In the beginning of last month, my older cousin josh, who lives in San Diego, got to stop by his hometown in Maryland and visit us before he headed off to Afghanistan. We got the news about his deployment to Afghanistan around summer time of this year. Of course it was hard for all of us to accept this reality but we are confident that God is fully in control, and we are trusting in His sovereignty.
We hope and pray he will be filled with strength and peace from God, that he will be kept safe and walk confidently and without fear.
Please continue to keep him in your prayers.
We all are hoping and praying for your safe return!
There were plenty of pictures I took during this family gathering.
The time eventually came where all the glorious leaves fell off the trees and completely covered the ground, only leaving a slight view of green grass. As hard as it is to let go of the magnificent sight of the trees during autumn peak season, I have to say, scattered leaves set a perfect surrounding for captivating photos and they surely do create the perfect prop!
