A visit to the University

Fall has been so beautiful, filled with the beautiful colors of the season. Our oldest is off to college, the three boys are in the public school, and that leaves me with the younger four at home. It has been a good time with them. Life allows the right kind of slow down to really read together, play, work and rest. It has also been a couple of seasons (including summer) where coughs are holding on, so there have been needed times to recover. Respiratory treatments, warm drinks and chicken soup have kinda been a mainstay.

As a mother, this changing life season has caused all sorts of reflections, smiles and tears. The Holy Spirit is guiding me through while I look to lean upon the Lord for guidance and provision. He doesn't leave me to hammer out wisdom in my own thinking. If I but ask, and if I don't doubt, God's presence and wisdom becomes evident. That's been a challenge to the doubting likes of my heart.  God created me, He created my husband, He created my children, He certainly knows best. I'm learning to let go all things that I am not created to carry.

Hannah shared lunch with us in the dining area where she typically eats. Dad told her stories of life at home, and she sat back picturing the stories in her head.

I then got the official tour seeing where she takes a majority of her classes. All of us here at home think her study place looks just like a castle.  It's a lovely place to be inspired.

The windows are stained glass. Jeremy and I loved taking it all in.


The music was truly beautiful. We enjoyed it so much and look forward to listening in again.

I have many many pictures stored up in our camera. Hopefully I will be able to share more soon.


  1. Yay! You blogged! What a beautiful place for Hannah to be. God has His hand on her life, and holds your heart in His hands, too. You're a good mama.

  2. Love it! Love your tenderness to the leading of the Lord!
