Every time you feel in God's creatures something pleasing and attractive, do not let your attention be arrested by them alone, but, passing them by, transfer your thought to God and say: "O my God, if Thy creations are so full of beauty, delight and joy, how infinitely more full of beauty, delight and joy art Thou Thyself, Creator of all!
- Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain

You can’t get to joy by making everything perfect. You can only get there by seeing in every imperfection all that’s joy.

Winter Fun!!

Sweet Dani Jo, 3 yrs, out on ski's for the first time

Hey everyone! I thought I'd do a quick post, but it's already taken me an hour just to put the pictures on. I have to get high speed! I needed a campaign that would work with my husband, but couldn't think of one...until dear Dan got a GPS for Christmas! The download he needs takes 3 1/2 hours without high speed. It won't even work because it takes so long that the server resets right in the middle of it. Maybe now I have a chance! Let's hope so!

Any way, now that the pictures took an hour to upload, my time is about up. I hope all of your Christmas's were blessed with joy in Jesus and His GIFT, as well as the gift of family and love. Our was, but it was also cursed with the stomach flu. Dan and Sam spent Christmas day sleeping. But, we feel so blessed any way! God is so good!! Enjoy the winter! For those of you who don't get a white Christmas, maybe seeing my pictures will help you feel better. Rest assured, in my opinion sometimes it's better to watch other people having fun in the snow than to do it yourself! IT'S COLD!! But I have to admit, beautiful as well.
