"Our homes, imperfect as they are, must be a haven from the chaos outside. They should be a reflection of our eternal home, where troubled souls find peace, weary hearts find rest, hungry bodies find refreshment, lonely pilgrims find communion, and wounded spirits find compassion.”
~ Jani Ortlund

Softly, oh so quietly the snow came, in the night, to greet us this morning!

This is the same view as my flurries photo from the other evening!

There are many happy children in my home. We don't usually get snow before Thanksgiving!

Chris N. was so funny this morning. Giddy, I would say.
He woke the other boys with the good news of snow. They had been awake until about 3 am and this was shortly after 7 am.

Dear Mrs. Rabe,

The snow is just beautiful! Your blog is lovely!

Thank you for visiting me and for your sweet words! How wonderful that we love so many of the same things!!! I am so glad Karen's book was such a blessing to you too. How wonderful that you and her attend the same small church!

I hope you and you family have a lovely weekend! May the Lord bless you!

We don't usually get snow until February or so, but I'm thinking we might get a early flurry this year. Beautiful pictures!
