Year End Thoughts (or Snow in December)




Wow, I have not written a blog post in a while!  (Well, at least one with lots of type and pictures.) 
I need to be more faithful in posting, but life seems to get busy and I don't have time to sit down and write a reasonably decent post. Well, here goes.... 

It is now truly winter here! We have had two snows this week and it is fun to walk the puppies in the snow and watch them play. I don't think I have written about the puppies yet on here, so I will fill you in.
We got two Great Pyrenees pups in November, right after Thanksgiving. We are planning on getting a few goats and want the dogs to protect them from predators. It is hard to believe how big Great Pyrenees can get, because our pups are so small and cute!

I have been volunteering at a Bible Club for children in our area. It is a lot of fun, and I have learned so much from the children and other volunteers there. In January, I have a meeting scheduled to be certified as a teacher at Bible Club. I am a little nervous about how it will go, I have 3 "tests" to do, and if I pass, then I can start teaching a small group. It is neat to see how the Lord has prepared me for this and I am excited to be able to effectively share the Gospel and Biblical truths with children. 

A few days ago, my sisters went snow tubing Downtown. I went ice skating at the outdoor rink in the Myriad Gardens. It was so much fun! 

We are enjoying nights reading and playing "Scrabble" by the fireplace in our living room. It is rare now to have everyone in the family together in one room! 

Thanks for reading my blog. 

Have a Blessed New Year!

"Lo, I am with you always, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen."
 -Matthew 28:20

When our Lord Jesus gave the Great Commission to His disciples, He did not leave them alone. He promised them His presence and all these centuries later, we who serve the Lord may be assured of His abiding presence with us too. If the world sees us at all, it is probably as pilgrims, treading a lonely path. Yet we can know for a certainty that the Lord is with us! —Mark Fenn

He leaves us not alone to trace,
Our path across the waste;
But leads us still, with living grace,
Homeward, whereto we haste. —J. N. Darby
