our snow days...


We flew in to Lexington, Kentucky on Sunday morning after the biggest snow storm in 10 years. It was absolutely beautiful. We needed to see beauty, God knew our hearts were heavy. As you know, the Kentucky Derby is in Louisville, but most of the horse farms are around Lexington. What a vision to look out the airplane window and see all the snow blanketing these magnificent farms.

It was bitter-sweet to be back in Kentucky; so happy to see loved ones, but sad to say goodbye to Grandma Ruth. She already looked like an angel when we saw her at the funeral home, I am grateful for that.

I want to share with you the words to this song... so fitting for a dear wonderful woman who loved the Lord, her family and whose back had not been able to stand for years.

If You Could See Me Now

Our prayers have all been answered. I finally arrived.
The healing that had been delayed has now been realized.
No one's in a hurry. There's no schedule to keep.
We're all enjoying Jesus, just sitting at His feet.

If you could see me now, I'm walking streets of gold.
If you could see me now, I'm standing strong and whole.
If you could see me now, you'd know I've seen His face.
If you could see me now, you'd know the pain is erased.
You wouldn't want me to ever leave this place,
If you could only see me now.

My light and temporary trials have worked out for my good,
To know it brought Him glory when I misunderstood.
Though we've had our sorrows, they can never compare.
What Jesus has in store for us, no language can share.
You wouldn't want me to ever leave this perfect place
If you could only see me now
If you could see me now
If you could only see me now
