"There ain't a cloud in the sky"

The Christmas presents have been opened, wrapping paper and bows have been thrown in the trash, left overs abound but if you're in South Florida, that is virtually the only sign of winter in sight. No snow, sleet, frost, and definitely no dreaming of a White Christmas.

Lucas and I have been blessed to spend another Christmas with my family in our "hometown" but in just a few days the vacation will be over and we will head back to the harsh and bitter cold weather of Kentucky.  We will be swapping the sunscreen, bathing suits and towels for boots, scarfs, and coats.  Our face-to-face interactions with my family will be limited to Skype dates. CrossFit WODs in the middle of the day with my favorite coach, Larissa and the girls (Jen and JBerg) will cease to exist.  Rich conversations with long time friends and our church family will be long gone.  Yet, we trust that God is up to something greater than anything we can see or feel today.  And it is precisely now that the biblical definition of faith is put into practice.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen 
-Hebrews 11:1 

"There ain't a cloud in the sky."
