The mums loved the summer heat wave in Michigan this year.
These beauties are for sale everywhere in many glorious colors. This giant was all of $4 at the farmer's market where we stopped to buy apples for pie on Saturday. I have never seen mums like this in Oregon- and most certainly never for such an appealing price.
I never expected to be here in the heartland for a month or to have to reschedule my flight three times but that is how it has turned out. There is no cause for concern or worry over this long, arduous wait for a baby. It's pretty clear that the expected due date was miscalculated and everything is really on schedule as it should be. Birth is mysterious but is a well-designed process that can be trusted. Babies are born when they are supposed to be if we just stay out of the way and let it happen. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. Stay tuned because in the very near future, by the grace of God, there will be a joyful introduction to our newest family member.
