Dinner with "Kurb"
The kids & I have been so busy since daddy has been gone. It has surely helped the time pass a little quicker. This past Monday we were invited to be guests for a dinner at a friend's home. The kids & I were really looking forward to spending time there. We had a wonderful meal and then were invited to tour the farm. My city kids (still adjusting to country life) loved every minute. T loved all of the animals except their dog. lol. In fact, he got in the pig pen where he would have loved to stay the rest of the evening because he knew the dog was on the outside of the pen. He quickly bonded with "Kurb" (not his real name but the name T gave him). He knew Kurb would keep him safe from the dog. I loved being around this family and seeing the animals they care for each day. What a learning experience! Kurb was at work most of the time we were there. He cared for animals, then he & T picked tomatoes in the garden. I have a greater appreciation and respect for the farm families in our community and the sacrifices they make each day. As the men work from sun-up to sun-down, their wives are also busy taking care of their children and homes. What a wonderful evening we had! What a wonderful learning experience for my kids and I. T can't wait to tell daddy about Kurb, his wife and all of their animals. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
Brandon is the most wonderful husband & daddy anyone could ask for! I am so thankful that in God's sovereign plan he brought the two of us together. I am so thankful for every day with him and we joke all the time about how we can't wait to grow old together! He is my Best Friend!
My husband Brandon & I live in Protection, Kansas where he was called by God to pastor a church in July 2008. We have a wonderful family including Samantha 13 years old & loves sports, Kailey who is 7 years old & loves to cheer & dance ALL THE TIME, Trenton who is 5 years old & loves John Deere Tractors & Trevor who went to Heaven on January 4, 2010 when I was 17 weeks & 2 days pregnant. I love my family & I love my life in Kansas.
The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian makes me a different kind of woman. For I have accepted God's idea of me, and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am, and all that He wants me to be.-Elisabeth Elliot
