Is it November already? Really?

Time sure does fly....or in biblical terms, "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away." - James 4:14 (one of my favorites!)

I was reminded of this during a visit from my parents - in a sermon given by a pastor that I thank God for bringing into our church - Joe Allio. I could talk about the Allio family's influence in our Christian walk, but I'll save that for another time...So much has happened this past month! It's been hard to just sit back and appreciate everything that has transpired - I am so thankful that God has provided for our family again - a new home, in a cul-de-sac, right near the school, a ONE's amazing. Really, in July I was praying for just that...and poof, here I am typing away in my nice, new, home. What did I do to deserve this? The beauty of it is, nothing. I did nothing, and I can't DO anything to earn God's grace, either. It was just given to an undeserving sinner like me. More on this to come...but for now, a couple pictures to prove how fast time has gone, the first is from 2008, the second from this year:
