October 2019

Country life has taken a very busy turn for us. The first three weeks of October are filled to the brim. It was good to have a nice hour walk with a friend on Wednesday along the trails by the Dominion Meadows Golf Course here in Colville.

Our cousin Jim is here right now and we connected with another cousin in Colville who we’ll have dinner with on Friday while Jim is here. I hope we remember to take some photos. Jim plans to move along in his travels leaving here on Monday.

Our Connection Groups at FBC start up this Sunday for 6 weeks.

Our Third annual family hunting get together is coming up and our “Coast Kids” start arriving on the 11th.

A wedding has been added to our calendar on the 12th of October and we’ll travel to Spirit Lake in Idaho with our kids, Andrew and Katie, for that event.

Dear and I are heading to the Truth Matters Conference in Southern California on the 15th.

After the 19th of October we do have some free days until the 30th of October if anyone feels inclined to have a casual visit. You know who I’m talking to. No more snow in the forecast. But things are subject to change.

My computer time is going to be slim these weeks so if you don’t see me around you will understand why.

Some Spurgeon to close this post…

Always remember this. In common life the wisest thing is the right, straight, undeviating course. The right thing is always the wisest. Sometimes it looks as if it really is necessary to go off the straight line and just take a shortcut. It seems so, but it never is. The take of the shortcut is a book of lamentations from beginning to end. But you need not be a philosopher to discover how you should act under any circumstances. The way to act in every case is to fear God and keep His commandments. Straight Ahead!

Here we go…straight ahead into October and beyond!
