And He said unto me, "My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
2 Corinthians 12:9

Baby, It's Cold Outside!!

First, we are celebrating that today (yes, today) is the 7th Anniversary of the Day the docs told us that B was cancer FREE!!!  Praise the Lord!  We continue to rejoice in HIS healing!

Second, we are celebrating that we have power and we are safe amidst all of the crazy storms coming through our area.

We woke up Friday morning with no power in the house.

Tree #1 broken and blocking part of the driveway.

Tree #2 on B's truck (frozen to his truck & broken on top of it).

Tree #3 broken...

Tree #4 broken...are we seeing a theme here?

Tree # 5 broken and resting on our neighbors' fence.

There's the nasty break.

Tree #6...


American Flag frozen solid.
B went and found a few pieces of wood that we could use to light the fire. Then, our neighbor found out we didn't have firewood and all of our town was sold out.  He went and found scrap lumber and chopped it up for us and then dropped it on our back porch for us as a gift.  So sweet!

P's pics of the fireplace that kept us warm most of the day.
The darker it became, the more we were realizing we were not going to have power.  So, we finally packed up the car, the pups, the kiddo, and sweet Miss C, and we all went to Mom's house to spend the night.

Other trees throughout our neighborhood.

We spent the night with Mom and had a great time with her.  Then, we headed home the next morning...

Pics of our town on the way back home the next day.

P taking photos once we returned home the next day!

 It has been a crazy 3+ days, but we are grateful that we are all safe.
