These are wonderful, too, Amanda!

I'm also thankful for the world around us - blooming flowers, beautiful sunsets, myriads of stars and the glory of the full moon. God's world is so amazing!

With love,

P.S. I hope you and your family get over your colds soon.

Yes, often I wonder how people can look around at creation and say "it just happened" or "it gradually came to be." How can they NOT see a loving Father's hand involved in molding each part of Creation??

Thanks for your concerns of our cold. Right now, we just have a cough lingering . . . and lingering . . . but God is good. We are well enough to be singing somewhere tomorrow night, Lord willing!!! :)
