The Marshall Family Summer '12 Staycation #1

This summer we are hoping to take lots of little "Staycations." Today we took our first one.

We had to go to Champaign to pick up a bridesmaid dress for a wedding I'm in October and needed to stop by Babies R Us to get some new Dr. Brown bottle supplies. On the way home we decided to go to Allerton Park in Monticello. We were only there for a short time but we had fun!


I love this one!


Can you pick out my two Marshall men?



On the drive home we saw a double rainbow! I had Jeff pull over so I could take pictures. It is tough to see, but it is there, I promise.






Jeff and I said a short prayer there on the side of the road. We thanked God for the reminder that He will not destroy the earth again by flood and for all of His promises and His love. We prayed for Ethan and for this journey we are on.

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28 (KJV)

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (NIV)

I am thankful for the hope that I have in the Lord's promises, and although sometimes it is extremely hard to understand things this side of heaven, I know that His promises are true.
