I'm not taking the day off for President's Day. I have a proofreading project due on an editor's desk tomorrow. Good thing I don't have to rely on USPS to deliver it. UPS is still delivering today.

Several things have come to my attention this past weekend. First off, late Saturday I got a notice from the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance that Mike Snyder's brother went home to be with the Lord Saturday. Mike is the author I featured on Friday. So please be in prayer for that family right now. His brother left behind a wife and three daughters.

On Friday I got news of a good friend from my early married/parenting days who has colon cancer, just discovered last week. The more tests they run, the worse it sounds. She may be having surgery today to remove a good portion of her colon (three large masses are blocking her colon). But the cancer has already metastasized and is affecting her liver, lymph nodes, and possibly even her lungs. The doctor's have said they cannot beat this. But Sally and Scott are continuing strong in their faith, believing God is totally in control. Please pray for this family as well. They have four adult children.

Saturday we went snowshoeing into our cabin—about three miles round-trip. Lots of snow; had to dig out the deck to get into the cabin. Several of the college and career young people went on up to Lost Lake—another three miles round trip. Roger and I stayed at the cabin. It was a good day.

Saturday evening Randy flew in from Sacramento to help with our camp's Skifest for over 200 teens last evening and today. So he spent the night with us. We got to see him for a few hours. From camp he flies to a camp conference in Arkansas with others who will have a leadership role in our summer camps. There isn't time to visit with him more before he heads back to Sacramento on Wednesday. He just set up a personal blog many of you readers might enjoy: One Thing.

Kathy continues to settle in to her work and flat and life in London. If you're interested you can follow her adventures at her blog: Life in London.

So life continues to be busy, challenging . . . and satisfying. God is good!

Daily Bible reading: Exodus 4–6; Mark 15:26–47
