Today we have snow! And cold temperatures. I've lived in Michigan my entire life and can't imagine living elsewhere. It is a chilly 29 out right now. Yesterday we got our first real snow of the year. We actually had to plow (and salt). There are a few areas without power, but mostly it's just cold outside. I think we got about 4" total, not to bad. They made it sound like it was going to be a lot worse than it was, but don't they allways. Well enough about the weather.
Like I said in my intro. we have 3 kids. Ages from 1 yr to 6 yrs old. 2 boys and 1 girl. I love being a mom, watching them learn is such a thrill. The 2 oldest are getting old enough to help out more, so that helps with the sanity! We homeschool them as well. They love school and learning, books, it's great being able to teach them. I come from a strong homeschooling family. We have lots of support, which is very helpful. Even if I didn't have the support I would still homeschool. I allways imagined it that way!
We have church with just a few. There's about 12 of us, all family, but that's not whats important. We used to be more, but people aren't interested in digging in the Bible for themselves, and when they do, they don't allways find what they want to see. So one by one, they left, choosing their own paths. But that's their choice, that's between them and God. We just pray that they make wise choices in their lives.
I'm not that old yet (at 29 I like to think so anyways), but we've been thru alot. The Lord has allways protected us, and for that we are very greatful. There have been many times he has put his hand out and protected us. It is without a doubt that I can say, he watches over us and answers prayer. Thru death of family, car accidents, child birth, real hardship, he's allways been there for me. Maybe I'll expound on them some other time.
I want to add a few of my favorite sites. I'll try to find a place on the side to post them, but for now, here they are.
http://eveninglight.org/ they now have a web radio as well. Great music you can't buy! No "chrisitan Rock" Wonderful messages of truth available to listen to as well.
http://www.e-sword.net/index.html Download a study Bible for free. You can add different translations and helps as well. It has the Strongs Concordance too. Love it!
http://www.starfall.com/ My kids love playing the "games" on here. And they are learning at the same time. What a great tool.
http://earth.google.com/ Download the earth onto your computer. It's free and you can see in depth different places around the world. It's kinda scary that they get that close, but neat to be able to see the Alaskan mountains and the Norwegian cities. Very neat tool.
Well that's it for now. Hop in if you have a comment. No debating, but honest questions are more than welcome.
