I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

A lot has happened since the last time I blogged. This though, is one of the biggest things that has happened:

Our oldest and his beautiful wife had their first child Aug. 16. He is perfect! Being grandparents has definitely been life changing, for the best of course.

With the joy that came from the birth of our first grandson, came the sadness of the loss of one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met. She passed away suddenly and unexpectedly while I was in Canada meeting my new little grandson. We were able to make it back home in time for her funeral. She was the perfect example of a Titus 2 woman. She had an uncanny way of making every person she met feel like they were her best friend. I definitely was one of those people. I loved her dearly, and will miss her greatly. But I find great comfort in the fact that I will see her again.

     Titus 2:3-5
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

It's been awhile, so here's a sort of update on the year so far:

Still in my forties

 Still Me
 Still Homeschooling
 Still leaning on Him
 Still "The Taylors"
and Still missing our "Big" boys

Christmas Boxes

Here's a great idea for Christmas! Not only will you be a blessing to all those children and their families, you are also being a blessing to this wonderful missionary family. You and your family can not only have a part in making a child's Christmas happier, you will have a part in giving them the Gospel. That's the best part of all!

We went camping last week up in the Sierras. It was the greatest way to end our summer, especially since our #2 son was home for about 2 weeks from WCBC. 

Now onto school and fall and all the wonderfulness that goes with that! :-)
