Hannah’s Triumph

Triumphant Hannah

Our family spent the day at Shenandoah National Park’s White Oak Canyon – the trail is beautiful, running along a series of waterfalls and the stream that connects each.  For most of the four hour hike, Hannah led our family, choosing just the right path, stepping with ease across watery rocks, climbing steps half her size – she was truly amazing.  But even more than problem-solving or endurance, we saw a settled confidence in Hannah that we’ve long hoped and dreamed for her.  The picture perfectly captures that spirit.  Thank you God for colorful autumns, quiet paths, rushing waterfalls, but mostly for the healing and redemption of our broken places!

Apple Fest – October 2010

With gratitude and wonder, we begin another gorgeous autumn in The Promised Land.  Below, a few photos from a family trip to Graves Mountain Lodge’s Annual Apple Festival.

So glad the bugs were invited, too.  Noah & Mom enjoying a grasshopper.
