Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

Spring is here

Spring is in the air - we have had a few days of exceptionally warm weather for this time of year - and we've made the most of it - planting in the garden, playing in the park, saving money on the heating bill - to name but a few.

I love this time of year - summer gets a little too hot for me and I'm often uncomfortable but spring brings fresh hope, after the dredge of winter.
It's often the same in our lives, we have to weather the winter to get to the spring, sometimes we just feel so hopeless and nothing seems to be going right (especially when we've had very little sleep) but be assured spring is coming, the seasons in our life are changing. And through it all we know that we can trust and rely on our God, who is in ultimate control.

And heres some pics of us enjoying the park
