Then and Now

I have been anxiously waiting for a light dusting of snow to get some good comparison pictures. Well, yesterday was the day. We got about two inches of unexpected snow which has everything looking amazingly beautiful today.

Anyway, so I have been waiting to post this since this summer. Two years ago when we moved into this amazing house God has blessed us with, we had a great veiw of an old farm and farmhouse. Most people around here refer to it as Jake Geib’s Farm. (even now) Here is what it looked like.

Well, alot can change in two years, and if you live around here or if you follow my posting you are aware that there was a bunch of construction going on this summer. It started about this time last year when the barn and house were torn done, the beams and rocks sold to willing buyers of old barn building materials. After they were removed plans were made to widen the road and change the intersection just beyond the bridge. Well, now that everything is said and done, here is what the veiw has changed to over the past two years.

I think I liked having the buildings there. It is a little hard to compare, the tops photos are from our film camera and the bottom ones are digital but I think you can still see a stark contrast here.

Well, thats it for this week unless something amazing happens. May God bless you with a slower paced week.

Longing

With it being so bitter cold out I find my heart longing to see these beautiful creatures again.

I know it’s not 20 below zero here, like our friends in Maine are experiencing or the 6 below in Mongolia (which if I understand right, is warm) but it is still super cold to this city girl.

I have even caught myself looking forward to this site…

And it may be the pregnancy in me (or the fact the the dust from our wood stove is collecting everywhere) but part of me is getting excited to open all the windows and do a massive dusting, sweeping, decobwebbing, window cleaning, and making the house smell “fresh” again.

Well, may you enjoy this season (even if its bitter cold), knowing that if the Lord tarries we will again see the sunshine, flowers and new growth that comes with spring. Until then dream of those days along with me.

Blessings

UGH

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WERE MISSED IN MY MASS EMAIL.

 WE DID NOT HAVE OUR BABY, DESPITE WHAT THE HOPSITAL EMAILED OUT. I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE WHAT HAPPENED TO GET THAT EMAIL SENT BUT NO OUR LITTLE BUNDLE IS CURRENTLY NESTLED AWAY DOING SUMMERSAULTS IN MY TUMMY AND SHOULD BE FOR THE NEXT FOUR MONTHS. SO PLEASE IF YOU DID GET AN EMAIL FROM THE HOSPITAL IGNORE IT. AGAIN I APOLOGIZE AND HAVE NO CLUE HOW THIS HAPPENED. THANK YOU!!!

So I had a first this week. I got to experince what it was like to be a mom of four children three and under. It wasn’t so bad. For several hours I had a three and half year old, my two and a half year old, my 14 month old and a three month old. Do the math! This is a very plausible arrangement. Not that this is what I am striving for in the least. It did lend to a very caotic lunch time. But playtime went great. So with out further adeau` here are some pictures.

I was very tickled with how the boys handled this sweet baby girl. It actually made me excited to bring “baby may” home to two very loving and gentle brothers.

Next was yesterday’s 4th and 5th grade boys sunday school class winter party. There were 18 boys from the class plus three additional boys that belonged to the teachers. It went really well, we played a balloon popping game with them, then sent them on a verse scavenger hunt, these two activities I missed getting pictures of. But the next two I did. We had a donut eating contest and yes, two of the teachers got involved (one being DH).

The next event was a pinyata (sorry spanish people for my misspelling). They really got into this and when they didn’t break it they asked the teachers to join in the fun.

It was a great way to spend a sunday afternoon. But I am glad it is only once a year .

Well, may God bless you this week as you seek to serve Him by serving others.
