For those of you readers who are from part of the country that receive snow regularly during the winter months, you might want to skip the first part of this, or else you might start laughing at me.
Have you ever wondered if God intentionally makes you learn to like things?
It’s a known fact among those that know me that I despise snow. Being raised a farm girl, being out in the cold and wet to feed livestock was just never my cup of tea. I also totaled a car on the ice when I was 17, so I prefer a winter with no snow or ice! However, my boys have been praying for snow, and I’ve been praying for moisture for our dry ground so that my cows can actually have grass to eat. And guess what God sent? You guessed it: snow and ice!
I admit, it was nice to have a white Christmas, especially since this is only the second time in my 34 years that I can remember having one.
It also brought a very welcome paid day off for my husband. In times past, he would have not received a paid bad-weather day, but God provided a better job, for which we are so thankful. The boys and I have certainly enjoyed having him home for 5 days straight.
If you’ve read my blog very long you probably know that I do data-entry work from home on occasion for a Certified Public Accountant (ahh, I love the fact that someone invented the technology to allow me to do so!). The work is very sporadic, but it always seems to come at just the right time, so I have no doubt that it’s God’s provision. Even though we do not go overboard at Christmas on gifts, there is still an increase in spending this time of the year. So a few weeks ago when the CPA called to say he’d have a job for me the end of Christmas week, I was extremely excited.
This job has now grown into a job that will require me to go to the place of business tomorrow and Friday. That means I will not be doing any blogging during the day, but hopefully each evening I can share a few deals with you. Please bear with me, next week things should get back on track!
