This past weekend we were in Virginia with our friends Aaron and Becky Stoltzfus. It rained most of the time but we had fun anyway playing games and hanging out on the farm. It does me good to get away from the daily routine of home.
There's not much new happening right now other than I am so ready for spring and warmer weather so I can get outside during the day. All in all I can say God is good.
I posted some pictures of Aaron's barn and his miniture horses that he is so proud of.

In Like a Lion

Well here it is March already and the snow is coming down hard and fast. Tonight the temperature will be a balmy 11 degrees. Brrr!
Today is my wife's birthday! I wish her the best and pray her day will be special for her. I am so blessed to have her for my wife and mother to my two awesome sons.
As I am sitting here watching the snow come down and covering the ground with a white blanket of snow, I can't help but think about the blood of Jesus that was shed to wash away our sins and make us white as snow. No matter what storms in life come our way, we can trust God to give us the grace and courage to whether the storm.
Living with ALS sometimes feels like I'm in a rowboat in the middle of a lake with no paddles and a huge storm looming on the horizon. But then I sense the presense of God and the peace I feel brings me comfort knowing he will be there for me through this particular storm.
I'm hoping March goes out like a lamb!!
