Hello All! We have had a beautiful Fall week and and even better weekend. Ben and I hadn't spent time together just going out and doing something different and fun for awhile so this weekend we spent the day at a pumpkin patch, walking on a peaceful path and then going to an awesome burger joint.
Here are just a few pictures from the day.

There were also really yummy apples, which of course we thought were free.

As we later found out, they were the "forbidden" fruit:)! Long story...:)

Then we headed to Bellingham, to go for a walk. We saw the biggest leaves we had ever seen.

Just a few more of my favorites from the pumpkin patch.

This just looked like the "perfect little pumpkin" sitting there all by itself!

Now to explain the title of this post. Have you ever felt restless in life, like you have prayed in every way and with all the words you can think of to use? Have you ever really chased after the meaning of what it truly means to completely rest in the Lord? Well, that is exactly what I have been trying to figure out this week. One reason God amazes me so much is because just when you think you are starting to have it all figured out, that you are growing in His knowledge rapidly, He will start you new, to mold you in a different way, to help you begin to learn even more about His insane love. I am really trying to learn what it truly means to rest in Him, to have a true, pure joy that only comes when we become completely submitted to Him.
I heard this song and absolutely fell in love with it and the words. (And I really like Audrey Assad, the artist:) ) Keep scrolling down to listen to the song!
"During the days of Jesus' life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission." Hebrews 5:7

  1. YES! YES! YES! Amanda -- you must've known I've needed to 'hear' the words you typed... I have felt restless! I'm on to a new chapter in life in Orlando and it's just crazy... and I know that with these challenges I'm facing God is growing me through them. THANK YOU for the reminder!!
