There is a cold advisory tonight for the region I live in:
…VERY COLD WIND CHILL…
UNSEASONABLY COLD TEMPERATURES COMBINED WITH WINDS OF 10 TO 20
MILES AN HOUR WILL RESULT IN LOW WIND CHILL READINGS THROUGH THE
NIGHT AND INTO THE MORNING. THE COLDEST WIND CHILL WILL RANGE FROM
AROUND ZERO TO 8 BELOW ZERO. PEOPLE VENTURING OUTDOORS SHOULD TAKE
APPROPRIATE PRECAUTIONS AGAINST THE COLD.
And I think of all the homeless people or those that don’t have the wherewithal to heat their homes. Sometimes the warmest place for children is in school. The warmest place for an adult may be a convenience store, a grocery store, library, or restaurant. A snow day is so hard for some children because they go home to cold dwellings and no food.
Lets pray for them and for those in such need no matter where we live. And perhaps the Lord would now have us do something in one way or another. Are we doing what we can? We must now and throughout our lives.
Sometimes we think we have little to be thankful for when really we have so much.
May the God of peace and love protect you and be your refuge.
