|I think I already posted this on a previous day, but speaking of ice this morning made me think of this peaceful pic of our front door with the icicles.|
Syd's workplace is so busy these days. He starts at 6:00 in the morning and tonight goes back from 5:00-8:00 for a few extra hours of work. He'll stay in town rather than drive the 19 miles home for just a couple hours. He assured me that a veggie supreme would be on the plate for supper. I packed him a good lunch, but just not enough for supper too! I read a quote today, "help me to focus on making a life, not just making a living." We all know this, but it's good to be reminded once in a while. Life can get SO busy. I am thankful for some the extra hours Syd can put in, as well as the job God has given me through the P.O., but am so much more thankful for the days that I can be home, doing some "building". On a day off last week, I was listening to "Sunshine on the Soapsuds" over WMUU radio station. These really do bless my heart. If you've listened, Beneth Peters Jones' little teaching begins with a quote that reminds us to let God teach us these things that will help us be "building rather than battering your homes." (not an exact quote) They've now changed the word "battering" to something else, but I liked that word.
How easy it is to "batter" things down. My friend Sarah and I have started a Bible study together. It is "A Virtuous Woman, A Closer Look", from Proverbs 31. Without putting the Lord first, we have the power to pluck our house down with our own hands. I am thankful that the Lord is all-powerful and that He is doing the work of making me more like His Son, Jesus.
Much has been happening in our lives, but here is a big highlight. Our nephew was married! I'll post just a few of the photos. It was a lovely wedding. A couple of these pics are Mom with her grandchildren and with great granddaughter, Meg.

Mother and sisters of the groom. Love this photo!
|As you can see, Meg was a good subject. Isn't Jessie a beautiful bride?!|
|I just loved this angle, but you can't see their faces, sorry|
Syd and I have been praying for many of our neighbors here in town. We were thrilled that Carl and Tina came to Dallas' wedding! it was a good opportunity to spend time together in a place where the Gospel was clearly given. Please pray for many of our neighbors near Darling Hill.
The rain has slowed down considerably and I believe I'll get dressed. I'm so glad you stopped in this day. Take care!
