march snowstorm

March is not being totally lamb-like. Sunday evening, Loretta, Josiah, and I were finally able to leave to go to my daughter Christa’s house in Luck, WI to see our newest grandbaby, Katiyanna. We drove right into the eye of a March snowstorm just north of Owatonna. Cars were going into the ditch left and right and the traffic was starting to bunch up. I figured we might be safer getting out of the congestion and taking a state road rather than a freeway so we tried highway 47 which would have taken us around the Twin Cities on the east side. But 15 miles into that trek, a semi jackknifed blocking both lanes of traffic.We retreated to Northfield and got a motel. Praise the Lord, by morning the roads were passable and we got there with no incident.

By the way, Katiyanna just has cuteness written all over her. I pray one day God will speak to her heart and bring her into his loving arms as his child as well as mine. It is not enough to be born once. May God bring her to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. For my family, I pray for a great heavenly reunion with all my children being more God’s children, safely in the arms of Jesus.

Psalm 127:1

1 Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it:except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall no be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

Love in Christ,

A happy Grandpa,
