Life is going to be a gush of non stop busyness starting Wednesday, until we can catch our breath--hopefully by January life will take up its normal flow. My in-laws are arriving Wednesday from Minnesota, and will stay on with the girls until we arrive home from Cleveland. The girls are crazy excited to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa. I know that they will have a great time just hanging out and eating Grandma's good German cooking. We all are also so looking forward to Thanksgiving, and spending it at the Fernando home with so many special friends...and I am ever so grateful that I didn't have the surgery before hand, so I could totally enjoy the blessing of being back in the States with these amazing people and their culinary gifts!!!

We broke our contract for the new house, as on further research and with help from the energy company, we learned that the EMF levels were ridiculously high by the pond, and around the walking trail. High, consistent, EMF levels, have been found to be possibly correlated to childhood leukemia, and adult brain tumors--since we already have one of those in the family, we decided we really didn't want to risk any more! So, we are back to square one...should we build, or buy? I thought house shopping was supposed to be fun???

I want to thank you again for all of your support. I receive way to many compliments from you all on my strength. I know that the faith of my friends and family, is what keeps me strong when the road ahead of me looks bleak--it is your faith and your prayers that carry me farther than you can imagine. Thank you.

Amen to what Wendi said. Great plans He made for you and all of us. Let's all plan for a getaway vacation next year :) out in the woods like we did in Gatlinburg a few years back or out by the beach like Holden Beach or whatever :)

We all will be praying especially that day for you and those involved. It's gonna be a great day.

Dearest Autumn and family, I had taken a sabbatical from FB to re-evaluate priorities in our family and draw nearer to God. This has been an amazing year for us and I praise God! I logged back on to FB last week and I just received a message from Sandra that I should check out your blog. I had no idea that anything was wrong. I am sorry that you must suffer through any of this and yet I know that Andrew is by your side and that our God is stronger than any of this. It is all for His glory! I will pray for you every day and if it is ok with you I would like to add you to the prayer warriors list of my church in Miami Springs, Florida. I was reading Philippians this morning and Chapter 4, verse 19 seems God-given just for you. It says, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Notice the little word all. ---Trista

With God all things are possible and sometimes we don't understand why things happen, God does and truly cares, loves you so much. He will use this in a big way. Praise God for special people in our lives and the joy you bring to ours! A merry heart is like good medicine. We are praying for you all day. We love you. "Anne of Green Gables!"
