God is light. We cannot add to His brightness, but we may act as reflectors, which, though they have no light of their own, yet, when the Sun shines upon them, they reflect His beams, and send them where, without such reflection, they might not have come. When the Lord shines upon us, we will cast that light upon dark places, and make those who sit in the shadow of death to rejoice in Jesus our Lord.
We hope that God has been in some measure glorified in some of us during the past year, but we trust He will be glorified by us far more in the year which now begins. We would have it so happen that, when our life’s history is written, people will not think of us as ‘self made men,’ but as the handiwork of God, in whom His grace is magnified. Not in us may man see the clay, but the Potter’s hand. They said, ‘We hardly notice how he preaches, but we feel that God is great.’
~ Charles Spurgeon
New Years Day we awoke to almost a foot of snow! Our snow removal team plowed out the driveway and then got to work on rebuilding our snow slide off the deck.
The above view
Almost 8 ft. tall
The touch up team....
Dad going down! The photographer even tried it but the pictures did not turn out. =)
Hopefully this slide will last a little longer than the first one. Oh yes, and for all our friends out there just dying to come over and try it out...just call ahead!
