Life Goes On

We have all been a bit depressed around here, so we decided to put up our tree. We can only be encouraged when we remember , God loves us, sent His son to be our Savior, and will come for us at the appointed time. The girls did most of the work on the tree and Clint and I did the outside lights. This is the largest tree we aver have had. we inherited it used from some other americans who left Venezuela. Clint and I went out looking for lights and it took almost the whole day. But, hey thats socialism for you! (oops! I let that slip)

Glad you had time for some "light" moments. Just read Jackie's blog on Prove. 31 It was great, and that is my favorite scripture. You've trained her well Mom, to read and know the scriptures. Praying for you,
Kim

oh I'm so glad Kim got to read blogs lately. Pray for her. She is working full time and with poor health! Lots of back problems among other things. But she is a true sweetie!
I LOVE YOUR TREE! It's so big and decorated so well! The girls did an awesome job. Guess what drew my attnetion in the most? The "cute little teddy bear on the front!" Be still my heart!
