Snow Day Number 5 this winter

Hello All

We are on another snow day today.  That makes 5 so far this winter.  I am so enjoying my time at home.  I have cleaned a bit, layed around a bit, read a bit, played Just Dance with my daughter.  I am a terrible dancer.  But it has been nice to be at home.  We have been busy with Courtney and volleyball on the weekends.  It is such a joy to watch her play volleyball just as it was to watch Alyssa dance and Ryan play football and basketball.  I just love to watch the talents God has given to each of our kids.  I would love to show pictures but all the pictures have other kids in them and I don't know that those parents want their kids face on a blog.  So at her next tournament I will try to do a better job of just getting her. 

I am still really enjoying my devotion time with the study of James.  I am leaning so much and getting to know the ladies in my group.  So far I think James 22 is my favorite and a great reminder.  Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says.  I know I am so guilty of that.  I know what the Bible says but I don't always do what I am suppose to even when I have that feeling in my gut I should not be doing this, or watching this, or saying this.  I hope you have a few minutes to spend in Gods word everyday.  I know when my kids were little it was so hard.  Sometimes I would lay down with them at nap time and while I tried to get them to sleep I would do my devotions.  It was not a perfect situation but it was quite time with the Lord and I know it made God happy. 

I am also participating in the Be My Valentine Marriage Challenge you can find it here.  My sweet, hard working husband deserves the best so I am going to show him that.  I feel as the kids were growing he was always put on the back burner.  Not on purpose of course it just happens.  He has never once complained or said a word about it.  That tells you what a wonderful man he really is.  So I am hopeing to have fun with this challege.

My husband gave me this quize yesterday.
