Its been in the 50's lately, which means I can walk to and from the mailbox with no coat and not freeze! AND more importantly we can go outside and play comfortably, the snow has melted (completely!), and we are starting to see some GREEN! I am really growing in my appreciation of the seasons. The anticipation of Spring and its fulfillment is quite a joy. And in the seasons there are so many resemblances to the seasons in our lives, no? We hope for Spring, the winter is dark and cold, but Spring is coming... all will be made right when we see God face to face and we are no longer have to struggle against the things of this world. And, on a much smaller scale, out of the hard times in life comes new growth. Persevere. He who is faithful does not give up on you. Have you heard Steven Curtis Chapman's "Spring is Coming?" If not, you should check it out.
Still not walking consistently. She's lacking the confidence. She thought it was pretty cool to pull up on Sissy's bike, though.
When we get home from the library, Hope likes to sit and "read" her books herself. It is fun becuase 1. it keeps her busy for quite a while 2. I get to hear her imagination at work since she really has no idea what the books are about 3. Anna will sit with her and do the same with her books and its just so very sweet.
