What I’ve Been Doing All Week


This is what I’ve been doing every night this week– tabbing M’s law books for his exams. This is just one of his books– and those tabs are written on both sides.

As my hand was cramping up from writing such tiny letters, I wondered how much help this could actually be since there ended up being a tab on almost every single page, sometimes several tabs on one page… but he said it helps a lot. Each exam is about 3 1/2 hours of non-stop writing, and even then they don’t always have time to finish. Any kind of time saver helps a lot apparently. I’m just glad it’s not me taking the exam… I’ll be content with putting tabs on pages. (o:

He is taking his last Final Exam right now as I write this post. I can hardly believe we actually made it through this semester. With his illness in the Fall, and the school’s strict attendance policy, I wasn’t sure if we would make it through law school at all. God has been very good to us, and has answered a lot of prayer. Thank you to those who have been praying with us.

Feeling the World Turn

November SceneWe decided to do a little belated leaf-peeping today. We just have not had much time for scenic drives this semester, so most of the leaves are already turned and have fallen off the trees, but there are still a good many pretty ones out there.

We started off into the country as the sun was going down. We saw deer everywhere, and we pulled off the road several times so the girls could get a good look at them.

We pulled over one more time to get some pictures of a pasture with cows and deer both grazing. Just as we were about to drive away, we noticed a bright line gleaming over the top of some trees. We thought maybe it was the sun shining on the roof of a barn, and just as we were starting to drive away, we turned and looked again, and realized it was the moon!

Rising Moon 2

It was coming up so fast, that if you sat there and just stared at it, it seemed like you could actually feel the world turning. In a matter of five minutes or less, the moon that started as a little sliver of light, was up above the trees. It was just so perfectly round and big and bright and beautiful… it really was amazing.

Rising Moon 4

Praise ye the LORD.
Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

~Psalm 148:1-5
