When I was 7 years old I was born again! Five years later, the Lord filled me with His Holy Spirit and called me out to serve in full time service in the ministry. My heart is missions and a longing to love people into God's Kingdom.
I love to teach God's Word, pray with people and write. 
Soon, we are hoping our Jesus opens amazing doors to walk into mission endeavors.

Really Snowed In?

I am constantly reading posts on my face book how everyone longs for the warm sunshine and green grass. It seems  in almost all over the United States it's cold!
Here in the good old Midwest we have seen more snow than we have for years. Yet, I am old enough to remember the big snow storms in the mid 70's. I remember walking in snow,  hip deep.
I wasn't home schooled like my children are, so when we got snow it was; "Yipee! NO SCHOOL!"  So, we would make snowmen, throw mean snowballs at each other and go sledding.
I loved when daddy would take my baby brother and I to places with big hills. We had our Royal Racer (wooden sled) and dad would give us a big push and 'swoosh' down we went. I don't understand why other than a nose that was numb, I do not recall feeling cold at all. My mind just recalls all the fun and being with my favorite people in the world!
Desperate to get out of the house recently, the girls and I went outside a bit to play in the snow. It has been so cold lately, that we have just been huddled in our lovely, warm home day after day. If I didn't get outside soon, I believe I was going to implode!
So, we dug out the orange sled...tied a rope to it and mama pulled one child all around in the snow. Daddy came along and helped me pull both girls. Ya know what? I was having such a wonderful time that I didn't feel the cold, just a numb nose! :)

I was calculating that actually this time of being cuddled up in our house and the snow is short. It does feel as if we are being forced in a way to be closer together. Could that be why we see babies in most species in the Spring? :) Spring will get here, we will then be running from place to place. But, for now-I see God teaching ME to enjoy the present as His Gift to us. Each season in life is vital, they all have an important purpose in dozens of ways.
May I encourage you, enjoy this latter half of winter with fun, warmth and joy!
