Have I mentioned lately how much I hate winter? My mother says I have always hated winter but that’s not true.
There were four years that I kind of enjoyed winter. Of course, those were the four years that we spent in Australia. And the past couple of storms haven’t helped.
However, there are a couple of things to be thankful for. The first is that as we get older this will provide us with the mandatory “winter storm” story to tell our kids and grandkids.
“Why this isn’t a storm, why I remember back in the winter of ‘18……now that was a storm! The snow was clear up to the second story windows. (The depth of the snow is proportional to your age. The older you get the deeper the snow used to be.)
The second thing we have to be thankful for is that winter doesn’t last forever. Even if the groundhog was wrong, Spring will be here eventually and then comes Summer.
Our Christian life is a lot like the weather. We may not always have sunshine, but we have the promise that the rough times won’t last forever. And hopefully, we won’t have to shovel the driveways of our mansions in Heaven.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
