephen also made the mistake of waiting until after the corn maze to go buy his pumpkin doughnuts...his stomach was growling for them which made him even more anxious and determined to find his way out...which was a very LONG journey!!! :-)

I want to share with you  Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted...
Just recently, a little over a month ago while we were gone, we received word that a dear young man, a friend of ours who was only 20 was killed in a car accident. I was devastated and heartbroken.
Here we were getting ready to welcome my precious niece into the world and then to realize that someone so young and in the prime of his life had been taken from us so suddenly.


The Lord brought this verse to me and it helped me to put things into perspective a little more...with the harvest season upon us...such a beautiful analogy...
I will let you all read for yourselves the rest of Ecc 3, but will close with verse 11a,
 ~He hath made everything beautiful in His time.

Blessings, Kelly

I love your pictures of the Fall Festival and hope I will be able to make it to that sometime! I am so sorry to hear of your friend's death. A woman that we know was recently killed in a car accident as well, and it truly makes you realize what a gift each and every day is!

The fall festival looks like it was a lot of fun!

What you shared is such a reminder to be thankful for each day, and be grateful for and use the opportunities we have while the Lord has us here. Thank you for sharing.

Blessings,
~Dani, Amanda, and Emily

P.S. Any chance you are coming to the western side of the state while you are here? :) We'd love to see you!

Oops! I meant the east side! :)
