Living in Minne”snow”ta, I expect bad weather. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, we had a lot of heavy, wet snow. I confess that after getting over 50” of snow last February (plus more the rest of the winter), I did not look forward to snow this winter. So, in order to remember thankfulness this week, I had to do a lot of praying.
I enjoy having snow on the ground in the winter. The ground looks prettier – and let’s face it, who doesn’t like a white Christmas? It is the difficulty of clearing the snow from my driveway that I don’t like. It can be hard to do.
When I encounter tasks like snow removal, that cause me difficulties, I spend time in prayer. I have to admit, clearing my driveway at the end of a hard day can be therapeutic. I can burn calories and negative emotions in the same shovel swing.
We know in this life there will be things that attack our attitude of gratitude. We know from the Bible and many life blessings, that God is good.
God is so good.
