Snow Day

Yesterday evening we busily prepared for the impending storm; setting candles about, making sure the radio had new batteries and filling pails with water. The news forecasted quite the storm- two feet of snow, 50 miles per hour winds and wide spread power outage. We were ready for the worst, but prayed we would not lose our electricity.
When morning arrived we had a lot of snow. Thankfully the wind wasn’t as bad as expected and we did not lose our electric! So we were able to spend a cozy day sewing. The LORD is so good!
We were so pleased to see the farmer who lives up the road plowing our driveway with his tractor. Truly a blessing!
Later in the afternoon, my mother, sisters and I went out to shovel a path to the driveway. The snow was very deep. I think it exceeded the two feet expected. Our little dog Sophie wasn’t quite sure what to do, but as soon as we shoveled a path she ran about excitedly. Sophie loves the snow.
Today I received an email from a customer and sister in the Lord. She shared how over the past few months she has felt lead to reconsider the way she dresses. I really liked the way she expressed her feelings about this decision. She said she was going to “celebrate her womanhood”. One of the many joys of womanhood is the privilege to wear lovely, feminine clothing.

“Direct me in the path of Your commands, for there I find delight. “ Psalm 119:35
