Warm place inside while it snows

I am saddened that so many people are having such a rough time with the snow that fell and all their issues dealing with the icy roads.  But I am very grateful for my warm house, the heat, the wood in the fireplace, our fresh food and pantry, my warm bed, my family around me, and a working Internet connection.  God has truly blessed me with these things and much, much more!  All of this snow stuff has happened on my "weekend" so I have not had to get out in the mess at all!  What a wonderful blessing :-)

Grateful for a great job

Even though the politics at my place of employment have cut me out of the loop and made me feel like I am not progressing I have a great job.  It is challenging work that keeps me on edge and excited about what I do most of the time.  I am at a place in my career where I get to develop ideas into projects that are sometimes used and I continue to try and develop the people around me. 

It is challenging work that keeps me engaged and paying attention.  I am passionate about it and enjoy what I am able to accomplish. 

Thank you, Lord, for such an awesome career!

Beautiful afternoons

Today in the middle of winter we had a high of 65 degrees!  My wife and I went for a long walk, then we sat on the front pitch with our youngest and read together.  It was beautiful! 

I am very grateful for this day!
