This post title comes from one of the layouts I did this weekend for Amazing Digi-Scrapping Race. I was to choose my favorite film (impossible) and write how it impacts me.I chose About a Boy. As I wrote on the layout, we first saw this film when we were learning as a family that God had given us some pretty powerful back-up in each other… and God surrounded us with some strong support. We re-watched the film last night… still funny, still touching, still reminds us that connection and people are good things to have in our lives… that families are sometimes peculiarly made, and not as we first envisioned, but I am so grateful to all of you in our lives, you keep us strong… you are the best back-up ever….

and my final ASDR layout, a lift of one of my partner’s layouts and about ASDR itself…
Katherine really summed up the trip to Moorhead the best in her blog, and we have the most amazing photos from this trip, a final layout from two favorites of mine.
God arranged for us to be on the trip with her… we originally were not going to go, and right near our departure, thins were starting to point towards not going, and the arrangements of lodging and food and etc etc were beginning to overwhelm, and I asked God in prayer to show me clearly “should we go or not?” and that night in my reading he said, ”[I] chart the path ahead of [you] and tell [you] where to stop and rest. Every moment [I] know where [you are].” psalm 139…
Every step of the trip was taken care of… something strong was built, dreams were born… I serve (not well enough) a mighty and loving God.
And Mary is growing up… I saw it in watching her in this environment… I am so proud of her, and we miss her dreadfully, it was a smashing summer.
Today we are beginning to get ready for school next week, and I am writing, and looking at in progress projects, and planning for the Autumn holidays, yumm…
