Photos of Richmond

Well, I have not been on xanga as much as I would like to be. That will change this week as life settles back down. My husband put up some pictures from our visit to my oldest son at University of Richmond. Thought I would share a few with you.

We were taken by the chapel on campus. I was thrilled to find my son attends services even when we are not there to prod him- Praise God. Here I am looking at the stained glass windows.

Because it was Univ. of Richmond and their mascot is a spider, one of the windows has a spider on it.

Here is the complete window – you can see the spider on the lowest right corner

While I really wanted to spend all my time with my son, I sent my other two children off with him to attend classes. I wanted them to get a feeling of what college was like. God honored that plan and my next to go off to college sees himself as able.

Christopher, the freshman at U of R standing with books, and Edward sitting next to me, with my daughter Katherine on the other bench.

Here they are going off to classes.

One evening they had a pep rally and Jim got them to pose with the school mascot, Spidey.

But, before they did that, Edward (red shirt) was telling us “NO WAY!!!” One mom was sitting at the table and asked the boys if they would not mind posing with some cheerleaders, the boys agreed. She was the mom of one of the cheerleaders, so she sent over a few, here is a proud moment for Christopher and Edward.

We also went to Virginia beach with the children to give them some fun. After swimming in the ocean and watching the King Neptune Parade we went to a local restaurant. I think this is one of my favorite pictures, for they were having so much fun with each other.

I miss Christopher, but am glad he is happy at college. I pray that next year we find the perfect fit for Edward, and in two years Katherine both of whom are still in high school, living at home. The years go by so quickly.

Hoping you have a blessed day!

About Heather Marsten

Welcome to Heather's Blog. I'm looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I'm thrilled. Already I've met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas. I'm a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I'm proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They've become fine, compassionate, and loving people. Empty nest? Nah, I'm too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue - one of which is blogging :D I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn. One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware - an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy. I'm hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love -- therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname - wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next. I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. Have a blessed day. Heather
