Warning---do not read if you are sick and tired of s-n-o-w. Our week began with several days of dire warnings about the huge snowstorm headed our way. Before the first flakes began falling I believe all the local stores were out of milk and bread.We did end up with a foot of snow on Tuesday, but most of the roads were plowed and passable by Wednesday and life went on. Kiska was very curious about the snow and every time we opened the door to the deck she had to check it out. She made it to the grill and then couldn't figure out how to get back in without touching that darned cold snow.
Every February our Women's Ministry hosts a conference at the church. They did a fabulous job transforming the narthex into a fun, welcoming atmosphere.
I loved the prayer wall--baskets of silver Sharpies were available for anyone who wanted to add their prayer. We had the opportunity to provide donations to a local transitional living facility or funds towards buying sewing machines or solar powered laptop computers for our partners in Malawi.
Jenny Simmons and her band performed several songs and she shared inspirational stories and insights. Sorry, I took only one photo and it's pretty blurry, but if you ever have the chance to hear her speak or sing you are in for an amazing evening. She can bring it!
