What happened to October 2009? and Cedar Rapids Flood Recovery.

Wow, what a month.

I've hardly touched my needles. I'm about to take a purse off the needles, and I'm carrying a purse that I knit, then wove (on my new loom) the handle for the purse. I used two identical belts and removed their buckles to attach a woven strap. It turned out very nice.

The one I'm knitting now is cammo colors. Brown, tan and olive green, very nice. It's also large.

The month was filled with phone calls to our supporting churches and friends, designing and sending a newsletter, nearly a week with our wonderful grandchildren, and several meetings and church services at a supporting church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The area reminds us a lot of Waveland, MS after Katrina hit in 2005. Last June when floods were ravaging our little community of Martinsville, IN, Cedar Rapids, Iowa had the river overflow and destroy so many homes and businesses, it's amazing how well they are doing.

I try to keep my blog current and tell what is going on in our lives, but sometimes it has to take it's place in the background while life carries us.

We are so privileged to serve as missionaries to Bikers, traveling the US, churches in 22 states support us, and the events and church services always offer new friends, people who pray for us and stay in touch to encourage us. We are two very blessed people with an incredibly supportive family. Who could ask for more.
