God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

SNOW!!!!!

2.  Refrain from wicked, idle, & unclean thoughts.  "Keep your heart with all diligence" (Proverbs 4:23).  For whatever you allow your thoughts to be, your speech, your conduct, & your entire way of life will be the same.


3.  Think often on the four last things: on death, of which there is nothing more certain; on Judgment Day, of which there is nothing more terrible; on hell, for there is nothing more unbearable; & on heaven, for there is nothing more joyful.  He who often thinks on these things will shun innumerable sins & be diligent in true godliness.

Good, great, wonderful, excellent morning!!!  Yesterday I posted about the joys of autumn.  Well, as wonderful as autumn is, it doesn't hold a candle to winter!!!  Look what I woke up to this morning!!!



Snow!!!  In central Kentucky!!!  On October 2nd!!!  True, just a dusting (this is usually what our snow looks like ... as though God gave one of the angels a can of talcum powder & had him shake it a bit around the area) but snow nonetheless!!!  I'm sorry to say I missed it falling down.  I woke up at 5 a.m. but talked myself into going back to sleep.  When I opened my eyes, this is what I saw   : )

snow [snoh] noun:  big, fat, fluffy flakes of Prozac falling from the sky

To paraphrase a bit, "Things go better with snow!"

There is no way depression would come a-knockin' at your door when there is snow outside!  There's just no way!  

Happy, happy, joy, joy!  Snow-snow-snow!!!

I do realize it will be short-lived (temps are supposed to go into the 60s today & the 70s will be closely following) but it's here today!  Hooray, hooray!

Shirlee my friend, you know how to bust a girl's bubble!!(wink) I was just as thrilled to wake this morning and have chill bumps from the coolness in the house. Brought out my flannel robe as I got out of bed, grabbed a cup of hot coffee and then,, I read YOU have snow. Now I feel deprived. But so glad for you as I know you love cold weather. Let that cold stuff kill down that grass and there you have it a double treat. You won't have to mow. It looks so pretty out your door. I would be excited too. Hey that little bit would probably close schools here in the south. You have a great day my friend

Yay for snow! We usually would have had ours by now. But not yet. We did have our first frost a couple weeks ago.
