I felt so horrible this past January.  I hated every minute of it.  But with 2 weeks of sun, fresh air, and a new perspective I feel like a million bucks.

Small changes, new mind set and hope is the result....

But there is a small part of me that has this portion of fear that remains with me...fear to ever feel that awful again.  That portion keeps me focused.  But even with focus I know that with this very real life we all live another "january" is sure to come.  And there is a small part of me that can even be grateful for the "january's" because they are the cause for change, focus and hope.

"You are the salt  of the earth.  But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned?" Matthew 5:13

Salt and Light...that is my focus this week...not being afraid...

Pictures Above:

The lake in town freezes and the entire town goes out in masses and skates and skates and skates.  It is truly like living in a picture.  We got there 1st one morning...but the lake is usually PACKED with people...all living in a Norman Rockwell painting!!  And Pete was Dad of the Year standing on that cold ice all weekend.  I was mom of the year staying home with Drew....

But when Drew was there he found licking the ice to be the most entertaining thing to do....

  2. Do they swim in this lake in the summer? Must be strange to swim, and then walk on the "water"! Your pictures are so clear and bright! I feel like I'm in Alaska too! Love seeing the kids!
