Finally...we have SNOW! I think this time, it will actually stay, too.
Yesterday we spent the morning working on Christmas-Ryley and I made a double batch of Pepparkakor cookies, Josiah made a necklace for his friend for Christmas, and Isaac and Anna were busy with projects of their own...mostly play dough. This afternoon, after a busy morning at church, we got home and the kids insisted on getting out to play right away. At last, enough snow for a snowman!!

Ryley, Josiah, Isaac and Anna...I miss you so much and can't wait to get home. I'm counting the days with you and I'll be bringing little surprises for all of you! I hope everyone is done throwing up now. Josiah, Dad said you were so tough and you took the flu "like a man". I'm so proud of you! Ryley, I'm sure you're helping the girls with everything and are comforting to Isaac and Anna when they miss me. Isaac, I know you're keeping everyone laughing when they feel sad. Anna, you are probably taking good care of all your boys. I'll see you soon!!

Sumer, with the terrific Tigris and unique Euphrates,
Egypt, with exquisite Pharaohs,
the endless Nile.
Israel, with GOD'S PERFECT WRITTEN LAW,
the hallowed temple,
and the plentiful promised land.

Our four beautiful children are definitely a "quiver full". Sometimes when the "quiver" is bursting at the seams with wrestling and pillow fights amongst piles and piles of Legos, I wonder at these little "blessings". Then in the quiet, tender one-on-one moments, my eyes well up with tears and the lump in my throat prevents me from speaking.
What did I do to deserve this? Absolutely nothing. That is the beauty of my Jesus.
