Let me tell you about my day because it was really wonderful and rewarding. First off, I went to Bible Study Fellowship and we studied John 13. Our Amazing, Majestic, Powerful, Almighty God, Creator of the entire universe became a servant and washed His disciples dirty, stinky feet. He was the ultimate example of what a true servant is, loving and humble. It truly amazes me that He loved and showed no partiality to the man who would betray Him. What a God I serve!
Before I get into the last part of my day, I must apologize because what I did was done with a motive. Nevertheless, I got to practice what I learned. John and I were able to help today at Food at First. We prepared a meal for homeless people in our town. It was also great getting to know people in our community that serve daily as volunteers with no expectation of getting anything in return. Thank you Candy and Barb! This is an awesome program that Disney is putting on. Not only is it a great opportunity to volunteer in your community, but you also get a FREE ticket to Disney attractions for helping. I was truly blessed by this ministry and the people who diligently serve. Hopefully I'll be able to help out on a more regular basis with no expectation.

In my opinion, this happens to be one of the toughest winter months every year. I really get antsy and ready for Spring to arrive. Turning 30 at the end of January, feeling completely OUT OF SHAPE, and many more weeks of winter still to come haven't helped. Nevertheless, I am oh so grateful for many, many things. All this gorgeous snow makes the long, dead winter months picturesque and more interesting. I thank the Lord for wonderful family and friends near and far. My two little ones overwhelm me with unbiased love and adoration, whether I deserve it or not. Attending Bible Study Fellowship and a new study in James has been such an encouragement. Good health so far this winter. These may sound so trivial and minor, but I truly am thankful for each.

I'm also blessed by my wonderful sisters/sis-in-laws...even though this picture excludes most of them. There is nothing quite like a sis.
