Ohio

Have you ever felt so far behind that you'd never catch up?! That is exactly how it seems with blogging right now! Life is on the fast track and I have a half-dozen blog posts that are begging to be published as soon as I can get the pics uploaded and some un-interupted internet time!

We're currently parked in the picturesque Pennsylvania Amish Country, surrounded by the frest autumn smells and sights. We sing at a church service tonight and then head for a couple services in Virginia. But all that is another post in itself! For now, here's a few pictures of a special morning we spent with a dear couple from northwestern Ohio...

A hayrack ride -- the perfect treat for a glorious day!

The Ohio trademark -- the buckeye! We enjoyed a treasurehunt in the woods to discover the shiny, smooth seeds.

Success!

Mommy and the younger ones enjoyed the action, too!

And finally, they had a delightful picnic in their barn -- one of those 'dream-barns' with rope swings, big windows, and lots of unique corners and treasures! Thank you, Metzgers!


We've had a service almost every day since we left family camp and have been so blessed by each stop along the route. Getting to meet many of you and have fellowship together. And most of all, to have the opportunity to proclaim the Lord's praises. Whether it's singing as we travel in the bus down the road, at home while doing dishes, or as part of a service, I'm continually reminded of the great privilage we have in singing HIS praise! He is so worthy! Have you rejoiced in His goodness today?!

"Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, The power and the glory, The victory and the majesty; For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, And You are exalted as head over all."

1 Chron 29:11

It certainly looks like you had a great time! I love hayrack rides and swinging on those long, huge ropes in barns. It's awesome!
