Outside, my world is cold and gray. The snow is still pretty, but not nearly as pretty as when it first fell! It's cloudy, instead of bright blue and sunny. I've been trying to avoid going outside at all costs for the last few days. I'm a wimp when it comes to cold!! :) (Unless I'm skiing or doing something like that!) But inside, I am warm, and so happy I don't have to be out there!! :)
Have you read this ^ book?
If not, I highly suggest you do. It's so beautifully written, so sweet and thought provoking. I just finished it a couple of days ago, (for the second time! :)) and loved it. I decided to read it again, right away, but slowly, and stop reading every time I came to something amazing, and think about it. Most of the time I just blaze through books, and don't stop and think about things. This book is filled with beautiful quotes and things.
Here's one of the first things that caught my attention last night, just a few pages in.
The mother and her adult son are talking, while on vacation, and the son is angry because the weather is stormy. He brings up the story about the three Hebrews in the fiery furnace.
"I am afraid, Cornelius, my dear son, that you will need the furnace yourself to teach you that the will of God, even in unpleasant weather, is a thing for rejoicing in."

Well, hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!
