I love the atmosphere of a warm fireplace on a cold and snowy night, but I also love working in my garden and walking in the warmth of the sunshine. I often hear people complain about cold weather, after all, it’s not pleasant to freeze your tail off. But consider this, we lived in Florida for several years early in our marriage. Florida never has really cold weather, and the result is the bugs don’t die out like they do in other areas of the country.
Just as God uses the cold weather to assist in keeping insects under control, He uses trials in our lives to keep us under control…meaning humble and dependent upon Him. So today, be thankful for cold weather, and be thankful for the benefits and lessons learned through the trails of life.the
