🍁🍂🌻 Welcome, September... 🍁🍂🌻
...But, if you don't mind, we'll hang onto summer a little longer! If you remember, in our last email we'd just returned home after some diverse ministry in upstate New York and New Hampshire. Here's how we rounded out August:
Spent a week in Sierra Vista, AZ with the grands, while their mama and daddy took an anniversary trip back to beautiful Hawaii, where they were stationed with the Army several years ago. The way the military sends our little Forrest family somewhere new every few years, time with the kids is most precious. Mostly, besides fixing meals, I was simply "entertainment-nana." It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.
At the end of my week at Ft. Huachuca, I headed up to Tucson, where I spoke at a women's "camp" for Hope Community Church. They audaciously chose "Pride vs.. Humility" as their theme, and so I focused my speaking on Moses, whom the Lord declared was the humblest man on the surface of the earth (Num 12:3). What a dangerous topic...it's like praying for patience...you can only learn "humility" by experiencing how easy it is for pride to rise up and try to take over.
