I have rarely seen a dress this beautiful. It is made of crumpled paper, and the bodice is covered with watches and broaches. We found it in a museum. Enjoy.

Today I am extra thankful. Thankful for warmth. I prayed that we would not lose our power, that we would be warm and have food. And that is exactly what happened. God is good. So here are a few pictures that I think look like flames. Can you feel the warmth?

“For here’s what God told me: “I’m not going to say anything, but simply look on from where I live, Quiet as warmth that comes from the sun, silent as dew during harvest.” 
Isaiah 18

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”

A Bad Visitor

Tomorrow we are to have the return of our bad visitor. Tonight it is to snow between 3 and 6 inches of snow. Then tomorrow afternoon, we are to get EIGHT hours of an ice storm. Schools are already closed, power outages are likely. Not very long ago, we had an ice storm. You may remember these pictures from it. We lost our power and nearly froze, and lost hundreds of dollars of food. SO, if you do no hear from me for awhile, you know we have no power. Perhaps we will get the police to take us to a shelter...But God is in control, and with him all things are possible.

It’s God’s breath that forms the ice, it’s God’s breath that turns lakes and rivers solid. And yes, it’s God who fills clouds with rainwater and hurls lightning from them every which way. He puts them through their paces—first this way, then that— commands them to do what he says all over the world. Whether for discipline or grace or extravagant love, he makes sure they make their mark.
Job 37

Better Late Than Never

I forgot to post my Valentine crafts! These are ones I made with the girls in the past. You can pretty much tell how to make them just by looking at them. They are all made from different kinds of paper. I put this heart wreath on the front door.

The bird wings are accordion folded tissue paper pushed through a slit.

This one is woven, very simple.

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God
Proverbs 3
