Yesterday found us enjoying the day outside.  We worked in the yard and enjoyed the sunshine; we had a bbq and listened to the birds.    

Today finds us enjoying hot chocolate and books as we sit cuddled under blankets.  Yesterday it reached 81 degrees and today a little snow has arrived...   

We've tasted Spring though, and we're so glad she's here.  

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings. 
Phippians 2:13,14

Imprisonments, persecutions, late planes, an attack of the flu, an uninvited guest, or an unpleasant confrontation--never mind. Be obedient as always! Such a simple directive. So hard to carry out--unless we also remember that we are not by any means alone in our effort. God also is at work in us, always accomplishing what we could not accomplish if left to ourselves: his own chosen purpose.

Elisabeth Elliot
I found myself reading this today and it echos the cry of my heart... God at work in me...  it's just what I need and want.  Lord Jesus, come.
