Well, we did move (yes, again!). But there have been several excursions before then that we haven’t shared. So, to keep things in the proper order, and not too overwhelming (and to keep you in suspense!), I think I will start from several weeks ago, before we moved.
One of the places we visited was Roubidoux Spring and Creek, it is a very pretty area.
“All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.” Ecclesiastes 1:7
Pearl and Laurel
“The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Psalm 24:1
“It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
There we are, looking over the railing at the spring
“There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not seen: The lion’s whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it. He putteth forth His hand upon the rock; He overturneth the mountains by the roots. He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and His eye seeth every precious thing.” Job 28:7-10
We got to see some scuba divers go into the underwater cavern!
“God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause His face to shine upon us; Selah.” Psalm 67:1
‘Bowling’ in our kitchen!
We also explored Miller Cave.
This isn’t the cave itself, but some interesting rock formations near it.
Once we came over the ridge, we hiked along the rocks, then down the side where the cave entrance was.
Hiking down to the cave was somewhat difficult, as it was rather on the side of a cliff!

Daddy and Ruby 🙂
“I will love Thee, O LORD, my strength.” Psalm 18:1
A 100-year-old walnut tree, sticking out of the cave.
The mouth of the cave was somewhat large.
Pearl looks in some of the smaller passages
Farther back in the cave
Not a very good picture, but that is one of the bats we saw in the cavern.
I’ll also include a few pictures of our walk near Stone Mill Spring:
These plants were growing in the water. I am not sure what they are.
“Unto Thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that Thy name is near Thy wondrous works declare.”
Our first meal in our new house! (More on that later, LORD willing)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
