Today my husband and I are praying for a friend who has been diagnosed with colon cancer! He and his wife were so appreciative of us coming to the hospital to pray for them. I am thankful that we can cry to our Lord for help and He answers!

The first day of our Ladies Bible study was last Tuesday. I am so glad to be studying grace with 18 other ladies from my church. It all began like this: A friend asked me many times to please do a study by Kay Arthur. I had led some by her in the past but had not recently. One Sunday she gave me the devotional book, Lord, I Need Grace to Make it Today as a birthday gift. She tells me she wants me to do this devotional study. I know in her mind she is thinking if I do it, I will lead it. It laid on my desk unopened for several weeks. One Sunday she asked me if I had started the book. I wanted to say YES, but that was not the truth, so I blurted out, "no, not yet, but I will". I went home and picked up the book and thought I owed it to her to do it. Afterall she had taken the time to buy it and give it to me and then even check on me to see if I had started it. I opened up the book and as I began to read I realized it was exactly what I needed. Little did I know at time that the Lord would actually be wanting me to lead this as a Bible study at our church. It wasn't too many days after I started it that a stirring began in my heart. Then my Ladies Bible study leader called asking me if I had anything in mind to lead. Nothing came to my mind except this devotional study. I am excited to be studying grace. It is a word we use often but I am sure I do not know the depths of the meaning of this word as pertaining to God's grace and living a life in the grace of God. How about you? Are you in a Bible study or beginning one soon?

Who doesn't like a new recipe that tastes good? My daughter Stacy and her husband both enjoy cooking. She posted a new recipe she recently tried on her blog. She said it tasted GOOD! I am looking forward to trying it. I hope you will visit her blog and see if it is something you would like! Sweeter Things

It is so unusual for us to have more than one or two days of ice and/or snow and some years we don't get either! We have had ice and now snow for 4 days. The temperature is finally higher than the 12-18 degrees it has been. I think I heard on the news that the last time we had weather like this was in '96. Wanted to share some pretty snow pictures!
