I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

White and fluffy

 I heard on the news that the first big snow of the season fell across the entire northern part of the country a few days ago. I was slightly saddened by that. It will be a long long long time (never) until we see snow around here. In fact, even though it has been cool enough for long sleeves several times lately, we broke 70 degrees today. 
 So I was slightly discouraged about my location in the world when I headed out this afternoon. But as I pulled out of my tiny little town, I noticed a slight dusting of puffy white, floating lightly on the grass beside the road. It was absolutely beautiful. Dainty and pure and simply pretty. 
 
Cotton. 

 It is harvest time. And suddenly, I can appreciate my tiny little southern town again. Dirt roads, pecan groves, and loose cotton, rather than snow, dusting the side of the road. Life is good.

Yup! Georgia snow!!
It did snow here really good 20 years ago. Nobody knew what to do with it! No one knows how to drive in it, walk on it, nothing. I had chicken pox (I was 13), so I didn't feel good enough to play in it. )o:

Great attitude!! I'd take the little Georgia town 'snow' to say - New York City snow ANY day!
