Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of hail,

Psalms 51:1 Have mercy upon me,
O God, according to thy lovingkindness:
according unto the multitude of thy tender
mercies blot out my transgressions.

2. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse
me from my sin.
3. For I acknowledge my transgression: and my sin is
ever before me.

4. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this
evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when
thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in
sin did my mother conceive me.
6. Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward
parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make
me to know wisdom.

7. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be
clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8. Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones
which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot
out all mine iniquities.
10. Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a
right spirit within me.

11. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not
thy holy spirit from me.

12. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold
me with thy free spirit.
13. Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners
shall be converted unto thee.

Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us
reason together, saith the LORD: though
your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white
as snow; though they be red like crimson, they
shall be as wool.

Bbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I Wonder as I Wander

Here's to you Lydia! I know you like this song, or at least
to say the words every now and then. :~)

I know a lot of you all round here don't like this cold time
of year we have up here in the north. But I do. I like to go out
and see the snow blowing all around, and get cold for a little
bit. Yes I do like coming in to a nice warm house and get dry,
but it's still fun every now and then to go out in. :)

I wonder as I wander, out under the sky,
How Jesus the Savior did come for to die For poor,
orn'ry people like you and like I;
I wonder as I wander, out under the sky.

When Mary birthed Jesus, 'twas in a cow's stall,
With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all.
But high from God's heaven a star's light did fall,
The promise of ages it then did recall.

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing,
A star in the sky or a bird on the wing,
Or all of God's angels in heav'n for to sing,
He surely could have it, 'cause He was King.

Just One More Idea For The Snow :~>

This is just to get you to laugh, not to make you made at me. :^)

One Small Child

One small Child in a land of a thousand,
One small dream of a Savior tonight,
One small hand reaching out to the starlight,
One small city of life.

One king bringing his gold and riches,
One king ruling an army of might,
One king kneeling with incense and candle light,
One King bringing us life.
See Him lying, a cradle beneath Him,
See Him smiling in the stall.
See His mother praising His Father,
See His tiny eyelids fall.

One small light from the flame of a candle,
One small light from a city of might,
One small light from the stars in the endless night,
One small light from a face.
See the shepherds kneeling before Him,
See the kings on bended knee.
See His mother praising His Father,
See the Blessed Infant sleep.

One small Child in a land of a thousand,
One small dream in a people of might,
One small hand reaching out to the starlight,
One small Savior of life.

Sorry to all of you that have been waiting for pix of the wedding, I don't know yet which ones I might put on, we'll just have to wait and see. :)

As You All Must Know, It Is Time For, Dare I Say The Word...SNOW.

If I might ask of you all to pray for Brad, Jessica, and their
youth group, they were on there way home from the
Creation Museum in Kentucky, and they didn't make it any
farther then Lima (where ever that is), but the snow was so
bad I don't think they are coming home tonight, so pray that
the roads will be better tomorrow.
(:We have the kids so pray for us too:)

Our Flag, Is It Worth Fighting For???

This is just one of the many pix Dad got when he was in D.C.
I might share more later, but here is this one for now.

If you would like to read what all this says then you can go to this site,
also if you would read the poem at the end, and think if that's what the
flag has to say, what do you think God would have to say. Do we show Him
the honor He should be getting from us???

This is a story I found that I thought was funny, let me know what you all think

AT LEAST there was a wood stove in the kitchen! That constituted about the only thing I could feel fortunate about on the night of my "Age Fast" episode.

First of all (does this sound familiar?), my husband was away. Second, a surprise snowstorm had sprung up. And,third, the power had gone out.

Actually, for a little while, the situation didn't seen so daunting. While I was new to farming, I did know how to start a fire in the old range.

I quickly decided I should check on the animals. With the night bitter cold and the wind biting, I bundled myself up.Then I dashed to the barn.

The sow supplied my first shock---six newborn piglets were huddled close to her side for warmth. If I didn't do something to provide them more heat, they'd never make it to morning.

So I lined a box with straw, packed all six babies in and staggered back to the kitchen with it in my arms. Snug beside the stove, they fell fast asleep.

Remembering our milk cow was due to calve any day, I hurried back to the barn. Sure enough, I found her nursing a new baby. I gave a gasp of pleasure----then groaned when I spotted a smaller calf abandoned in the straw. Twins!

There was nothing for me to do but take this baby, too, to warm kitchen, where it soon was stretched out on a blanket in front of the stove.

By now, my hands were numb. But, as I held them to the fire, it occurred to me it had been a while since I'd seen our St. Bernard---who, you probably have already guessed, was expecting.

Another trek into the cold revealed her to be in one of the barn's remote corners, crouched over four trembling puppies. Up into my coat went the newborns; Mama trotted along behind as I raced them back to the house. There, I gave them a blanket and sheltered spot under the table.

But wait...where was the cat? Yes, she was also going to have babies, although they weren't supposed to arrive for several weeks. That didn't matter on this night---there she was, in a closet, curled around her new litter.

Running out of room, I dug out an old suitcase, lined it with a fuzzy sweater and let cat and kittens take up residence there in another kitchen corner.

Suddenly, it dawned on me that the chicken house had a problem as well. Without power, there was no heat lamp for the chicks. Again, I rushed outside, toting a laundry basket. I scooped the chicks up into it and stumbled with my cheeping load homeward.

When I pushed the door open, my eyes were met by sheer bedlam:

The cat had transferred her kittens into the kitchen sink. She was standing guard over them, hissing and spitting.

All six piglets had escaped their box. They were sprinting around the room, squealing and driving the dog under the table into a barking frenzy.

The calf had struggled to its feet... in the process, knocking over several chairs. It was bawling for mother.

Days later, my husband finally arrived home. Proudly, I related how I'd saved many of our animals from certain death during the storm.

"Honey," he grinned, "didn't you know we have a generator in the barn for emergencies like that?"

Well, no... I didn't. And it's added a lot of mirth to his life over the years. He still shakes with laughter retelling how his wife lived out Rescue 911 instead of pushing a button in the barn.

This Is What Happens When I Stick My Head Up The Chimney

Think I'll try out for a part in Mary Poppins. :)

Chim-Chim-e-ney, Chim-Chim-e-ney...

Hehehe!!! I went to see what my Mom would say, and she said "how old are you?!" :)

Dad just laughed, and said "why?!" :) Oh and he said I wouldn't make a good black person. :D

Now you should ask your Mom and Dad first if you are thinking about doing this, I still have it on my face so I don't know how it will come off. I think I'm going to go see if I can get it off, other wise I get to have it on for church tomorrow, (that would be fun!!!)but Mom said "no"!!! :) Oh well. :( hehehe!!!

She Who Does NOT Sit Still

Faith as Raggedy Ann :)

I liked this one, and what the flash did.

She sat down many times, and just as I was going to get the pic she would stand up and it would cut her head off. :~}

I like the tri' in this one.
It's just too bad she wasn't in a good mood.
Oh well she is still cute. :)

Lord Let Us Not Be As This Tree

And now also the ax is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Matthew 3:10
