This is an old draft I was working on back in 2009 when I first started blogging. Hannah, my youngest daughter, took these photos. She is a good shot!
I am way behind my on Warm Heart Wednesday but I had to share. I found these 2009 snow pictures that Hannah ran outside and snapped for me. Gosh, we had a lot of snow back then. We have had some snow lately but more cold temps than anything. So I am grateful that I have a roof over my head and heat and water. Are you praying for Oklahoma and Texas and other areas of the country? They were hit by some brutal storms and many lost power. I spend a lot of time in prayer. Yesterday I shared a prayer request with many friends regarding Ryan, a young man who has been friends with my girls Rebekah and Hannah for a long time. A few years ago Ryan joined the U.S. Navy like his older brother. During basic training he contracted spinal meningitis and of course, the government cut him loose. He was in very bad shape and he miraculously survived. This past summer, he jumped off the side of a cliff into deep water that had a shallow area. Although he broke his back, he was not paralyzed. Last night he took a turn for the worst and his brother Nathan said it had something to do with his lungs. Although he is getting dialysis his lungs have cleared up and he is doing really well. Ryan is sort of like a cat with nine lives. He has cheated death a few times before. I have a warm heart that so many good hearts prayed for him and he is doing so much better today! Thank you. Please visit Ms. Jenny and everyone at Warm Heart Wednesday too.
Lots of violence everywhere we turn today. My answer is to continue to pray without ceasing. I know who is in charge. Apparently gun free zones are not working either! I don't like to hash over this stuff here but we do need to acknowledge it otherwise we bury our heads in the sand. I like to pray for the families of loved ones lost, loved one hurting and recovering from their injuries and pray that our law enforcement was able to step in and do their job.
