Snow…snow…snow…We’re getting only the 3-5″ instead of the 6-8″ originally forecasted. At least that’s what the weathermen say. It’s blowing like crazy and I’m not so sure they have the right amounts, but we’ll see. They’re calling this the storm of the century…something like 2100 square miles are to get 12″ or more, or was it a stretch 2100 miles long. I don’t know…need to get my facts straight. Jon over in Muscatine is expecting 16-20 inches with high winds. Downtown Chicago to get 2 feet with high winds. Crazy.
Anyway, I’m thankful for a warm house and electricity. Very grateful to know that everyone in my family is safely tucked away tonight.
Thought for the day
“But He’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love. And don’t take yourself too seriously–take God seriously.” Micah 6:8
God really is not so complicated. I mean He’s not so complicated in what He asks of us. He’s beyond understanding and all that we can imagine, but in His dealings with us He keeps it pretty simple. That’s a good thing since He compares us to sheep more than to any other thing. Sheep are pretty dumb…they follow each other, over a cliff, if that’s where they’re led. They are notorious for being stupid. So God keeps it simple…do what is fair, be compassionate and loyal, take God seriously, don’t take yourself seriously. You better learn to laugh at yourself…it makes it much easier.
