Sun for 2 days..

And what a beautiful 2 days they were. Seems as though spring has come and gone in these parts,  today it's 15 cm of the white stuff and some crazy wind. Both yesterday and the day before, the kids dug out their bikes and we went for a stroll to the end of the road and was soooo wonderful!

So far March break has been pretty quiet and just a wonderfully mundane week of regular ol' life. We'll be enjoying a day in beamsville on Friday to visit cousins and aunts and thankfully the weather is looking like it'll be in the positives again!

Here's one from a couple years ago, Wasn't that a beautiful morning shot?

Eternal weight of Glory

This morning I sit in peace, light slowly rising through the windows and read this,

'So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.' 2 Corinthians 4:16

It's verses like that, that make my heart skip a beat in anticipation...

G'mornin mom and Christin!

My two devoted followers whom have both mentioned its time to blog something new again ;) and so here I sit with my new (woo!) iPad and thought I'd write a little post for y'all.

The children and I have decided it would do us a great deal of good to observe lent this year. For several reasons, the most important of course being the desire to strip all things bare and fully re-focus on Christ. So, seeing as the hubs and I have already given up on sugar, salt, caffeine, and processed foods in general, I decided my observance of lent would not giving up another thing (to be  honest I wasn't sure what else there was!) but instead to make a priority of Christ in my life. Instead of getting up and hopping on my computer..or iPad as the case may be... I would instead pick up the  Word and begin my day with Him. The kids decided to give up tv during the day, so no more netflix during school time...I was thrilled when they decided in this one...yes I could have told them to just  do that, but was thankful when it came from them, their decision.

Do we have a problem with TV during the day, no, but there are times when I'm tired and should say no more than I here we go! Bring in the books ...even more!

Today I read this verse and it'll stick a with me as I go about my day today, maybe for you too!

' For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life.' 2 Corinthians 2:15
