God is LOVE ~ February Fun :)

I had a special delivery from someone special in Afghanistan....(Thanks Big D, you're the best! We love you and praying for you daily)

My parents came for a quick visit Friday. Dad had some business close by and mom stayed with us. We had a great time just hanging out. The kids took turns jumping all over Pop-pop. He was their personal jungle gym. I was blessed to be taken out to dinner and had groceries delivered! Thanks mom and dad! *sorry Grammama, didn't have a picture of you on my camera! :(
Sword fight - little D was jumping off furniture and window panes! He wanted to "whoop em"

We had a snowy weekend. Church was canceled so we had a little kids church at our home with neighbors. Fun stuff.

Co-teacher Tanika and our good little students soaking up every word. They are ready to put into practice!! :)

We threw snowballs on the frozen lake behind our house. It was beautiful.

Solomon figuring out the remote. He turned 10 months old today! Wow, it feels like he just arrived! He is definitely a gift, they all are.

Isabella and Little D chillin and getting ready for a jog.
Solomon wants to go outside too, but he stayed inside with our lovely nanny Molly. We were soooooooo thankful that Molly came and stayed with us for a week and a half. We miss you Molly! Check out her blog: On Jan 29th's post she wrote about how much fun she had during first few days of getting use to KIDS...
David Isaac turns 4 years old next month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lid D and Izzie love to sit at computer with me and watch youtube Praise music - their favorite is Matt Redman's "You Never Let Go"

We are doing good on the homefront and thankful to God. He takes care of us and "never lets us go". Though we still have our challenges, God is faithful and He keeps us in His hands.
We miss David and look forward to seeing him for 2 weeks in April. David is working hard and staying busy. David and the soldiers over there have so many do the families on the homefront. Please remember them all in your prayers.
May God's love be the source of our love and compassion for others. May we share His love (taking action) with those hurting and suffering in our families, neighborhoods, and world.
We hope you have a happy & blessed Valentines Day!
In Christ's Love,
The Arthurs
Psalm 100

Psalm 25:4-7
"Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O LORD."

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
