And now an update on the more mundane affairs of life in this part of Michigan. Today was beautiful! I actually opened the curtains to let the sun in. Bright and warm at 20F, a lot warmer than last week!

Took the car in for another checkup. The mechanic thinks they found the “real” problem… we shall see. I am working on a help project for a startup – they are happy with what I’m doing. Have an interview with a non-profit organization tomorrow, and applied for another more serious position elsewhere. It’s been a quiet day. Cooking left overs for dinner.

Emily’s birthday is tomorrow. The girls are cooking, and we are planning a nice evening for her… and I feel encouraged as I realize that God has not given up on us.

Thank you Lord for our home, for warmth, and Your love and mercy.
