Let the Cold stay Outside

today is a cold, blustery day that conjures up images of Winnie the Pooh 

the sky in the north has been very dark... promising more of the same

the trees bend and the snowflakes swirl with no place to land

that's all outside.....where it should be....

Inside there are candles glowing and hot chili simmering.....

children laughing and scuffling and....arguing???

and a sore throat is throbbing....and body aching.....and mood is darkening......


not here.
not inside.

let the cold winds blow outside.......keep the heart fires warm inside.......

as it should be

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.  For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV
