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.

Brrrr! it's COLD Outside!

You know it's cold when you are sitting right next to the woodstove and you are still freezing:)

This morning it was -2 when we took the kids to school just before 8. It was still only 6 degrees at 11 AM. But it did warm up to 25, of course with the wind chill it was -5. Now we are back down to 18 and cooling fast.

Las Vegas is getting hammered with snow right now. We are far enough north that we are getting zip, zilch, nada! We got about an inch Monday.

It looks like we will be driving in snow most of the way to Washington. Bummer. It will be pretty but not fun.

Here's a picture of what little snow we did get. Nothing spectacular!

You may even have snow once you get here! Sounds like we are in for a cold couple of weeks! We were off from school today - though we really didn't need to be. You know how the schools are here about a little bit of snow! At least they have padded the calendar with some make-up days. We haven't hit the minuses like you have... it has been in the teens though! Brrrrr!
