Snow in October!

You never know with New England is so unpredictable :]  One day you can be enjoying the beautiful fall colors and the next day looking out the window at a full blown Nor'easter. 

This storm broke a record for the most snowfall in October for NE.   Obviously different places received different amounts of snow, however our count as of Sunday morning is around 17 inches!

Here are some pics that I got this morning during chores :]  Enjoy!

Looking off our deck.

The snow has yet to come off the roof on our four-season room.
Doesn't it look like something bit that chunk of snow? :]

I caught this photo before Dad started plowing.

I had wanted to take a picture of my boots to show how high the snow came up, but because I wasn't standing in them they didn't sink down as far as I had hoped they would.  Oh well, I still liked the picture :]

The sun was trying to peek out behind the clouds.

Alright, now it is time for some animal pictures.....

Cole was waiting for her breakfast when I came out the door. 

Tynedale's first look at snow.  He looked around the corner and saw me and I snapped the picture right before he bounced off. Dad was plowing by this point, so he was skittish and just wanted to stand next to his mom. 

I LOVE this picture.  He is always moving and if for some odd reason his legs aren't going his ears are.  To catch him in such a perfect stance, with no movement was fantastic!

180 video

"Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy." - Psalm 82:3

Last night I was directed to a movie by a friend, who, knowing my interest in politics, as well as my desire to spread the gospel, thought that I would find it interesting.   

She was right.

Ray Comfort put together a video focusing on how different people he had talked to, changed their minds about abortion after explaining to them that we as Americans are allowing a "Holocaust" to happen right in our backyards through abortion.

Although the movie is around 30 minutes long, I would hightly recommend you watching it.  It breaks my heart to think of all the abortions that go on everyday and the fact that so few people even think about what is going on. Or, for that matter, even believe abortion to be wrong.  We need to get the message out and be spreading the good news of salvation as well.  

Ray Comfort is a fantastic speaker and can think on his feet :]  Please take a few minutes to watch it.  It may change your life or you may be able to use it to change the lives of others!

Please Note:  The movie does contain images from the holocaust as well some language that although it was "bleeped", you are still aware of something being said.

"I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry." ~ 2 Timothy 4:1-5
