It's a Cold, Icy Day!

Today we have a lot of ice remaining from the winter cold blast that came through on Friday/Saturday.  Church services were cancelled today and we have had a nice day together as family.  Our oldest is heading back to college after a weekend visit as soon as the roads are clear enough to travel safely.  While she is preparing to leave us today, I thought I'd post my latest page in my scrapbook of my dad's life. 

Daddy loved family more than anything else and he was firmly rooted in that conviction.  Because of that I added a page that showed his love for family and his commitment to it.  In order to show how deep that commitment was I thought what better way than to add a tree.  So, if you like the tree on the page shown below you can get the tree svg file for it here.  I used Glossy accents on it to give a little shine, maybe you can see it in the photo.  I hope that it inspires you and gives you a feeling of how important the roots of our families are in our lives. It also spreads wide to show how all of us have an important role of preserving family and continuing the legacy given to us in earlier generations. 

I also have included a portion of Paulo's folkheartelement file that you can get for your own creation.  Paulo is so very talented and I often find myself thinking I need something to pull a project together with one of his creations.  His heart helps pull together the tree and hearts that are so very evident in the love that our family has shared through the years. 

While the ice and snow melt outside I pray that each of you have a blessed Sunday.  Remember to spend time with Christ as He is the giver of life.  Blessings to you all and thanks for stopping by the lil cabin in the woods!
