In "hope against hope," I wait Lord,
Faced by some fast-barred gate, Lord
Hope never says "Too late," Lord,
Therefore in Thee I hope!

Hope though the night be long, Lord,
Hope of a glowing dawn, Lord, 
Morning must break in song, Lord,
For we are "saved by hope."

Expressions by Nicole

I would like to give a shout out for my sister.  My sister, Nicole, is incredibly talented.  I could go on and on telling you how amazing my 4.0 sister is.  Yes, she has a 4.0 GPA...  And if you're wondering if it gets a little annoying at ya it does.  But wait a minute, I am suppose to be giving a shout out here.  My sister is pretty incredible.  She started this Etsy Shop not too long ago:

You must check it out... She designs beautiful jewelry, bookmarks, and key chains, and all for great prices!  They make wonderful gifts for women of all ages. 
 And might I add, it is definitely a plus having her for a sister.  I get bracelets, necklaces, and earrings for every holiday.
 Looking forward to St. Patrick's Day! ;)

Ronald Reagan

Happy 100th Birthday President Ronald Reagan
"Freedom is never more than one generation away form extinction.  We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." 

 "Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face."
 "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
 "Government's first duty is protect the people, not run their lives."

 "Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged."

 "There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers.  We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right." 

America, misses you!

Snow Day!!!

 I woke up this morning to this beautiful view.  It felt absolutely wonderful to sleep in (I didn't even set my alarm), and wake up with out a care in the world.  All schools were cancelled in our area.  So- being a preschool teacher that brought me great joy!  I love my job and my kids, but I think it is best for the both me and kids- if I get a break every once in a while...:)

 By 9:00 this morning we had approximately 25 inches of snow

 My sisters, dad, and I got on our snow gear and headed out to shovel the driveway.  

We came back in to the house and had a late breakfast consisting of pancakes, scrabbles eggs, and potatoes. 

Now, the day is drawing to an end.  The snow is still gently falling down.  The yard stick in the front yard is almost completely covered.  And I just received a text saying the school are closed again tomorrow.  I simply have to smile to myself and say, I love snow blizzards!
