January 8: Safety First

This definitely seems safe......
Notice where the little finger is pointing?  That's the power line that connects our home to the rest of the electrified world.  And it's completely bogged down by snow and ice and twisted up,  swaying in the wind.  Totes safe!

Everlasting peace... easy to imagine in this snowy wonderland

I thought my daily devotional was perfect for today's weather and also calming down after a crazy holiday season.  We all need to remember to bring quietness to our soul.  In that way,  God is kind of like a fresh blanket of snow on our hearts I suppose.  Btw, these pictures don't do this storm justice (a storm which is still happening! ) We measured over a foot of new powder in less than 12 hours!

And this righteousness will bring peace.  Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever. (NLT) -Isaiah 32:17

There will be a day when the Lord will bring everlasting peace. Though that time hasn't come, yet, we can still have temporary peace. Call on the Holy Spirit to bring quietness to your soul. Take time to meditate on an uplifting scripture. Get some fresh air to ease your body. Be at rest with the Lord.

A dog park adventure with my 2 favorite 4 legged buddies

January 3- Baby is Brewing

One of my best friends is having a baby and I had the honor of throwing the co ed baby shower at a brewery! There were several moments I had where I panicked that one of my favorite college buddies- esteemed drinking pal, river floating, bonfire burning, Friday night dinner friend- is having a baby and it's not an accident!  One of the moments when this was especially clear was when I looked at my Sharpie container w/ various safe sex stickers collected in my college days next to the diapers and "baby girl" table decorations.   Congratulations to one of my favorite couples! Love you guys and can't wait to meet little Baby G. :-)

Daily Devotional 1/2/15

But God gives to some the gift of marriage, and to others the gift of singleness. (NLT) -1 Corinthians 7:7 Singleness is a gift. Marriage is a gift. Paul writes that both of these statuses are gifts. Don't buy into the cultural belief that you need to be married to be happy. Nor should you view marriage as a ball and chain. If you are dissatisfied with the gift God has given you, then ask God to change your view on your status. Whether you recognize it or not, you are blessed with a gift.
