Valentines Day

Briannah and Sally

Thursday afternoon we all got cards from Grandma and Grandpa Thompson, and when Cody opened his card-wow!-he saw the money and ran around talking about how he was going to get some treats! It was so funny. I thought I would take some pictures of him, being so possesive of his money. He would'nt let anyone touch it. It was really funny. Usually I just have them open the cards with me and and they give it to me so I can hold it-but not this time. You should have seen their faces when they saw stickers too! (Briannah said " This is the best Balentines day ever!That's not a mis-print, that's how she sounds when she says it!) Then later on in the afternoon we also got a package from Grandma Tish-and that was just the icing on the cake. On monday she got a card from Grandpa and Grandma Tish-with feathers in it from her chicken "Sally". I'll have to put some pictures of "Sally" and Briannah on here so everyone can see. She is so proud of the chicken that Pa Pa Tish gave her. IT WAS A WONDERFUL VALENTINE'S DAY, thank you all for the cards and gifts. Love Amy

So the daycare is officially running. My first call was for 9 week old twins! Then I got a call for a 3 yr old boy. It turns out that I will probably take the twins and then just take my name off the list till I know that I can handle the pressure! We got to meet them on Tuesday, and they are SO cute. I really pray that God will do amazing things through this daycare. Even if the only thing he does is provide a way for us to get out of the military and move home.
We got our first snowfall of the year here, but it's back to the 50-60 degree weather, and the snow is gone. But the kids loved it while it lasted.
I'll keep everyone posted on the updates, and will post more pictures when dad comes home to stay on the 23rd.

Daycare Update

My daycare is complete! I had my last inspection today, and I'm seeing God really work in some amazing ways! I've been really nervous about these inspections-I've been praying that if this is really what God wants that he would make the path smooth-that everything would happen without any setbacks from these inspections. And for both inspections, it could'nt have gone better! So now I am ready to go forward with this process, and I can't wait to see what God is going to do next!

The will of God

The Will of God

The will of God will never take you………
Where the grace of God cannot keep you,
Where the arms of God cannot support you,
Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs,
And Where the power of God cannot endow you.

The will of God will never take you……….
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you,
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,
Where the army of God cannot protect you,
Where the hands of God cannot mold you.

The will of God will never take you………..
Where the love of God cannot enfold you,
Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you,
Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,
And Where the authority of God cannot overrule you.

The will of God will never take you………..
Where the comfort of God cannot dry your tears,
Where the Word of God cannot be done for you,
Where the miracles of God cannot be done for you,
And Where the omnipresence of God cannot find you.

Everything happens for a reason. We may not be able to see it now, but trust Him. If we love God and are called according to His plan, He will make everything that happens to us fit into a pattern for good.

Yesterday we spent the day at home getting ready for Daddy to come home for the weekend. I built the kids a "clubhouse" - you know, the kind where you throw a bunch of blankets over chairs. Anyways, it was really cute. And with Tyson being home I'm sure we will have more pictures soon. Amy

Happy Groundhog Day!

I don't know how we can wish for six more weeks of winter/six weeks of spring if there has not been any winter yet! But whatever!
