So, I have been a little behind this week. Trying to stay on top of everything.....
The above pictures are from my Valentine's flowers. The first few are in the back yard and the last are up in the snow. I had a great idea (I thought) to put the red roses against the white snow. Well, my girlie girl took my camera outside and started shooting them before I knew it. So, the pics of the roses in the snow are taken by her. Stealing my idea and my camera...ugh! She did a great job, I have to give her credit though.

Love is patient and kind,
Love is not jealous, or boastful, or proud, or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices when ever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

If you are like me, you have heard that verse over and over through out your walk. When is the last time you really meditated on it?
I know for me, it has been awhile. This is the NLT translation. It really puts it in our language. Love is not irritable. Ouch, that hurts. Keeps no records of being wronged... another ouch. I have been trying to just meditate on this scripture and really love like Jesus' loves.

A little sad this week....
Cleaning off my bookshelves and finally got rid of all of our Dr. Seuss books. They were my kids favorites for about 3 years when they were little. Every night I would read them over and over. I have them memorized!

I know some of you are thinking geeze, how long are you gonna keep them? Well, let's just say, I am very sentimental!

Good Morning...
This morning I am laying in bed and my children are downstairs making me breakfast. They tried to keep it a secret but they are just too loud. My daughter is really "making" my boy do this. He is such a pleaser... and well, she is just a little bossy. :)

Anyway, today is our wedding anniversary! 21 years! This is why she they decided to make breakfast. The cute thing is that my husband is out of town on a business trip. So, it is breakfast for me only! Sweet huh?

Anyway, here is a picture of the the sign that my daughter put up in our bedroom. Please ignore the misspelling. All you home school moms know how bad it hurts our pride when our kids misspell something. So, it is huge that I am actually taking a picture of it and announcing to the blogging world that she misspelled a word.

Many Blessings,

How precious also are Your thoughts to me O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
Psalm 139: 17 & 18
