"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

We've been enjoying a nice mild winter here in Colorado and have been teased with spring like temps. I have been dreaming of planting trees, shrubs, flowers and herbs in the yard of our new home. However late this afternoon I once again realized that we are still very much in the middle of winter. We had quite a bit of snow and it was different from our usual white stuff in that it was what we can "Sierra Sludge" because there is so much moisture in the snow. Here in Colorado we get dry snow but not today; in fact we ran across the street to our daughter's house and couldn't believe how big the snowflakes were that were coming down. The kiddo's loved it as did their dog and spent a bit of time playing outside in it. Our winter here has been what the locals call normal but it is so different than last year. No matter how much or how long we newbies still love the snow. But come March and April I'll be wanting to get out in the yard and make it look like home.
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 37 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 38 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
