Tis true! I do have everything I need. I sometimes forget that I am so blessed.
Prayers are not always answered as we would want them to be, but they we do receive a response in God’s own precious time.
I have been longing for Spring and for camping season to begin once more. I knew the minute that I closed up my little place in the woods last fall, that it was going to be one long winter. The thing about memory is that we do tend remember the bad stuff and I cannot recollect much good that ever happened to me during winter.
Oh there are the cozy nights inside with the candles lit and a good book to read…but I can also do that in the summer. There is Christmas which is always brings a family gathering and lots of gifts, but we do that in the summertime also.
I am and do thank the good Lord for his blessings of warm clothing, a warm house and a car that has heat that gets me back and forth to work every day, but I haven’t yet thanked Him for winter. I guess I’d better work on that one for sure.
If anyone has some good things to say about winter, I’d sure appreciate hearing about them, I do need all the help I can get.
Oh, by the way, it is colder here and supposed to snow again today.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Is it possible for the rose to say,
'I will give my fragrance to
the good people who smell me,
but I will withhold it from the bad?'
Or is it possible for the lamp to say,
'I will give my light to the good people in this room,
but I will withhold it from the evil people'?
Or can a tree say,
'I'll give my shade to the good people
who rest under me,
but I will withhold it from the bad'?
These are images of what love is about.
Anthony De Mello
