When we last left off, I was sharing about our incredible sailing adventure we took with WinShape Marriage July 7-14. Just a couple weeks later we headed up to the WinShape retreat center July 27-29 to be the host couple for their Courageous Hearts retreat. It was such a blessing to be there again!
The next weekend we drove up to the Cincinnati area to be with the guy who led Tim to Christ on Tim's 16th birthday many moons ago, lol. He is suffering from ALS, and when we first arrived both his head and his spirit were down. We talked and prayed with him throughout the weekend, and when we left on Monday morning he told us he felt like a new person and that he felt like something had literally fallen off of him (can you say a spirit of oppression?). While we were there we met up with a couple we had met the weekend before at the WinShape retreat who live in Cincinnati. It was definitely a divine appointment as they shared how alone they had felt in their marriage and their struggles, and through the grace of God we were able to remove some of that aloneness and provide hope. It was an amazing time together.
Mid-August saw the kids all heading off to their 4 separate colleges. Nicole and Nicholas are still living at home and commuting to college, while Nathan and Noah moved into dorms at theirs! Nathan enjoyed moving into a brand new dorm at Trinity College, while Noah is enjoying a private room (within a quad) at Polytechnic.
Well, I think that's it for the random ramblings! Hope everyone is having a nice weekend, and I wish blessings to you all until next time!
