We woke up this morning to a world of white ... SNOW!!!  It isbeautiful and amazing to see it here!  It's still falling as I type.  Roger went in late this morning so he could take the children out to play.  Isn't that sweet?!  We are planning to do a little schooling and then maybe back outside to play.  I don't want to lose what may be this *one* day to play in it.  lol

Today is a historic day.  We have been studying on the inauguration over the last week and a half and plan to watch it on tv today.  We have been using Amanda Bennett's Inauguration unit study and it's been interesting to look back over the past events and today we look ahead to the future.

I've been talking with friends about this event and it has come up on the FIAR message board.  Some are really struggling with this new leader.  My wise and beautiful friend Barb had this to share and I thought it was wonderful and wanted to share it with you.

We ALL have every reason to hope and pray that Obama is successful in his presidency! Given that, I feel this verse ~

2 Chron. 7:14 (MsgB)
and my people, my God-defined people, respond by humbling themselves, praying, seeking my presence, and turning their backs on their wicked lives, I'll be there ready for you: I'll listen from heaven, forgive their sins, and restore their land to health.

~ is a very important one for this time!

God is still sovereign and in control whether our choice won or not!


Please join me in praying for our new leaders - that God's hand would be upon them.
