Snow Snow Snow!

Tim's dad, Bob, came up to stay with us last weekend. It was a really great time with such a funny old man ;) Hi, Bob!!

He told his corny jokes, he played with Cody, and he and Tim spent some great time together in the garage. You know, good ol' father-son building a plow time. 

They worked on finishing up the plow that Bob had welded for Tim. So, they painted it and got it all set up with the treated plywood as the plow blade.

The way Bob brought up the blade's frame. You can see the hitch part on the right, too.
 They painted that part black

Hi, Tim!

Bob, getting the blade hooked on

Cody and Maggie were enthralled with the idea of snow!

The boys took their turns watching how it works

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
