So do not fear, for I am with you;

do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you;

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

~Isaiah 41:10~



We have snow again! I haven’t been outside, but according to  the road closure list, it is best to stay in and wait until the temperature warms up and the snow and ice melts.  If you have something scheduled for the next couple days, it may be wise to make a phone call to see if that appointment, etc. has been cancelled.
