The Blessing of the Lord's Day....

Today we started out for church.....Daddy and I waited patiently in the van for Darb....patiently....patiently...and here she came. And off we went.....into a snow drift...in the circle drive. Yep....stuck in our own driveway. Yesterday the girls and I went shopping to KC and Daddy specifically said..."Don't use the circle drive!" I didn't! Today I think he forgot! So I had to jump out in my high heels into a 18" snow drift and get back to the house. I think I'm going to leave the story there and leave you with photos....(Sometimes it's best if the wife just remains silent!)









Oh, but church was wonderful and as always God is good. We sang, we prayed, we worshipped, we studied, we listened, we learned. Today was a guest speaker and he is one of my favorites. Brother John spoke on "Conscience". I am always intrigued by this topic and so to listen to his thoughts and words from the Bible were excellent. He said we all have a conscience....I agree. Your conscience is affected based on what your spiritual beliefs are.  There are many verses on it and I'm going to do more study on it. One of our songs today was "Jesus is Lord"....beautiful "faith" speaking song!




Jesus Is Lord


Jesus is Lord,
My Redeemer.
How He loves me,
How I love Him.
He is risen,
He is coming.
Lord come quickly,
Hallelujah!

What a friend we

Have in Jesus,
All our sins and
Griefs to bear.
What a privilege to carry
Everything to
God in prayer.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah,
Lord come quickly, Hallelujah.
Super Bowl is getting ready and although I like football, I'm extremely happy to just be in the comfort of my family room with a fire and my family and some yummy snacks. I'm not caring too much who wins!

Snow is coming our way again come Tuesday...not predicted to be the SNOW BLIZZARD we had last week...but a possible few inches. Here is what we are still looking at out our back door!




I believe my dryer has an issue that is going to have to be dealt with come Monday. It is making a very unfamiliar/unhealthy noise. So due to that fact, the washer is sitting idle too. Who wants a load of wet clothes to have to string all over the house to try to dry. I'm hoping my appliance man (who unfortunately is way too familiar with working on my appliances!) will have small and cheap repairs to make on it. 
Hope you had a great weekend and a restful one and a warm one. Valentine's Day is coming soon....are you thinking about something special for your Sweetheart yet?

These are the verses we studied today in our Adult class at church:
  
Galatians 6
 1Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
 2Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
 3For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
 4But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
 5For every man shall bear his own burden.

I take it you managed to free your ride in time for church...what a morning. Satan will try anything to keep us from hearing a good Word. I am glad you made it to church to hear the message. Blessings and be careful out there!

Oh wow, you've had a lot of snow! I'm glad you were able to make it to church and worship :-)
I hope you're able to get your dryer fixed. Our appliances seem to break down in spurts. It's like one goes out and it tells the rest to do the same :-)
Blessings,
Marcia
