Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Blessings in disguise

We have lived here in Colorado for two years, so we decided it was about time that we took the kids skiing.  One off our kiddos has no interest in such things (Beti), so we made arrangements for her to spend the night and the next day with a friend. We headed out early in the morning with four very excited kids!

We arrived at Monarch Mountain, checked in, got our gear and dropped the kids of at ski school.  Bob and I hit the slopes for the first time in 20+ years.  We were pretty impressed with ourselves that we got on and off the lift without falling. It was such a beautiful day and a wonderful thrill to ski again. That was until I had a "yard sale" on the slope! I wiped out good! Or bad?  As it turns out, I ruptured my ACL.  The kids had a great time skiing. They can't wait to go back. I, on the other hand, will have surgery on April 28th and rehab the dickens out of my knee and be ready to get out there again next season.

The blessing? It has forced one of our littles to branch out a bit, be flexible and handle change.  Blessings

Blogging on the go

So, on a whim, I checked the play store and sho'nuf, there's a blogspot app! So, here goes. My first mobile upload... along with a random selfie.
