The Expansion Project

So I will be away from my dearly loved blog (loved by me I mean) for a few days. John's sis and her 3 kids are driving down from Colorado to spend a few weeks. They will be here late sunday night and then we are leaving on Tuesday for a few days in New Orleans. Then down to the beach (all with John's mom). After that we will be back in the country for a week or so with 4 extra people in our house. So for now my project is expanding our living space to accomadate 4 more. The crazy thing is I feel confident that we have plenty of room. Just one bathroom but I think we can handle it pretty gracefully. We shall see. Maybe I will post pictures of the arrangements I make to fit that many people in this little house. I mean come on folks - back in the day large families lived like this all the time. Enjoy your first week of spring. I read the following quote this morning which I loved so I will encourage you with it.

“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, he would have sent an economist. If he had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, he would have sent us a comedian or an artist. If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, he would have sent us a politician. If he had perceived that our greatest need was health, he would have sent us a doctor. But he perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death; and he sent us a Savior.”

- D.A. Carson, A Call to Spiritual Reformation

You did a FABULOUS job of making us all fit! Thanks for the hospitality and all the great fun. My kids went out this morning to "dig" in the leftover snow and of course, dirt. They were so excited to find a worm in the dirt and had me come out and look at it. I think my kids needed a taste of the great outdoors, now they have a new love of nature! Talk to you soon. Thanks again for everything!
