I'm a little chagrined. I was at work yesterday talking about the weather (we are supposed to get up to 7 inches of snow in the next couple days), doing my usual complaining about how I can't wait for spring, and God seemed to be saying something to me. I was suddenly stopped by the thought, what if I was very old, and very ill and this might be the very last winter I was alive? What if this were the last soft snowfall I would ever see? I know, it's a little morbid but lets face it, none of us know how long we have. For some people this will be their last February on earth. It seems it is easy to keep our eyes on what is to come and sometimes to just wish that what is happening in our lives right now was over. What a waste of days that is. We are all given only so many and each one is a gift. A chance to do something good. A chance to enjoy whatever we can of this little piece of time. Right now the snow is softly falling outside my window, the trees are sugar coated and, for now, it isn't muddy or grey. I guess I can be content with today and know that spring is on its way but that today, is worth celebrating too. I am warm inside my home and blessed in so many ways. Right now, today, is beautiful in its own way. This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.:>)
Thanks for all the lovely comments on my give-away. I am working on a few more fun things to add to it. I forgot to add, I will do the drawing on Sunday, March 2nd so still plenty of time to "de-lurk". Enjoy today.
