The Best (little) Things in Life Are Free (sometimes)

Read this and thought it was just really fun.

Falling in love.
Laughing to hard your face hurts.
A hot shower.
No lines at Wal-mart.
A special glance.
Getting mail.
Taking a drive on a pretty road.
Hearing your favorite song on the radio.
Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
Hot towels out of the dryer.
A good conversation.
The beach.
Finding a $20 bill in your coat from last winter.
Laughing at yourself.
Running through sprinklers.
Laughing for absolutely no reason at all.
Having someone tell you your beautiful.
Laughing at an inside joke.
Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you.
Waking up and realizing you still have a few more hours to sleep.
Making new friends or spending time with old ones.
Playing with a new puppy.
Sweet dreams.
Hot chocolate.
Watching a good movie cuddled up on the sofa.
Song lyrics printed inside your new CD so you can sing along without feeling stupid.
Going to a really good concert.
Holding hands with some one you care about.
Running into an old friend and realizing that some things (good or bad) never change. Discovering that love is unconditional and stronger than time.
Hugging the person you love.
Watching the sunrise.

Afraid? Of What?

I have been asked by several people in the past few months if I was afraid of our new president.
My response is, "Why?" Although, yes he has said some things and done some things that are rather frightening to us as Christians and homeschoolers, it is all really stuff that has been going on a long time and now is coming out into the open.
There are those who have been planning what is going on for some time now, that could be a scary thought except that it says in the scripture, that God is sitting up in Heaven laughing at them.
Isn't that a pleasant thought? Well, for us anyway.
I am not afraid because I am secure in my Lord and I know He is on the Throne.
" No power of hell, no scheme of man, can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home, here in the power of Christ I'll stand."

Nathan helping Jacob learn to skate.

Megan, you looked so sweet out there!

Racing across the ice.(Well, sort of.)

Sunday's skating party was very fun, we're hoping
to do it again this next Sunday.
