A movie of the snow

I've never posted a video before, so I'm going to try posting one now. Let me know if you can view it. It is a .mov file. Here goes:

This is my loving hubby pulling my sweet little son around our backyard, using his lawn tractor. After that, we went in, made a fire in the firplace, and drank hot cocoa together! Stay warm everyone!

Snow in Cackalackie

Here's a few pictures from a rare Carolina snowstorm. While our new president [who is younger than me by the way] was being inaugurated, NO ONE in Eastern NC was at work or school! We got about 4" of snow. In fact, they've already cancelled school for tomorrow!

This is our house. It is hardly ever covered with snow!
Here is my angel making an angel!!!
Sledding in the front yard!
Sledding in the back yard with Dad.
Anyway, we had a lovely day. Went in, made a fire in the fireplace, and drank cocoa after all that!

For such a time as this...

That is one of my favorite phrases from the Bible. I use it frequently when I see God's hand in something and how He works stuff out, etc. Well, of course, that is a central phrase in the book of Esther.

We [various blog buddies and I] have been talking about getting more into the Word this year. I LOVE God's Word. It excites me!!! BUT, do I read and study and meditate on it like I should? Well...[ahem] not always. I have lately really been craving MEAT from the Word. Last fall, our ladies group did a Beth Moore Bible study on the Psalms of Degrees and it was AWESOME.
Do you want to hear Moore? We just started the study on Esther today. Yes, it is a Beth Moore study, hence the play on words above. I go to a big church and the Bible study is given 3 times a day 6am, 9am, and 7pm. I usually go to the 7pm one, but tonight I have to be somewhere else so I went to the 6am one. This study is going to be a great one too! We started by getting the whole ladies group together last Friday evening to watch 'One Night With the King', which is a movie based on the book of Esther. So, I am EXCITED about this study and diving deeper into the treasures of God's Word.
Course, I have the Veggie Tales version of Esther where she is a green onion and Mordechai is played by Pa Grape. Yes, I AM that hopeless...
Where has God been leading you in His Word?

Deep Philosophy Here!!!

GAMES FOR WHEN WE ARE OLDER:
1. Sag, you're It.
2. Hide and go pee.
3. 20 questions shouted into your good ear.
4. Kick the bucket
5. Red Rover, Red Rover, the nurse says Bend Over.
6. Musical recliners.
7. Simon says something incoherent.
8. Pin the Toupee on the bald guy

SIGNS OF MENOPAUSE :
1. You sell your home heating system at a yard sale.
2. You have to write post-it notes with your kids' names on them.
3. You change your underwear after a sneeze.

OLD IS WHEN:
1. Going bra-less pulls all the wrinkles out of your face.
2. You don't care where your spouse goes, just as long as you don't have to go along.
3. Getting a little action means I don't need fiber today.
4. Getting lucky means you find your car in the parking lot.
5. An all-nighter means not getting up to pee!

Thoughts for the weekend:
-Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press 'Ctr Alt Delete' and start all over?
-If raising children was going to be easy, it never would have started with something called labor!
-Brain cells come and brain cells go, but fat cells live forever.

Ponderisms:
-I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
-Garden Rule: When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
-The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.
-Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.
-Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?
-n the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.
-How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
-Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here and drink whatever comes out?'
-Who was the first person to say, 'See that chicken there? I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta its butt.'
-If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?
-Why does your OB-GYN leave the room when you get undressed if he's going to look up there anyway?
-Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

But Most Of All, Remember:
A Good Friend Is Like A Good Bra. Hard to Find, Supportive, Comfortable, And Always Close To Your Heart

Happy New Year, Good Friends!!!

Food for thought - Happy New Year Everyone!
