2013 Beginnings

It's hard to believe a year has passed so quickly. Digital scrap booking, Facebook, others more interesting blogs, Pinterest, you name it, have taken my attention from this blog. I was reading my post from December 2011 as we faced the uncertainty of a sudden layoff from General Dynamics because of lost contracts.I'm very happy to say that although my husband was laid off at Christmas 2011, as he was preparing a sermon on Patience, as our main Pastor was out of town, the outcome was not too much of a struggle. Trusting God is always a fruitful exercise and worked in our hearts. Two days after his layoff, the company that got the contract, hired him via teleconference as his new boss was getting on a plane! This year we look to March for the time when George has double knee replacement surgery. We are both getting excited about being able to walk together again and get in better shape etc.Our year started with 12-18 inches of snow in our area. It truly looks like Vermont around here. Snowboards and clothing dry near the wood stove. Ski boots, line the hallways. It's an understatement to say that our family room is a testament to each person's hobby. Between hunting,skate boarding, snow boarding, and nerf guns, along with the real gun safe, you must know you're in Vermont! I don't appreciate Vermont's liberal anti God focus, but I see God's splendor outside all around me. "The heavens declare the glory of God." No more so than Vermont!
