Moses and Obama

Moses was part of history today watching our new president be inaugurated.

A little spring

In the middle of winter, I always long for spring. I found this picture of some tulips I grew a couple springs ago. Thank you Jesus for the hope of what is to come. Last night in youth group Mike taught about faith being the assurance of things hoped for. I love how God created bulbs to be planted in the winter and then when the ground gets warm enough the beautiful little green shoots start poking out of the ground. I'm also thankful for the waiting period. If there were no waiting there would be no hope and then there would be no excitement about anything!! So, thank you that tulips take all winter to bloom, and thank you for babies that take nine months to form! Thank you Jesus for the hope of your calling and that one day you're coming back!

Here it is!

I'm going to try this blogging thing so that you can be a part of our lives wherever you are! So here goes...

We are still having Christmas, even though the decorations are down in our house we are having Christmas with Mike's mom on Friday! Long-live the spirit! It was so much fun to have Moses participate in present opening, decorating and cookie making. He loved every minute of it and even learned what a "tree" is ("gee" in Moses language). Happy New Year friends!!
