an excellent storm

I am sure that this cold snap has caused people problems, cost businesses money and is inconvenient in any number of ways... but, I consider it an excellent storm.
Vern's favorite spot...mine too!

Our home is quiet except for the loud crackling of the logs in the fireplace.

Our stomachs are full of crock-pot chicken wings and fresh salads and warm tapioca.

And my stress level is 0 as I blog next to our fireplace, the location that Vern has dedicated himself to!

God's weather has brought things to a stand still in some areas and at least a slower pace here, and I'm actually grateful.

What does it take to slow me down, to set me by a fire, to cook at home and write of my gratefulness?

Is the only way I obediently rest - when mother nature forces her hand or am I becoming smarter and more obedient?

I'd like to think the latter.

As I write tonight I praise my heavenly father for what surrounds me, for more than enough food, for warmth, for a husband of many years that I still adore and for His never ending love for me (even when I'm not as mindful of Him).

An excellent storm has brought a calm to my night and I could seriously
get used to this!
