I had to start a fire in the stove this morning because it was chilly which reminded me that I will be doing this for many months to come :(
I am trying very hard to be content. This time of year is gorgeous. From the changing of the leaves to the geese honking and flying south. BUT I know what is next and I KNOW that I don't like it.....
OK, so how can I be thankful? Even though I dread the coming cold and snow.
Well, I have a beautiful house my husband built for me, clothes to wear and more than enough food to eat. My family loves me and those who no longer live here actually want to talk with me at least once a week. My church family is wonderful. Most importantly God knows me better than anyone else and STILL loves me.
Thankfully I'm reminded that all this here is just temporary. I have an eternal home in heaven. But for now, I must "bloom where I am planted". I will try, with God's help, to do just that :)
