Foto Friday challenge

How appropriate that this week's challenge is "Black and White." See we've been getting snow off and on all week long. Ugh, is winter here already? I am afraid so... I must admit I am even less prepared for winter this year then I was last year. How is it the snow keeps coming earlier and earlier each year we are here?
Still no word on Indiana. I would love to say I am dilligently praying for nothing more than a right attitude but such is NOT the case. Yes, I've been begging, even pleading that Chris gets this job in Indiana. I know that he is ready for the move as well. But I must admit each time that I beg and plead for God to move us, in the next breath I find myself humbly apologizing... First and foremost, I want God's will and blessing on our lives, even if it is not our hearts' desire. I want to feel His spirit moving in me. To not be overwhelmed with disappointment if someone else if found to fill the position. To have my husband not feel as though he is lacking because someone else was chosen. God has been so good to us! We have been blessed in more ways that I can count... However, He has created a desire in me to acknowledge what he has DONE and is doing in my life. There are many who do NOT know the particulars of my past, nor will they unless the Lord leds me to post them. Even though I was saved as a young child, there were times in my adolescense and young adulthood that I sought my own will. AND WAS MISERABLE!!! These are NOT times I am proud of, yet I know God brought me through them. He saved me from myself! For that I am eternally grateful!!

And now onto the Foto Friday challenge.... Thanks Rebecca, I am really enjoying this even if it is often Friday morning that I am snapping photos!

Our once "chicken coop" now sits empty and alone....

Chris and Lily

By the way, Lily is a testament to my odd sense of humor. Aside from the white cross on her chest, she is black. And what colors are lilies? White! Our last black dog was Kohl.. Our little brown dog is Caleb, Hebrew for, none other than, "dog" but it also means "faithful." I am so looking forward to this next weeks challenge! WATER... hmm, I wonder if it frozen qualifies???
