Florida fun and sun the first of this month, flu last week, great day in the Lord's House yesterday, and then I went skiing (alone) today at Mad River Mountain, OH.  Our church group went Saturday, but I was home recovering from the flu and needed the rest so I could preach Sunday.

Now, a two day blizzard just started!   How can life get any better than this?

(Jim, Aaron & Matt Burns, and Miley Burns)
This is the "After Christmas Transfer!"  Our son and daughter in law from Prospect, OH were with us for Christmas along with our other son, Aaron who was home from China.  Our granddaughter Miley spent a couple of days with us after Christmas to play at "Nanny's House."  I  had a blast watching her "bond" with "Uncle Aaron" as she is now three and was just one when she last saw him.  Uncle Aaron and I took Miley to Kenton, OH and met Matt for a wonderful Mexican supper, then we "transferred" little Miley back to her Daddy to be delivered safely back to Mommy Jenny!  What a blessing to have a family that loves one and other!   Thanks gang for making Christmas so special for Coletta and me!

My wife, Coletta and I along with our youngest son home from China just returned from a New Year's vacation last night.  Monday, we left sunny Daytona Beach, Florida with 75 degrees, flew in one of the  "two" planes out of Daytona Beach Monday, changed planes at Charlotte, NC. After our second plane was "de-iced," we took off and landed at Nashville where our mini-van waited on us.  (All other Daytona Beach flights were canceled due to the ice and snow in Atlanta).

After battling the ice and snow driving from Nashville, TN to Ohio last night, we were welcomed by over 4 inches of snow!  I just got in from scooping snow for about an hour and loved it!  One of the blessings of colder temperatures and living in N. W. Ohio is the snow and cold temperatures keep the grass from growing.  I hate mowing grass (with a push mower) but love the snow!  The colder temperatures also kill the mosquitoes and bugs, plus as far north as we are, we really don't have hardly any snakes!  (No poisonous ones at all and none at all in winter)!

It's good to be home.  Can't wait to see everyone at church tonight!
