Weekend Review filled with JOY

The weekend didn't start off filled with joy, but is sure did end that way.  I love when God takes me from feeling down to up on top of a mountain in just a few days.  It makes my heart light.

Friday we were told to expect 2-4 inches of snow. I was sure not happy about that. Instead we got an inch of ice and sleet. That turned out to be far worse!  There were cars off the road and a lot of spin outs.  We took our time getting home after work and I was very glad to be home safe.

Saturday it all starting to defrost and melt. I went out with the dogs to work on raking around the snow piles.  The ground is still frozen but there is about a 1/4 inch of soft ground so the leaves are coming up and it's getting easier to rake.

All of the snow in the front and both sides are gone, this is all I have for snow at the moment so of course we have to start taking out the summer things.

We started to take out the grand kids toys

And also started to take out August's agility toys
Best of all, we had some flowers pop open to greet us!

Sunday, was the best day EVER.  Our normal preacher is away on vacation and he asked Hubby to give the sermon.  Hubby agreed and prayed and studied and wrote his sermon and rewrote his sermon and on Sunday morning, he got up and delivered his sermon.  I am so proud of him! He was nervous and the room was full but he did it. He gave a sermon that was logical, spiritual, and scripturally sound. Well Done!

God took me from sadness over sleet and ice to gladness getting to watch my husband preach the word of God to our congregation. 


  1. Praise God for bringing you from the valley to the mountain!

  2. What an honor for your hubby!

  3. Please keep your snow & ice up there! The dogwoods and redbuds have started doing their thing here!
    I bet your husband did GREAT!

  4. What a wonderful post to read. Congrats to your husband and I hope your joy will continue through the week! :)

  5. What a great honor for Gerry to be asked to guest preach! I'm sure he did a great job, and I'm also sure you were front and center supporting him every inch of the way.

    Congratulations to you both!

  6. Kudos to your husband for getting--and accepting-- the opportunity to preach :) What a great ending to your weekend! Have a great week.

  7. Very cool that your hubby got to step up and deliver the sermon!

    Hopefully, it will warm up for you soon :)
