This morning dawned clear and cold, unusual for Washington, even in January. We’re having a cold snap — that is, it sometimes falls below freezing. I know, this is nothing compared to weather in the Midwest or Northeast, but it feels cold to us.

A bunch of folks from our small group Bible study painted with us, but since I don’t have permission to post their pictures, I’ll just show pictures of my own children and pretend we did all the work.

“Um, David, I think you missed a spot.
