Daddy's soon return.

A dear new friend shared a verse with me right after Zane left,

"Resist him {the devil}, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kind of sufferings are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.  And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen and establish you."
1 Peter 5:9-10

Only the Holy Spirit could have known and led her to share this with me.

The past month, with daddy away, has certainly had its fare share of suffering, both physically and spiritually.

To say that I am anticipating Zane's Saturday night return is an understatement.

Not so much for the relief from the extra "duties" I have had to take on during his absence, but more so because of how amazing our marriage has become and the closeness we share!

Zane said that his time in the states was wonderful, but he too is ready to be back.

Please pray for safe flights, clearance of all his extra luggage {and provisions} and a safe journey back up to Northern Uganda--an 8 hour drive.

These are just a few of the things that happened when daddy was gone...

The papaya and peanuts are nearly ready for harvest.

Trips to the farm.

A package from a friend arrives in the mail--experiencing pixi sticks for the 1st time!

One of our mama goats had a baby {although it was killed by wild dogs a day after this photo was taken.
