Snow, Baby!

Finding treasures in the snow!
Behind those trees is the mall- you can't tell because of the beautiful haze.
Since my husband and I both grew up in warm, sunny climates we just love that our home in Amman gets SNOW! Last year it only lasted for a few days and I think this year will be similar. Just enough for us to love it and not long enough to have trouble living in it. The last couple of days have been full of friends, hot chocolate, home cooked meals, reading, and getting as much of the snow as we can! My goodness, it is beautiful here!

He sends the snow like white wool; he scatters frost upon the ground like ashes. Psalm 147:16

Let's Not Lose Sight

This is the phrase that comes to mind when thinking of a new year...really, when thinking of life in general! There are so many different things pushing and pulling for our attention. So many ways to spend our time and our lives. But in 2015 I want to focus on the important things. I want my time with the Lord to dictate everything else in my life. I don't plan to set a list of resolutions that I can't keep- instead I want to just re-determine in my heart to keep my eyes on Jesus. To have that be the priority in my life so that all other smaller desires will work themselves out. To not aim for perfection but just for a consistent relationship with God, a deeper devotional life, more time in prayer and the anticipation that God can and will do great things!

"Fixing our eyes on Jesus..." Hebrews 12:2
This was our wedding verse- and still a continual encouragement and reminder for me!
