Let it snow!!


there is just something about the first real snowfall of the winter (we had about 2+ inches today and they are calling for more!). its refreshing!! Especially in windsor, where this will pretty much be the only time i will actually see the snow as white; it will soon get brown and mushy and melt...probably within the next few days! last year windsor had record snowfall and it was nothing compared to up north! i actually miss the snow while i am down here. we decorated our house for Christmas a few weeks ago, but now with the snow it seems more like Chritsmas season!! i cannot wait to get home for a break!!
it has been a while since a wrote in this thing. i have been crazy-busy but i guess that should not be an excuse...lol, never mind i think it is a valid excuse especially in my program! School has been ok. i am starting into practicals...so its a little high stress. i have two more to go (next week - hematology and transfusion science) and then the week after is all the finals. it's gone by really fast!!
things at 'the house' have been great! i love my girls!! ;) Michelle actually biked today and got caught in the snow on the way home - yucky! so i think we are finally getting rides offically (unless of course windsor has the inevidable thaw and we may bike again!lol) Jen just got back from Nashville last night! she went to a youth-workers conference with her church - and came back with a nose-ring!! i am such a bad influence eh!? i will have to post a pic of the two of us with our pretty li'l noses! And now we are trying to talk Michelle into getting one too...we'll see if that works!! ;) i am getting super excited about my own trip to Nashville!! I am going from Jan.1-5 for the "Passion" conferences...its a huge college-aged people gathering with speakers and music and a chance for fellowship and encouragment! ...John Piper will be one of the speakers - i'm excited!!
A HUGE congratulations to Shawn and Hailey on their new addition - Olivia!!! .... and to the Sabines as well!! Both Olivia and Lydia arrived on the same day! New babies are so exciting!! i hope and pray both families are well!
fresh snow and new babies...how fun! Reminds me of Christmas... :)... and the reason why we celebrate it!
"Have the attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in the appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus Every knee will bow, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:5-11)

alright all...have a fantastic evening! (and Jessi, if you would have a little patience with me...i am new at this thing:)...miss you hon!)

Romans 11:35-36 "Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to him again? For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen."

Hilsy,
I guess it's time you were a bad influence on me, since I've had over a year to be a bad influence on you! You're just catching up! Love the blog and I LOVE living with you, my precious sister & friend!
Love,
Jen
