Welcome to Minnesota
It is hard to believe that it was 52 degrees, sunny and warm as spring today when it was -20 degrees only a few weeks ago. I am so anxious for spring... We have truly had a Minnesota winter. Only two days (Jan. 2nd and today) were above freezing. Wow. Tonight I am going to be a slug. That is my new word for describing myself on Saturdays and Sundays. Actually, I wasn't really a slug today. I helped my dad outside and just soaked up the warm sunshine. I also took my dog for a walk around the pond in our neighborhood, made cookies, and just smiled at the warmth of it all. I'm a little jealous of my Mamo and Papa who are in California and Granny and Grandpa who are in Mexico. I can hardly wait for them all to get back and share the pictures and stories from their travels. Please keep a friend of mine in your prayers. I am not going to give you names or details, just pray that she gets through this tough time and that I am able to reach out and assist in any way possible. I just finished the front side of a quilt that I hope to finish later this week. In February, my sisters and I are going to Mamo and Papa's for a week of sewing and woodshop-ing. It's gonna be a ton of fun. I should go help my sisters with dinner. See ya! Kaye Ann But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest upon me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weakness, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 PS: no pictures yet, but there will be soon! Thanks!
