"Reckon it nothing but joy...whenever you find yourself hedged in by the various trials, be assured that the testing of your faith leads to power of endurance." (James 1:2-3)

"Success in life comes not from holding a good hand, but in playing a poor hand well." Denis Waitley

We are back to normal, and I am homeschooling the girls again, and Andrew is back at work. We may have an opportunity to travel abroad again with John Deere in a year or so. We are all looking forward to that. Samantha and Makaela miss the adventure and the challenges of living in another country, and Samantha is looking forward to learning a third language. I am still working on Portuguese... :-)

The girls have also been enjoying all of the snow we've been blessed with this winter. They spend several hours every day after school outside sledding, walking the neighbors dogs, and playing with their rabbits. They are not so sure what all the complaining about winter is all about as they are having such a great time!

Thank you for your support and prayers! :-) Love and hugs!

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,
"Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Just a reminder of our Father's promise.

Love, Mom

The news that the tumor may grow back is certainly not welcome. But, as you said, you are not a statistic. And, I believe that you have many, many factors in your favor for a long, long life.

It was good to talk with all of you last week. I love the pictures of the winter fun!
