This weather has been crazy. I don’t think the schools have had a full week in weeks! I’m tired of shoveling and scraping and salting and freezing. God, why can’t we get a break and have a few days of clear skies and 40 degree temperatures? Then, I think of the pictures and interviews on TV of refugees from violence and of victims of abuse and … . OK, God, I have food and people who care about me. I mostly have electricity. I have coats and gloves and boots. I am safe. Thank you, God, for all my many blessings. Please keep my eyes open for the chances I have to help those without those blessings. Amen.
