It seems like I post about once a month, so here is my August post!

More traveling went on again this month.  I was able to enjoy some more Texas beauty and I hope you enjoy these pictures:

Can you see the double rainbow?  The vivid one was a full rainbow that stretched over the road.  It looked as if you were driving through a tunnel.  It was beautiful!

West Texas sky.

Palo Duro Canyon, near Amarillo, Texas

More Palo Duro Canyon

Even more Palo Duro Canyon

This canyon was amazing.  You are driving along what looks like flat land for miles, when all the sudden you are driving down into this canyon.  It was beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice.  Who knew that Texas was so diverse in their landscape? This canyon is supposed to be the second largest in the United States, behind the Grand Canyon.  I can't wait to go back when I can spend more time there.

 My mom's new quilt book came out this month!  I got my copy in the mail and it is a wonderful book.  My mom is so talented, I love her!  If you want to check it out you can see it on her website, http://www.thefarmerswifequilt.com.  The reason why I am even mentioning it is because of the dedication that she wrote in the book.  The dedication brought me to tears, even with knowing beforehand what it was going to say.  I am still amazed how many lives Jared touched and although my family only met him a few times, how much they loved him.

My mom is right, we rejoice that we will see Jared again, in heaven, our final home.  I can't wait for heaven when I get to see my Savior!!

Although I can't wait, I am enjoying my life now, here on earth.  My job is going well, we are extremely busy, but that's ok.  Midland is booming economically and with that brings lots of new jobs.  People are moving here from all over the country for those jobs. For us at church, that means more kids on Sundays!  For the past two Sundays we have had over 1,000 kids attend.  It is overwhelming to know that God has entrusted us to minister to this many kids.  It is exciting, yet daunting sometimes. 

Everything else is going well, but I can't believe how fast this year has gone.  God has really been working in my life and although it is hard sometimes, I am extremely blessed.  I wouldn't trade my life for anything!

Until next month......
