More Snow today and tomorrow and the next day... 2.21.11

Well... snow greeted us this morning. How ironic since I just stated yesterday in my post that the snow was on it's way out! I heard we are to expect another 3-5 inches over the next couple days. Oh my.
In the meantime, this weather is keeping Niyah and I inside for extra 'mommy-daughter' reading, snuggling, and coloring time. So that is definitely benificial. :) I have been trying to keep in mind that these are my last few months with 'just me and her' before brother comes along. She will always have another sibling around once he comes... so now's the time to treasure these last moments with her being my 'only child'. She is quite the little colorer now. She is soooo proud of herself when she makes a mark on her page and exclaims, "momma or daddy or Nana, or Ella etc" and points at the squiggle line on her page. She loves to draw portraits apparently. It is very cute.

As winter seems to continue here in the Leavenworth woods of Washington I have been learning more about myself. And let me say, it is not all that good. In fact, I am down right even more selfish and full of pride than I have ever known. Thankfully I have a husband who is very patient and willing to teach me and remind me of the gospel. God is gracious to change my heart of stone to a heart of flesh. "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. "Ezekiel 36:26.

I have also been reading a book by Bruce Ware on the Trinity. I have been amazed at how little I have known about the Triune God. Specifically how they relate to each other, how they relate to me, and what difference this makes in my life. It is definitely a book I'd recommend for all Christians to read. I will post some quotes from the book over the next week for you to see some of what I am learning as well.

Thankful for saving grace.
