My Mosaic (Oct 23)


Happy Friday!


We enjoyed our first dousing of snow this week, which meant I had to dig out the snow suits and snow boots. Thankfully it's melting already :) There's something about the white blanket that I just don't seem quite ready for, but the kids sure loved it!


It's good for me to remember that even though I may not enjoy something, others around me still do, and to feed their joy instead of starving it in my own distaste. The simple joys of hot chocolate and marshmallows, throwing snowballs and making snowmen, are sweet times.


So, let the good times roll! :)

He is God and I am Not

"With my limited pruning skills I could do a lot of damage to people’s lives. It takes a creator God to see into the depths of a person, to read their stories and know their intimate needs and desires"
