Autumn Blessings

The fall festivities continue. We just can't get enough. We had a wonderful time at Funks Grove. It truly was beautiful. Owen watched the blacksmiths, wood carvers, and hide stretchers. He made his very own pumpkin friend at a "Pumpkin Boutique" and ran around the beautiful property for hours. It was a wonderful day as a family. Eli was smiling at everyone, like he usually does. After our time at Funks Grove Owen picked out his Halloween costume. He will be a "football guy." He is crazy for this costume. He puts it on about 3 times a day. He has to make sure his pads are on right, his helmet is in place, and then he's ready to run with his football. I think this costume was a great investment. He and Eli will be wearing it for years to come! This weekend we continue to celebrate fall at our church's 25th Harvest of Talents. My wonderful mother-in-law is coming to help me with the boys. I'm sure it will be a blessed day as well.

Enjoy the beauty of God's creation. Remember he made all of this for you...he's trying to draw you closer to Him with these blessings. I'm learning more about our wonderful God as I read "The Sacred Romance: Drawing Closer to the Heart of God." Thank you Ella May for giving this book to me. This book is teaching me to look for the little and big ways that God is trying to woo me to Himself. I see that he is filled with wild beauty and wants me to be captured by His love. My deepest desires are being transformed as I learn about this "crazy in love with me God."

Where do I begin?

I can't even begin to cover all that is going on in the Roemer family right now, so I will post just a few of my favorite pics from fun times. I will post more soon. For now, I will say that life is busy and wonderful at the same time. God is good.
