a fall evening and a giveaway winner

happy monday to you. welcome back. the week. to the common days.

this past saturday found us at a good friend's house. jason and i got to do a little benefit concert for them. along with a few other very talented friends, we played under the stars. it was awesome.

the home we were at was seriously idyllic. so beautiful. 2 bonfires and people we love. apple cider, pumpkin bread, s'mores, and apple crisp. starlight, sweaters and music. i'm telling you-- a beautiful night.

but what made it all so very wonderful was the reason we gathered. the family who hosted us recently took two teenage boys into their home who needed a place. needed a home. needed... more. and this couple (already with a toddler and preschooler) saw the hole, and knew He could fill it. they have relied on the strength of His Spirit and provision. and last we gathered together to rejoice in what our God has done and will do. it was wonderful.
