I am tired of Winter!
It should be over
But all that aside
When I got up this morning and realized church was cancelled
Because of the ICE and SLEET
I didn’t want to miss church
I didn’t want to miss the relevant Word that we would consume together
I wanted to see friends
I didn’t want to be cooped up…again!
I opened up the kitchen window curtains as I made breakfast
And there it was
Watching tiny flakes of snow swirling to the ground
Gave me a sense of Peace
And I stood there for a bit
Even tho I am tired of Winter
I enjoyed those tranquil moments
My mind went immediately to an episode of Andy Griffith
The one where the traveling preacher “rushed” through town
His sermon of the day was “What’s Your Hurry”!
Enjoy the journey
Relax in the peace and quiet
Take in a band concert
Make homemade ice cream
Enjoy some fresh baked cookies
Work a puzzle
Read a book
Watch out the window at the falling snow
Secure in the love of our heavenly Father
Find Peace in our circumstance
Spring WILL come
Winter won’t stay forever
Rest in that fact
New Living Translation (NLT)
A Time for Everything
3 For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
2 A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest.
3 A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up.
