One of the reasons I love Indiana

The Snow!

Yesterday afternoon we watched as 5 or 6 inches of snow covered the ground. It was quite the treat for Linda, my mother-in-law who was visiting with us at the time. Of course my kids were elated. They don't care if there is 1 inch or 6 inches they love playing in the snow.

Simeon and Anna spent their time sledding and building igloos and ended the evening with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate.

Then, Simeon and I got our snow day! He had been praying for six feet but thankfully God was merciful and sent us six inches instead. You know it is cold and snowy when Indiana schools have a snow day.

For those of you who are turning your AC on and enjoying 63 degrees you don't know what you are missing :) We are rolling in the snow in -10 degree windchills! There has got to be a happy medium somewhere - but for now I will enjoy one of the many reasons I love Indiana.


This is winter!

This too shall pass

When I feel a heavy load and know that I can't carry the burdens on my own I am reminded by a gentle Savior that this too shall pass.

In the middle of the turbulence surrounding you
These trying times that are so hard to endure
In the middle of what seems to be your darkest hour
Hold fast your heart and be assured

This too shall pass
Like every night that's come before it
He'll never give you more than you can bear
This too shall pass
So in this thought be comforted
It's in His Hands
This too shall pass

The Father knows the tears you cry before they fall
He feels your pain, His heart and yours are one
The Father knows that sorrow's heavy chains are strong
But with His strength, you'll overcome

This too shall pass
Like every night that's come before it
He'll never give you more than you can bear
This too shall pass
So in this thought be comforted
It's in His Hands
This too shall pass

So set your eyes upon the mountain
And lift your hands up to the sky
And let His arms of love surround you
And take you to the other side

This too shall pass
Like every night that's come before it
He'll never give you more than you can bear
This too shall pass
So in this thought be comforted
It's in His Hands
This too shall pass
