I can't feel my toes

Damn it's cold outside.

I hate winter. I don't mind the cold, but WHERE IS THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!

It just seems to bring the mood down a notch or two. On the bright side of things, at least it isn't so humid I have to chew the air I breathe.

Any one who know Amy and I, knows that we have been a little stressed lately with a lot of different things.

About a year a go we had "perfect" plan and everything was going to be great. Fast forward....WOW.

Amy says it all time "Everything happens for a reason." Were we just to comfortable when we got a kick in the ass that pushed us off course? Is it a test? Probably, but Why? Build character? To reinstate who really holds the power?

I heard this quote from the bible, on TV, several months ago and can't stop thinking about it.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Please help Amy and me to really hear this verse, help us battle through the difficult times and love the lord even more when things turn around.

My rockstar wife

Just a quick entry about my wife.

She has put it in her heart bless a family over the Christmas season this year.

Instead of playing an extra game (which means buying an extra gift), she wanted to "adopt a family" with the money we would have spent on gifts.

Our family along with some very generous people are going to make it a wonderful Christmas this year for a single mother with two kids in Elk River.

Amy is amazing. She did the research and found a church that helps less fortunate families. She also gathered money and other donations for this family. We (our family and friends) have been able to purchase a lot of clothes and toys for children, a gift card for groceries and a gift card for the mother to go clothes shopping. What is really amazing is through a friend, a wonderful woman from Crayola donated a lot of kids/teenager items. When I say a lot, I mean two rubber totes full of stuff. Coloring books, sidewalk chalk & paint, markers, crayons, you name it and it's in the totes....WOW!!!!!!!

Here she is playing with some of the coloring stuff.

You rock Amy!
