Today (Monday) is our 30th Anniversary! Scott surprised me by making reservations for a cabin at Niobrara State Park. We've been wanting to go check it out since it is relatively close and we're considering options for our family gathering in September. We had a really wonderful time. It is a beautiful park on the border of Nebraska and South Dakota where the Niobrara River empties into the Missouri River. Because of all the rain we have had this summer, it was lush and green all the way up there. It's not a very big park and we walked some of its roads to reach special attractions like a fishing bridge and the higher lookout points. Thanks to Zeke and Psalm 29, we woke up to a thunderstorm this morning! Which was perfect, I thought. It just added to my enjoyment of the trip. Thank you, Honey, for thinking of it!
I am a wife and mother - and now a grandmother, a daughter, an aunt, a sister, my kids' "mom" (to their friends), more recently - a pastor's wife. Most of my life has been spent at home, doing what I love most - being a wife and mother. Now that our kids are grown, that looks a little different, but I love it even so. The "center" and stability for my life is Jesus Christ. He holds me together and satisfies the deepest part of me. All glory belongs to Him!
