A thought about the cold and snow.
Is it cold? Yes.
Is it snowy? Yes.
Is it inconvenient? Yes.
Do we live in Northern Indiana? Yes.

The city is keeping up with the streets as best they can. If you don’t like it, apply for the job and do it better.

Salt does not melt ice at sub zero temperatures.

If we switch our focus to what is good then all of the goodness pour from us.

We all have our struggles, let us not allow the weather conditions to bring us down or seep into our every day interactions. Easier said than done at times, but it is possible.

See if a neighbor needs anything from the store. Tip your pizza guy a bit more for braving the elements. Help someone load their car at the grocery. Being kind makes the day better. Share a smile, pay it forward at Starbucks drive thru, be kind to the cashier. It doesnt take much to change the mood of the day.

An hour ago I was a bit overwhelmed. I stopped by the side of the road and told Jesus to take the proverbial wheel. He did. My anxiety dissipated and all is well. I shifted
my perspective and asked for help.

If this were April or May it would be one thing. We need to remember where we live.

Indiana. In January.

Be a blessing,

M
