A little to share

For four weeks in a row we had snow storms, the fifth week called for another and we were spared. Now two weeks later, all the snow has finally melted. You can still find a few piles here and there, but the rain has taken care of the snow piles that were previously taller than humans. During the storms, I drove by a church who's sign outside read, "Whoever is praying for snow can stop now!" Down the road from our house I saw a homemade sign stuck in a large pile of snow, "Yellow snow on demand."

A new season is upon us and we are busy. Ben is preparing, like a good farmer, for chicks and laying hens that we'll be getting in the next few weeks. During the slowest season in real estate, I've had a break from making virtual tours for Pissocra-Matthias Realty. It'll pick up soon enough. Meanwhile, the Mommy group in Sugarcreek I've been attending since Juju was born has been growing like crazy. The leader and I decided that I would start a new group at my church, since we're in different towns. It starts this Tuesday. We already have a "Baby Room" at our church where young moms come and take from our baby related donations. The two ministries seem to go well together. I'm taking on a greater role in the latter ministry as well helping recruit donations to keep up with the needs we're finding.

We're still having fun with the worship team, also growing. The whole church is really. It's neat to be part of something you can see God moving in. I'm also working with a couple people as a counselor. It's so much better than before though, seems like all the fun is zapped when you get paid for something.

We were able to have dinner with our former foster daughter, Kim, this past week. She left yesterday for Wisconsin to be with her baby. We're still waiting to hear that you got there ok, Kim! A friend from LeTourneau University, Jamie Zaehring and his wife, Michelle will be visiting us this week from Washington state, we can hardly wait to see them. I wonder if we'll have the chicks by then!

We have life, we have death. My grandma's twin brother died this week and I'm praying she and Grandpa drive home safely today from Illinois to Tennessee. Our two friends expecting twins had their babies about three weeks ago, and lots more babies have come since! Welcome to the world Austin and Sienna, Gideon and Salem, Kolter Alan, Josie Bloom and Elsie Grace!! We're so thankful for all of you!
