The Big 10

I Thank God for our our son, Cole.

He is a loving son, a kind brother, an amazing inventor, an avid herpetologist, a relentless optimist and a shameless servant of Jesus Christ.

"The Father of a Righteous Child has great joy"
Proverbs 23:24

COLBOURNE Robert James: you bring us GREAT JOY

To Cole from Gabe

Frozen ponds

The pond beside us froze solid and Mr Mains came to help clear a trail and the kids made skating paths through the icy forest and cleared a real game-sized rink yesterday.  It was like living in the Enchanted Forest.  I feel undeservedly blessed.

This is the beginnings of our front lawn area... the gully flooded and froze.

Matthew Henry - quote

Our morning devotions today involved this very lovely quote:

"The woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, 

nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him

under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved."
