Too Darned Cold!

Down go the temps!  Coldest air of the season is on the way.  Tonight, 16 below!  Today's wind chill, 35 below.

My thoughts and prayers are with the wildlife—especially the opossums and pheasants who are not native to cold weather climes.  I am so glad we decided to leave the three large brush piles until spring as they provide excellent shelter for both mammals and birds.  Fresh open water, as well as seed and corn, plus natural foodstuffs, are also available here so hopefully my outdoor friends will weather this two-day frigid spell.

Thoughts for the Work Week Ahead

Ten Commandments for a Happy Life
author unknown

   Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout.

Why is a car's windshield so large & the rear view mirror so small?
Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead and move on.

Friendship is like a book. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.

              All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.

   Old friends are gold! New friends are diamond! If you get a diamond, don't forget the gold because to hold a diamond, you always need a base of gold!

Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!

When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.

   A blind person asked St. Anthony: "Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?" He replied: "Yes, losing your vision!"

     When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.

Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it takes away today's peace.
