“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

Welcome to Portland, Oregon
Just South of the North Pole!

No, I am not kidding.

We woke up to a fresh blanket of snow.

Global warming?

Caleb keeps asking me if it's going to snow. I think it is going to be in the 70s here today.

So glad you made it home and I will pray for Christopher as well. Thank you for the Barnes and Noble Card. Happy New Year my sweet friend.

Beautiful. We'll be wearing shorts tomorrow. What a crazy couple of weeks you've had.

So, how did you like the snow this morning?? I almost cried, since I've only been out of my garage since Sunday!!

I will be praying for Christopher--that is so scary--not knowing. I am trusting, with you, that there will be no ill effects from this untimely run-in with a tick.

Glad you made it safely back to the snow!! I think flooding is going to be a problem. My grandson, just south of Salem, says they are gearing up for sandbags for around their doors--its not there yet, but is rising.

I will keep Christopher close in my prayers, as well as praying for peace for you and his Dad.
One of my favorite nephews is named Christopher--in fact I posted about him today, but didn't use his name due to his work.

As usualy, I had trouble being concise with my comments.

Take care....and keep us updated!


Brrr...it is so beautiful to me but I know enough is enough already!!!
Hope Christopher is doing well!!
Global warming indeed!

That is beautiful. I would love to have at least a few days of cold weather here in Alabama. Snow is only a dream!

I am still chuckling over that quick inch this past Sunday.
