Hello everyone. I have been fighting a cold for the last week and that is why I haven’t written a blog post since May 16th. My wife had the cold first, then my son, and now me. On top of that, our daughter got strep and needed antibiotics. I have been taking care of the kids for the last couple weeks. My wife and kids are much better now and they are back to school. This is the last week of school before summer break…and it’s snowing again. This is Colorado in late spring. The beauty of living next to the Rockies also brings some crazy weather. We are sick of being sick and we are really ready for summer!
I appreciate your prayers. This has been the worst winter we have had in a very long time. Our family was literally sick about every two weeks since Christmas. It has been a very long winter and I am tired. The coughing is driving me nuts and I have lost my appetite, which isn’t good when you only weigh around 135 pounds from Celiac. I cry out to God daily, moment by moment, and cling to Him. That’s all I can do. His grace has been, will be, and is sufficient for me.
I took the above photo yesterday when it started snowing. Here is another one:
You can see that everything is green and the leaves are coming back. I have already mowed the lawn several times and I was going to do it yesterday, but it didn’t stop snowing. This is what we woke up to this morning:
So much for mowing the lawn! Our poor Service berry tree is sagging bad. It is tough though and it will bounce back. Just like a Christian with the armor of God on. We might get beat down, but you better believe we are getting back up!
The little Colorado sparrows are tough too. They are used to this. They love to sit at the top of our maple tree. They also like to play in the pine trees under the snow covered branches. It looks like they are having fun out there! They hop around inside the pine trees chasing each other from branch to branch. Cute little birds.
I will be resting for a bit this week. Hopefully all of this snow will be gone for the last day of school this Friday. I am so glad summer break is just a few days away! We are really looking forward to going to California in July! The kids are pumped up to check out the new Star Wars land called “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” at Disneyland. They are also excited about the pool at the house we rented. I am ready for palm trees, the ocean, and hot weather! Just not too hot while we are walking around Disneyland for three days. I also had the chance to share Christ the last couple times we went to Cali, so I am always ready for the Lord to move in power (on the plane and on the ground). There are no vacations from spreading the Gospel and there are a lot of people in Cali that need to hear God’s soul saving Truth, that’s for sure!
I will be back to writing more regularly as soon as I feel better. In the meantime, I will still be answering comments and emails. I will also be praying for God to bless us with summer. Coloradoans are just done with winter. We’re done, over it, bye bye, don’t come back for a real long time, like at least until November. I mean really, it is 32 degrees today and it’s almost June! Crazy Rocky Mountain weather. Just like Olaf, we love summer too!
That’s all for today, but before I go, always remember this soul saving Truth:
“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
If you want to be saved, then put your faith in Jesus and He will save you! That is the powerful love of God who loves you more than you can imagine!
Grace and peace to you all!
