Orange Groves

This past week we had the pleasure of spending several days with our dear friends and family in Orlando, Florida. The days were filled with fellowship, fun, and wonderful family moments and slipped past far too quickly! But for a update, here's a few shots of our annual trip to the orange grove.

Nathanael enjoyed watching these unique birds

There's nothing like eating a fresh, juicy orange on a sunny day!

And yes! Alan was able to fly down for our week, too. Certainly my personal highlight!
(More on that later...)

This trip has been a precious time together as we recognize the upcoming changes in our family. Good and happy changes but an adjustment for everyone nonetheless! New seasons bring new joys and new challenges. And a deeper gratitude for the fact that the Lord is the Faithful One who directs our paths as we trust in Him!


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not onto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths."

Prov 3:5-6
