Let it Snow December 10, 2007

It’s been a great weekend.  We had snow on Thursday (only a couple of inches so I’m still praying for a foot).  But it was enough to try our sledding hill in the back yard for the first time.  It was an afternoon of snow ball fights, snow angels, and shoveling the driveway (which I still enjoy).

Then we got ice on Saturday so Sunday services at church were cancelled.  I was excited about that.  Which probably sounds weird coming from someone who works at a church.  But Sundays are relentless.  They come every 7 days (newsflash for some of you I know).  As soon as one is over, I start preparing for the next one.  It was nice to be away from the organized service.  We still had church.  It just included Legos, picture books, and the song “The Itsy, Bitsy Spider” (which would probably make church services more interesting).  We sang Christmas and worship songs together and talked about Jesus.  What we did this last Sunday morning is more important than what I do most Sunday mornings.  I hope our kids grow up realizing that there is so much more to God than where we attend church.  And we need times together, like this weekend, to remind us of that.

you know i really agree with you about LAST Sunday, we really enjoyed the staying home, drinking Eggnog (yes we did LOL) and would you believe FINALLY putting up the Christmas tree…how pathetic are we?

I’m assuming that last line is more of a rhetorical question

Some of my favorite memories are the snowball fights or going to our special hill to really enjoy a great slope for sledding. There is something about snow and kids. Maybe not just with the kids…last year one weekend when we arrived at the ranch to a snow covered ground, I was awe-striken. Snow does that to me. Just another one of God’s amazing miracles.
