C'est la Vie: Two Seasons, One Week

I can't help but mention the irony of this week. Technically, it is still winter. Up until today, it has felt like spring. Spring starts tomorrow, and we'll be celebrating with a thick blanket of snow on the ground. As we all say around here, "That's Colorado for you." The funniest part is that it doesn't seem to phase kids at all.

My daughter woke up as excited as ever that it was snowing. She immediately capitalized on the situation and asked for some hot chocolate with her breakfast. I caved. It was a good morning. The change of the seasons always remind me of the Bible verse (it may remind you of a popular song from the 60's too) that says, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3:1) Even when spring arrives under a frosting of white, the flowers will still bloom, the grass will turn green, the clouds will roll away, and the birds will still sing.

It's nice to know that there is a rhythm to life. After winter comes the spring, and then summer. Summer turns to fall, and fall fades into winter. Then it all starts over again. When our life seems out of control, it's nice to be reminded that there is a God in control of the universe and we can count on Him to take care of us. He does, after all, make those seasons just for us.

Frisco's Wassail Days

Friends, 
I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees.

Mom Spot: Living Green Tip

I have one word for today:

compost
Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time of the year. Countertop composting may be your best option if you live in  a small place. But believe me, you want to get this stuff out of the house as soon as possible. Seriously.
That's why what you really need to know about is what goes in there and where to put it. I've read books on the subject (yes, actual entire books) and here's what it boils down to: Get yourself a good collection bin for inside and a realistic spot to put it outside (I use an old plastic ice cream container by my sink and then a standard bin with lid in my garden.)Stick with vegetable and fruit debris primarily along with egg shells and coffee grounds.Although coffee grounds can go directly to the dirt, all else needs time to decompose. Give it no more than 3 days inside and then get it where it needs to go!So where should it go? In a bin, in a ditch, or on a pile. You choose. (If you live in an apartment, don't think this i…

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
