Snow days!!

Well this entire week has turned into a snow week, no school due to bad roads. Now I know if my Minnesota friends saw what I was talking about they laugh. But this is the south y'all!! We are not use to this kind of thing and that is my story and I am sticking to it! Yes I know I was born and raised in Minnesota but that doesn't mean I like it, I was definitely made to live in the south! Thank you God for putting me together with a man that required us to move south!

With that we haven't gone anywhere this week, cold and snow just isn't the kind of thing I want to be out in about in. The hubby was home first couple days so they had some fun in the snow! The last few days we have been playing games, making Valentine's and having some art fun!

Meet the new family addition, Mr. Snowman!

Kids having fun in the snow!

Peter has found a new way to catch birds! Smart cat!

Abigail painting a horse.

Aidan playing with stamps. 

This week I like to leave you with a few blogs that I think our worth sharing and may be an encouragement for most of my readers:

I already know we have the most important role. This is from The MOM Initiative who our moms group is affiliated with. Five Reasons Moms Matter http://www.themominitiative.com/2014/02/06/why-moms-matter/

Yes, this is normal~ http://wearethatfamily.com/2014/02/the-3-words-that-can-revolutionize-motherhood/

Our moms group is reading a book by Jill Savage, currently she is going through chemo treatments, she shared this~I Peter 3:15 says, “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.  Seven reasons I have hope in the hardship. http://www.jillsavage.org/seven-reasons-i-have-hope-in-the-hardship/

And then I came across this quote and it speaks volumes:  “In every situation and circumstance of your life, God is always doing a thousand different things that you cannot see and you do not know.” John Piper


Jesus told us in this world we will face opposition and we will not be liked~"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference." "Listening to God is not always the easiest route, but His voice can be trusted to guide us." http://www.itakejoy.com/gods-voice-has-always-led-me-to-pursue-ideals-the-opposite-direction-from-the-world/


Great marriage advice~“Determine to pray more words over your marriage than you speak about your marriage.” http://proverbs31.org/devotions/devo/five-scriptures-to-pray-over-your-marriage/

I will leave you with this ~This is so simple and full of grace~Life is about loving. http://holleygerth.com/as-you-look-back-on-your-week/
