WE are being SLAMMED with SNOW... LOTS and lots of snow... we've been shovelling for days now, and there is still no end in sight. It's also very cold (minus 30 degrees C and colder with the wind chill).

Yet, we are not alone and abandoned... the Snow Fairy has come to help us in our hour of need, and of course I knew I must share the blessing with all of my Spark friends with similar needs.

So, you have been chosen to receive the blessing of the Snow Fairy. The Snow Fairy can bring you good fortune for one whole year. May YOU be blessed by his good deeds.....

...And NO, THIS is not my darling husband... he's been making me swear to tell people that. I can't imagine why he would think they would see any resemblance.... This snow fairy is so much shorter than my husband!

I simply COULD NOT resist sharing this with all of you here! I've been sniggering over this image ALL day. It DOES make shovelling snow so much easier!!!

On the off-chance that at this point you're completely offended by the contents, I ask you to please discuss this with me before you report it to the Spark powers that be. Truly, I find this uproariously funny, but if I've offended anyone, I will remove it - no harm, no foul!

To all my Spark nears and dears (you all know who you are), I am FINE... thank you for hanging in here with me. It means everything to me.

As always, every one of you remains in my prayers... may you find peace within and all around you. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content. May the presence of Christ settle into your bones and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

May today and every day bring to you a ridiculous abundance of whatever you need. May all your concerns, struggles, anxieties and fears fall like ashes as you rise on eagle's wings, SOARING above all that would hinder you along this tremendous adventure of being and becoming all you are created to be. May the grace of God simply "overtake" you moment by moment. May the joy and victory of the risen Lord be yours in a very personal way... may you always be overwhelmed by the grace of God, rather than by the cares of life! AMEN.

Much love &
{{{{{{{{{ HUGS }}}}}}}}}

...Because you never know when your body will have to do overtime with a shovel!

  Well, I can guess something about the image from the comments. I wouldn't be offended. Hey, cold weather and lots of snow means we'd better laugh or we're in big trouble.
Sorry to say it was in the 50's here today. But, it's going to get to about minus 8 or so tonight.
God bless and stay warm and enjoy the snow fairy!

    Personally I'm glad that snow fairy didn't show up here - I want my snow fairy to be much younger & "buffer"!!!

    I love it, hahahaha!!
I don't have to shovel, but could you send the Snow Fairy to help me clean the snow off my car which I have been having to do every time I want to move it?
I can just picture him in my parking lot, or the parking lot at church, lol. emoticon
