The root of joy is gratefulness…it is not joy that makes us grateful, it is gratitude that makes us joyful.

“Life’s not all about the stuff we can accumulate or the honors people heap on us. Serving people in the name of Jesus is what really matters in the world. We have to step into peoples’ lives so that they can be changed by God.But we really have to start believing this is our mission – that this is the authority that is ours as children of God. Simple acts can start to change thousands of peoples’ lives.

So I’m taking a stand – and I hope others will – to stand outside of the walls of the church, rubbing shoulders with the lost and to really live what I believe and embrace who I am in Jesus Christ. We are called to share our joy by serving the lost. The poor. The sick. The brokenhearted. The least of these. In Christ, we are given the courage and strength to change the world.”

…severe sore throat, congestion etc., have knocked Jon and I flat on our backs for the past couple of days. Neither of us can remember ever being this sick…when in doubt, blame it on Texas :-(

We came home last night, after having dinner at our friends house, to find Kobi (who has never pooed or peed in the house in his life) had gone runny “number two” all over Irelynd’s room. He had been acting funny before we left, but I never would have guessed what was coming. I don’t know if it’s good or bad, but Irelynd has a huge, super cute rug that takes up her entire room, and for some reason, that is where Kobi decided he would deposit his treasures. Why he chose this spot, I don’t know. Maybe it’s the flower border on the rug that made him feel like he was outside pooing in the flowers…who knows…all I could think of at that moment was what method I was going to use to kill my beloved dog! So after my meltdown moment had passed, Jon did the dirty work of cleaning up the poo, and I started the first of many steam cleaning attempts. Today, after three steam cleans and about fifty spot scrubs, the rug is almost back to it’s normal color. Most importantly, it’s back to it’s original odor…odorless. Oh yeah…and Kobi is still alive :-)

Here comes the sun!

After literally ten days of clouds, rain and ice, the sun finally emerged today and brought us all some much needed relief. Irelynd, who has been under the weather for the past few days, was finally able to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. We enjoyed every last minute of the day, because the ten day forecast looks as though it will be a repeat of the past ten days. Ugh!!
This a picture out our front door a few days ago. Everything was completely covered in a thick sheet of ice.
