Snow Blanket

Twas a couple of days after Christmas and all around the camp was a beautiful blanket of snow that lit up the place like a lamp.     Well..... I had to make it rhyme.  :)

Snow was slow in coming this year, but now we have about a foot of glistening snow and plenty for dog sledding, skiing or having a snowball fight.  It sure does brighten everything up with the pine trees heavily laden with white puffs of snow and makes it feel more like Christmas time. 

I realize some of our Wisconsin guests, or maybe most of them probably did not have a white Christmas due to the unseasonably warm weather, so I thought I would send along some pictures from Canada for you to remember what it is like and enjoy it with us.

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!!

We want to wish all our guests a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.  May it be a year filled with exciting adventure, wonderful surprises, and an experiential knowledge of the unconditional, unsurpassing, matchless, abounding love of Jesus Christ our Lord. 

John and Joanna have been busy training the sled dogs, first with fourwheelers and now that we have some snow, with sleds.  Her first race is coming up the middle of January in Northhome, MN.  The last time she raced it in 2014, she won it.  She's hoping to come out on top again this year.  But every year the dogs in the team changes a bit, so one never knows WHAT will happen.  That's what makes it so interesting.

We got about eight inches of snow a month ago, got warm weather and it all melted.  Now we have about 8 inches again and hoping for more.  Some of you probably don't have any snow with the warm weather so far this winter.  It really makes for a beautiful Christmas to have the heavily snow laden trees and the pure white blanket of snow on the ground.  But, whether you have snow or not, we pray you have God's peace in your hearts as you begin 2016.
