This Too Shall Pass ~ Enduring the Cold

A snowy scene from Colorado

A snowy scene from Colorado

I have finally returned to my blogging after the holidays.  Some of you may have thought that I got lost in a blizzard or something.  I did not get lost, but was just incredibly busy from traveling and recuperating.  Travel is never easy on my spine.

We spent Christmas with our family in Colorado this year.  I took this photo the morning we left.  Although the mountains always have snow this time of year, the Denver area was fairly dry.  Since I didn’t make it up to the hills for a ski trek with my husband and son, this was the most snow that I saw.

Even though scanty, I got excited about the snow, which fascinated some of our family out there.  I lived in Colorado for several years, so it is not as if I have never seen it before.  However, now that I live down South, I rarely get to make snow angels.

I miss the glittering beauty and hushed serenity of snow.  What I don’t miss, though, is the cold.

I realize that compared to much of the nation, I have no reason to complain about the cold.  For those of you up North, with temps below zero, I extend my sincere sympathies and prayers that you stay warm.

We are going to get our fair share of the cold this week in Mississippi.  Time for hot tea and layers of warm clothes.  And for remembering that this too shall pass!

“From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind,
and cold from the scattering winds of the north.”
Job 37:9

Blessings as you try to stay warm.
*P.S. No promises on how often I will blog, since I still can’t seem to snap out of the post-holiday fog, but at least I am back!  And I look forward to reading your posts again.

    Glad you’re back! Missed you! It’s warmer today. A balmy 35 degrees. Our driveway is a sheet of ice after last night’s icy rain, but I’ve already had fun ‘ice skating’ while taking the dog out. [chuckle]

    Glad you’re back, dear Sue. I’m not a fan of the cold either, but God is faithful and my toes remain toasty. =0) Here’s to continued warmth for you and yours also. Amen.

    So glad you are back! I did miss you, dear friend.
    It’s -19 (that’s a minus before the number 🙂 ) I am praying for the homeless … Please join me to pray for those w/o homes and those who have homes that have a hard time keeping up with this painful cold! School is out (maybe for a couple of days) … that’s my favorite part of all of this 🙂 … looking forward to reading your posts again!

    If you’re facing away from me, “Glad to see your back!” if you’re facing towards me, “Glad to see you’re back!” LOL. Missed you! We’re getting heavenly raindrops here today with temperatures near 50 degrees. Just two days ago we were at minus 30. WOW what a ride! Blessings, friend 🙂
