Summer 2009

This has been a summer of moving for our family, Elizabeth moved to St. Louis, Jennifer and Daniel moved to Crystal City near St. Louis, and Andrew is temporarily in Kansas.
It has been a blessing having Stephen here this summer and having him work with Jim. It has been a roofing summer, and at times gruelling, but they are thankful for work.
Enjoyed meeting Stephen's friends from Rolla last night. A blessing to see that the Lord has his people everywhere.
This verse has been an encouragement to me this morning: "Come unto Me you who are weary and heavy laden (who work to exhaustion)and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me for I am gentle and humble in heart and you shall find rest for your souls... my yoke is easy and my burden is light". Sin is burdensome. The Lord Jesus is not. What rests there is in falling into His arms.
Beautiful "Ely" weather these weeks. My type of summer.
