a bit of magic?

It’s been one of those weeks.

After much consideration, C2 named his new pet fish Teal O’Neil. (Even though he’s brown? “At night, he jumps out of the water and does cartwheels and somersaults, and his stomach turns blue.” Of course.) And my cluster headaches came for a night, a second night, and disappeared. And Rainbow (the bearded dragon) was bleeding, wait, no, he just ate some dewberries. And the SAT and I will sit down and have one last (please, Lord) dizzying conversation of words and numbers on Saturday morning. Oh right, and this morning, fat snowflakes fell straight out of the sky, and I drove to the doctor with flurries hitting my Houston-Texas-windshield, y’all. It’s been one of THOSE weeks.

And in the midst of all this global warming (ahem), you just have to snuggie-up and ask,

"Have you ever traveled to where snow is made,
seen the vault where hail is stockpiled,
The arsenals of hail and snow that I keep in readiness
for times of trouble and battle and war?
Can you find your way to where lightning is launched,
or to the place from which the wind blows?
Who do you suppose carves canyons
for the downpours of rain, and charts
the route of thunderstorms
That bring water to unvisited fields,
deserts no one ever lays eyes on,
Drenching the useless wastelands
so they're carpeted with wildflowers and grass?
And who do you think is the father of rain and dew,
the mother of ice and frost?
You don't for a minute imagine
these marvels of weather just happen, do you?"
(Job 38:22-30)

No, Sir.

And (before I go back to my snowman) C2 decided to keep warm from the cold temperatures (see above) by putting on his brother's pads and tackling little B from next door (who fell over giggling when he first caught sight of the mini-football player) because yesterday was just one of those days.

Praying for you as you test! I haven't taken the SAT, but know from taking 5 CLEP tests how much brain power that takes. Did the snow stick at your house?

Thank you so much for praying! The craziest thing happened though - the SAT was cancelled because of the snow. Amazing, right? God is good. :D I think it was moved to 12/19.

The snow did stick for a little while, but we're so close to the coast it was gone by noon. What about at your house? The pictures you took are gorgeous!

Well, I prayed. :) Will pray for you this Saturday too when I think about you. Please pray for my brother and I, 12/19 we'll be taking tests as well and I'm nervous 'cause our test date was moved sooner than it was supposed to be! (we were supposed to test 12/21, but ended up not being able to...)

The snow stuck until that afternoon..but it snowed almost all day.
