If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

As I'm reading around the blogs, so many of you are talking about snow. Some in South Texas got flurries and some others are hearing snow forecast in the next day or so. And you all are so excited about it and wanting more.

Now for me, I'd just as soon it didn't snow. I mean, I think it's beautiful. And I don't mind shoveling the drive and sidewalks and then making hot chocolate for everyone when we come in to warm up. If I could do that and not have to go anywhere else, I'd be good and wish for snow too. But since I have to work, which means I have to drive in the stuff, I'd be happy if it didn't snow at all this winter.

I mean the snow falling here on my blog would be enough for me.

But I know since I live in Ohio, that's not gonna happen. We will have snow. We always do. And it always seems to happen on Saturday nights so my hubby has to stay up and worry about whether to cancel the church services or not. lol Oh well, I guess that's what winters are for huh. Speaking of which, here are some pictures from around our house and subdivision last December. It really is kinda pretty isn't it?


  1. I am totally with you on the whole snow thing. if it would stay off the roads and just on the grass and trees...I would welcome it all winter...but when driving conditions become dangerous. I do not like it at all.

  2. It is beautiful and I would love it. I sure hope we get some here in Richmond.
    Blessings, andrea

  3. Love the photos, I wished we had snow like that here (Texas) Ours seem to melt off in a day :(

  4. hello, I'm visiting from Mocha with Linda.

    I enjoyed your snow pictures. I was another Texas girl who got excited to see a little bit of flurries coming down today!

    Have a good weekend!

  5. Awww yes.. I remember those days.. I have snow/ice covered street pics too.

  6. Oh the life of the pastor's wife, lol! Same thing happens to us. We start getting calls from the worship leader or some of the other ministry leaders, wondering whether there will be church the next day.

    But, as you said, sometimes it's hard to tell the night before!

  7. It is beautiful...but I'm with you. I just assume it not snow.

    As a kid, I only like it so i didn't have to go to school.

    Now, as an adult, I like to watch it fall...for about 20 minutes...but then that's enough...turn it off...life must go on. Life without shoveling, wrecks and power outages. Which is the case EVERYTIME it snow in Alabama!

  8. Hey, Cathy~

    Although I really do understand the driving issue since most of the people in our area don't know how to drive in it since we really don't get that much. Skippy drives up and over the mountain each day and that can be very dangerous.

    Blessings and a SAFE WINTER SEASON~

  9. You have an award on arise 2 write.

  10. I'm glad I don't have to deal with it like you northerners do. But it would be nice to have a happy medium between flurries and indundated! I've never seen more than a couple of inches in my life, which means once you make a tiny snowman, the grass is back!

  11. yep...totally agree about the snow. And here in south Arkansas, we get it so rarely, that when some does accumulate, people lose their minds! It's crazy...they buy up all the milk and bread at the stores, thinking we'll be iced in forever. They certainly can't drive on it. Of course we do get more ice than snow...which is dangerous, but noone here knows what to do with it.
    Some flurries are pretty, and the kids love it...but I'm just not a winter person. Bring on the sunshine!!

  12. I'm with you would much rather watch it then drive in it. Just drove down a mountain in the snow about an hour ago! Glad I was in a jeep.

  13. Hi Cathy!
    Is it snowing yet?
    Here in upstate, NY ... it started late this morning (Saturday).
    We have about 4 inches now!
    I took photos earlier today, thinking it was going to wrap up soon...nope...
    it's still coming down ...

    Stay cozy!

  14. Snow is such a mixed blessing...especially here in the South! One inch and the whole area loses its mind while all of the groceries stores lose their milk and bread.

    You'd think they would all know buy now that Pop-Tarts are the snow food of choice. (they don't have to be cooked and they're FORTIFIED, lol!)

  15. I decided to comment here instead of your SWF (I'm a little late getting around!). I'm very accustomed to snow, living in CO - in fact, it's snowing as I write this! I never thought about ministers worrying about weather! Hope all is well this weekend with you and your Family.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
