Sunday Happenings and House Update...

We had a great Sunday, hope that you did too! Church was great this morning, we heard a message about letting the Lord turn the most difficult of life circumstances into beauty and seeing the beauty of the Lord in the mundane. It really spoke to me as I struggle to understand pain and suffering. My hearts breaks for people who have to go through losing someone they love or losing their health. It is hard for me to the see the beauty of the Lord in these situations. I feel challenged now to really look for beauty and believe Romans 8:28 with all my heart. "For all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to us purpose". 


I took these sweet pictures of Susanna before church today because she just looked like a doll! She is growing up so fast. I can't believe that she is 15 months old now!


This pic is so Susie, this girl will not wear shoes for anything, the minute you put them on her, she tries as hard as she can to get them off. This is why in the cold, she must wear sleepers, footed pants or tights to avoid ending up barefooted!


Now for the house update... The Bears family is helping us wire our house! We could not be more grateful. Steve and Kimmy are both electrical engineers and have wired a few houses in the past. They are using this opportunity to teach the oldest two out of their brood of five boys about electrical work.

Little Chris Bears, age 4 took this pic of Kimmy and I with his pudgy
little, shaky hands, he is so adorable! 

It was fun to see our house and land covered in snow for the first time! It was so beautiful and peaceful. The sunset in the mountains behind the house was breathtaking! As the sun went down, it cast a beautiful pink glow out over the snow. Talk about seeing the beauty of the Lord! These pics just don't do it justice.


The boys had so much fun playing in the snow on the land for the first time. The Bears boys' even brought sleds, what fun!





Thank you Lord for creating beauty in all things!
