But, I can admit that when it falls nice and white and heavy and coats everything, it's beautiful! I can be thankful that God gave us such an amazingly beautiful and diverse creation. And He gave us such a great visual of His love and grace and mercy and forgiveness covering our ugly hideous sins.
I can be thankful that I have a warm home to live in, and that I don't have to live outside in all that "beautiful" snow. I can be thankful I can warm up a cup of hot cocoa anytime I want while I throw on my slippers to keep my toes warm, or pop a bag of popcorn and sit in my comfy living room while I watch that snow fall.
I can be thankful that this is ALL I have to deal with, as I think of the recent typhoon victims in the Philippines -- and Alexis, the little boy from the Philippines I used to sponsor through Compassion International and who is now a young man and I have no idea where he is or if he is OK.
It's all about perspective folks.
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever." -- Psalms 107:1
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. And if you have a little extra to be thankful about, how about hopping over to Compassion International, www.compassion.com, and donating to their disaster relief fund -- or any other reputable site you choose. We truly do have a lot to be thankful for this year!
