Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

First Snow

Well, it didn't snow much yesterday. I say "much" because it certainly tried. Butch and I helped with concessions at the football game and it was sort of snowing when we got there but the wind was blowing so hard the snow wasn't really landing anywhere.

It was extremely cold though. When we went to the game at 6:00 it was 33 degrees and with the wind chill it was probably about 20. I was sure glad I was inside the concession stand, not that it helped much. There is no heat but at least it blocked the wind, a little. We sold about 170 cups of hot chocolate and coffee, and there wasnt even that many people at the game:)
Today it has been making attempts to snow off and on all day. There was a Junior High Volleyball tournament today that we helped with and when we went this morning there were some very dark clouds just north of us. We hadn't been there long when people started talking about it snowing. We saw a lot of cars that had driven in from other areas for the tourney with a lot of snow on them.

When we got home there was just a tiny bit on the deck. At one point it was coming down pretty good but it is pretty dry snow and didn't give me anything to take a picture of. However, we've gotten a good dusting in the mountains. Take a look.......
Notice the flag...yes, the wind is blowing , not quite as hard as last night though:)
