Report On Summer Tour

Hello everyone! We are home from our summer music tour. We've been home for a week and a half actually, but have been so busy with getting caught up with things at home I'm just now getting to blog. 
   First of all I would like to say that God is good. This summer He blessed us with health (I didn't get sick once!!), safety, no vehicle problems, lots of opportunities to share Jesus' love, time with wonderful people, new friends, old friends, and so many more blessings that I could be here for a couple hours at least just telling about what God did in our family this summer. God is good. 
   Secondly, I would like to thank everyone who came out to our shows and supported us. If it weren't for you, we couldn't do what we do. Y'all bring us a lot of joy with your smiles, stories, and friendship. Thank you. 
    Highlights of the trip for me:
 •Lake Itasca Family Festival. We had so much playing music at this festival, making new friends, and catching up with old friends. Everyone just seems to really love the Lord and care for others. I left feeling renewed in my faith and desire to serve God and share Jesus with everyone. 
 •Climbing Crane Mountain in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate NY.
 •Traveling through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan—beautiful. On our trip back from NY to MN, as we were crossing Mackinac Bridge, the sun was just setting over Lake Michigan. We stayed in a motel that had a beautiful beach on Lake Michigan right across the road. It was getting dark when we stopped for the night, but Micah and I just had to go swimming. It was the most refreshing and beautiful swim.  The sun was disappearing over the lake, millions of stars began to appear in the clear sky over us, and the water was cold and clean. In that moment, I was overwhelmed with God's goodness to me. 
 •Fishing and canoeing/kayaking on the lake that my Grandpa lives on was a lot of fun. My dad spent a lot of time catching fish there. 
 •Horseback riding with my cousin—so enjoyable!

And that is just a tiny glimpse into the blessings we experienced. There were so many wonderful families and individuals that made it a memorable summer. Different people throughout the whole trip taught me lessons that I will use in life. Thank you. 
  Praise the Lord!

July Update and Schedule

 Hope everyone has been enjoying a blessed summer. We sure have. Our garden has been thriving due to the wonderful rains that have come our way lately. Today we're canning salsa-such rewarding work! 
 We've been playing a lot of music each week at farmer's markets and churches. It's been fun getting to see people we love and meet new wonderful people.  Guys, there are so many wonderful people in this world! 
  Here's a quick update on each of my brothers and sister:
  Anna is home right now. We picked her up at the airport last week and have really loved having her around. She enjoyed her time volunteer teaching in Costa Rica and got pretty attached to her students.
  Aaron is married now to a beautiful girl named Lydia. Lydia has a little red haired daughter named Merci, and they have a baby due in December.  We're all so excited!
  Josiah is still working maintenance at Camp Winnamocka. He's been fishing a lot this summer.
  Daniel is working on a construction crew down in Murfreesboro, AR. He's planning to go back to Fayetteville this fall and work on getting another year of college behind him. 
  Micah..well right now, Micah is running around the woods behind our garden like a wild indian, with a hatchet and his face painted up in hunter's camouflage paint. That boy is so full of life...  As much as I get aggravated at him, I can't imagine life without him! He keeps me laughing, and I'm thankful to God for giving me a buddy. 
  Mom and Dad are doing just fine. They're some kind of hard workers and are always learning new things. 
  And me. Abby. I've been so blessed by God, and everybody is so good to me. I don't really understand why, but people are always doing things to bless me. I'm grateful. And I'm loving this season of life. I'm still cleaning houses and helping people with their yard work every week and loving it. And, of course, music. I love music. And I'm getting to live my dream right now, playing music with a purpose. And the purpose is to share the Gospel. What is the Gospel? Oh! I'm so glad you asked! ;)  The Gospel is the good news that God loves you so much that He sent His holy and sinless Son to take upon Himself the wrath of God which you and I fully deserved because of our sin so that we could stand before the holy and just God and be called clean. Jesus took our punishment so that we could be adopted into the family of God.
"Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me." (From the hymn, Before The Throne Of God Above).
  So amazing!  
 "I have good news to bring, and that is why I sing!"
