Beautiful Blessings


















Christmas brought a beautiful blessing for both Sitka and I. Snow graced our central Virginia home. Being the mom of Nordic breeds, I share their love for snow. I love to watch them romp and play in it. On this day, Sitka and I were enjoying my new Bible. It is "waterproof!" It is made of synthetic material. I can underline in it and use dry highlighters and it does NOT smear or ruin when it gets wet. The water just "rolls" off. I love snow and I love reading my Bible. What a beautiful combination! I am known to drag my Bible "everywhere." This one is perfect. I am thankful Sitka and I now have a sturdy Bible for our adventures!

Thank you for your prayers, love, encouragement, and support. Both Doug and I are feeling better. We are continuing to treat this respiratory flu with hot tea, musinex, and lots of rest. GOD bless each of you for your prayers!

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea

That is the coolest idea for a Bible! I love it! I've never heard of one though...where do you get one...at a Christian bookstore?...does it come in every translation?..

I love it how you can enjoy nature, your dogs, and God's Word at the same time!
Many blessings,
Jessica

I love the idea of a waterproof Bible! It would have been so great to have had one when my kids were little. So many of my notes in the margins of that decades old Bible are smudged out of readable range, sigh.

Seem like you know very well what to do to fight off that virus. Glad to hear you're both feeling better. I'm sure Sitka must be excited to see the snow that she loves! Take care sister and be strong in the Lord's mighty power! Love and blessings to you.

I'm so glad that you are feeling better. That flu bug is a stinker! What a gorgeous dog you have. Can't they just crawl up in your heart and snuggle? And what a great idea for the Bible. I had not heard of a waterproof one! Kool idea. Have a wonderful new year!

Amazing a water proof Bible. I think that is neat that you own one. To be able to take it everywhere and not have to worry about it is so nice.
Sorry I have not been here in a while. I need your post they make me feel better so I need to get over here more often.
Love the picture of you and baby in the snow.
While here I had to catch up and I hated to read that you and hubby have been fighting the flu. I pray by the time you read this that your feeling a hundred times better.
Wishing you a very blessed Happy New Year Andrea. Thanks for being my friend
Love ya

Good morning, Andrea~

I'm so glad you and Doug are feeling better. You need to stay on this road to recovery so you can go outside again with Sitka the next time it snows!

I am still trying to get to Harrisonburg so I can go to the Christian book store and see if they have a "waterproof" Bible there. I am on a QUEST! lol

Blessings, sweet lady~

Sitka's a beautiful dog, and she looks like my baby, Misha.

Scroll down and look in the right hand column. My Misha is an Alaskan Malamute.
