This morning when I noticed that everything was white with snow and ice, I could only see the beauty of it, Even though I would stay inside in the warm apartment, I realized that many people would have to brave the snow and ice to go to work.
On days like this I sometimes browse through “stuff”, cleaning out and throwing away useless things that I have kept. One thing that I discovered recently was a journal that I had kept while I was in a Nursing Home inFrankfort. I had just had shoulder surgery, and in about eight days I fell and broke my ankle. With my shoulder replacement in a sling and my ankle in a cast, the Nursing Home was the only way. This was a very humbling experience! Going from “up and about” to a “dead stop” was almost more than I could handle. Proverbs 3:5-6 came to my mind and it was these verses that helped me through this. I didn’t understand why this had happened, but knew that God would be with me,
Since that time I have had to go through other things that I did not understand but He has always been there with me. The words of Proverbs 3:5-6 often come to my mind and I know that….”Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path”… will lead me through the tough times.
The snow and the ice are inconvenient but it lets us know that God is the Creator of everything and He is in control.
