Great is the Lord, and Most Worthy of Praise!

"Within the temple, O God,
we meditate on your unfailing love."
Psalm 48:9
We had such a blessed time at church this morning!
With the inclement weather and subsequent snowy/icy road conditions making travel difficult,
there were only about 55 brothers and sisters that were able to gather together this morning.
So Pastor Dean decided to hold off on continuing his series on the Holy Spirit,
until all are able to hear it.
The other good thing about Pastor Dean postponing his planned sermon was,
in its place,
he asked the congregation to share what the Lord has been showing us from God's word.
It was an awesome time of sharing together about God's unfailing love for His people!!
And, we had some extra time of singing with Monte and band, : -)
and that is always wonderful! 
On a side note,
we sure love our Pastor and his wonderful wife!
They are such a tremendous blessing to all of us!!
(He doesn't normally wear a hat at church ;-)
Today, he briefly slipped this Seahawks hat on as he walked up to the podium for a little fun!)
We opted to leave our van at home.
It needs the battery charged anyway!
We got to say hello to Kelley,
Sharaya and Zona on our way!
With the snow drifts as they were,
her driveway is a little more "snowed in"  than ours.

Oh yes, . . . and we had to get these special cookies to the church!

First challenge was making it down our hill,
without slamming into Kyle's car at the bottom!

This is the first road we came to.
Just went slow,
and all was fine!
We couldn't remember ever seeing Mayfield Lake frozen like this.
Lydia has a REALLY AWESOME picture of it on her blog.  : -)

It is a always a beautiful drive to church,
but today was even more spectacular!

And back to our little neck-of-the-woods!

 And safely home!

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom,
and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God."
Colossians 3:16

Love all of the beautiful pictures! Especially the one with the trees on your way to church--so lovely! Funny that Pastor Dean had to put that hat on:-) We sure missed being there with all of you on Sunday! Looks like we missed some delicious valentine's day cookies too :-(
Love you!
