God is so Good

Yesterday we woke up to this ............. SNOW !!!!!!

I'm so ready for Spring and so are the kids. Jennifer had a field trip to Farm Days since it was earth day. It is held outside at the fairgronds. My first thought was how terrible of a day. I watched the weather and they said the snow should stay in the mountains. Of course No such Luck ........

I thought of the seasons and how things should be...... Spring , Summer , Fall and Winter.

In Nevada we deal with a lot of wind. Which sometimes blows very strong. The other day while I was walking to get the kids at school and thinking ........

God is very powerful and strong.

Then I thought of how God is in control of everything. How he knows what the day holds for us. How he knows what the weather will be. How it is amazing the way God takes care of us all. So you know we just have to trust in God and he will lead us in the direction he wants. So I thought a few favorite verses of mine.

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
Jeremiah 17:7-8 (KJV)

Knowing how great our God is and that he can carry us through whatever storm in our life brings us.

God is great and God is so Good.

So we should thank him no matter what the day holds for everyday is a blessing.

Jennifer ended up having a great time for her field trip even if we had a little snow.

Have a great day !!!!

God Bless

The verse from Proverbs is one that we said a lot in Caravans. :) I'm sure that snow won't stick around long (hopefully)!

wow snow! Glad Jennifer still was about to enjoy her field trip. That is kind of how it was in Montana during the spring; you thought the snow was over and then nope, another storm would come in, but at least we knew it wouldn't stick around too long

great thinking about God and how strong he is and that nothing catches him by surprise. I would remind myself of that when times were tough

trust is such a hard issue sometimes; I know I have struggled with it for a very long time, but am finally really learning to trust in this year

hope you have a nice weekend :)
