Our Trust is in HIM…for everything!

As we prepare our boat for Hurricane Matthew (we are at the blue dot and this is a possible projection)



fullsizerender-copy-449and all the unexpected, we rest in the One who is with us on our boat…“Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?” Luke 8:25  We will not fear, for He is with us!  We plan to leave our well-prepared boat at the dock when/if an evacuation is declared, and head inland to the grandparent’s home in Lake City.

We are at a new marina on the ICW in Palm Coast, FL.img_6291

A quiet little place with quite a few live-aboards,


some strange passersby, img_6338

and some sweet, friendly sea creatures who feel welcome and safe.img_6248img_6318

One of our sweet harbormasters, Ro, on the left, (sweet Debbie is on the right)


started this great company!   www.niicestuff.com


“At Niice Stuff, our mission is to help more adolescent children like our son find their forever families.”

NIICE is an acronym for Nurturing Individuals, Inspiring Children Everyday!img_6332

If you know me well, you know I LOVE smiley faces!

They have chosen to sponsor Jon for his first surf competition in Novemberimg_6320

and his surfboard is proudly giving them acknowledgement and thanks! img_6324

Life is still awesome as Richard and Katherine (11th and 10th graders) are dual-enrolling at Daytona State College this semester and loving it. img_6378img_6379

David started a side business, WavyWireworks ,


and is busy creating amazing pieces of wrapped wire jewelry and selling them…so easily that he has a growing list of commissioned pieces on his agenda.  Keeping his creative mind and gifted hands busy!


All is well with the Wells!

      Right back to you guys!! This is a first for us, so thank you! We just saw Jonathan’s little friend who was in the surf competition in North Carolina. Did Townes compete in that one as well? Miss you! Thought of you all as Matthew passed over Nassau Bahamas.
