it's actually dark when i want to put the three littles to bed,
and i love the feeling that autumn is upon us,
even if we don't get a change of color or leaves falling.
at least i get to bake with pumpkin.
pumpkin cake, a family favorite,
pumpkin chocolate chip muffins...
and then i remember my oven is broken and
has been for three weeks and
i have no hope of getting a new one any time soon...
barbeque and slow cooker have been
best friends to us lately.
i gave moses our last banana this morning and realized
i need to buy more although
i just bought a bunch yesterday,
and then it dawned on me that in a home of 8 (almost 9),
you go through a lot of bananas and
have to buy them daily.
most things we go through quickly i try to make or grow,
don't think i can do that.
i cried a lot yesterday (as some of you know) and
went to bed feeling defeated.
today i am awake knowing this is a new day,
His mercies are fresh every morning,
despite the lack of autumn conditions,
even when you have no oven,
and when you have to buy bananas daily.
that is all and
He is good.
