A Different kind of Winter

This winter has been a trial and a testament for Dennis and I.  We have been through the lowest of lows and came out on top.  God's grace and goodness sustained us through one of the roughest patches we have been through since Dennis's accident 8 years ago.  Now, things are looking up.  Dennis is getting stronger every day and he even got to go to watch our niece Karley play basketball.  He also got to go back to FCA and see the kids.  FCA is the Fellowship of Christian athletics and it is a great organization.  The also have a great, dedicated leader in Linda Zimmerman!

This is the first winter I can remember that we haven't had snow.  We are suppose to get some this weekend, I hope so since we are still in a drought.  We need the moisture desperately, the crops need water and so do our lawns!  But since it has been unusually warm here in Oklahoma we did get to go out for a picnic one Sunday with no coats!  Most of the time the temperature here in February is in the teens and the Sunday we had our picnic it was 75 degrees.


Bailey thinks this is a great place to make smores!



Everyone loves smores, but mostly everyone likes marshmellows!



It was a great day for a picnic and an outing!  Much love,
Cheri

  1. How you need the rain or snow. The land is so parched. Smores bring back fond memories, especially for my children who loved them at summer camp in North Carolina. So glad you have come out the other end Cherie. Continue to remember you and Dennis most days. Blessings. Barbara
