As I look out the office window snow squalls continue to settle overtop of our location, pushed by wind gusts of 47 km/hr at the moment of writing this article. We have a heater running in the bathroom attempting to thaw the pipes. The furnace was running while we were away, but the door under the bathroom sink was accidentally closed before we left not allowing the heat in get in and keep the pipes from freezing. The current temperature with wind chill is at -29.6 degrees C. I am thankful that I was able to clear the decks and driveway of snow before the squalls arrived again.

I see the potential for staying in and staying warm this evening. Matthew records the words of Jesus about the Heaven Father in Matthew 5:45. He said, “For He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” I suspect these words apply to snow as well as rain. In which case I ought to be grateful for this since it really has application to 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, “Rejoice always, {17} constantly pray, {18} in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

At the same time, it would be worth noting I am facing the situation I am, as a result of the choices I have made. I chose to live where I do, for the reasons I have determined. Therefore I must accept what comes my way as a result. I can truly say I am thankful and grateful at this moment I did not chose to live in Newfoundland, Canada. They are experiencing blizzard conditions. Winds have been in excess of 100 km/hr with heavy snow and bitterly cold temperatures.

Whatever your choices, they are impacting your life. If you do not like the outcomes, change your decisions and actions.
