2018: Page 2

Some thoughts, lessons, and reflections from the day: 

  • With an actual air temperature of negative fifteen to start the day, all the layers of clothing I could find wasn’t enough to make me want to stay outside very long.
  • It was so cold that my windows frosted over on the inside of the truck on my way to work since I wasn’t willing to stop breathing.  🙂
  • I am thankful that someone figured out building heat that moved beyond open fires, wood stoves, and coal furnaces.
  • I am even more thankful when I walk into a building and realize the heating sources are working.
  • I don’t always find what I’m looking for, but I’m definitely more likely to find it if I look than if I don’t.
  • God wants to be found, but He also says we will find Him when we seek Him with a whole heart.
  • In addition to Himself, there are a variety of things that God tells us to seek.  Some of those will be the daily topics of next week’s prayer guide.
  • Even though the air temperature was still below zero by late morning, the sun brought the cardinals out in search of their berry buffet.
  • Nearly everyone wants to be heard, but few really want to listen.
  • We often react based on perception that may or may not reflect what is actually meant.
  • Updating can be a long process, especially when you don’t really know how much updating needs done.
  • It’s amazing how warm five degrees felt when I came home compared to the minus fifteen when I left.
  • Improvement is improvement even if we are not yet where we would like to be.

    • So true! . . . “but I made a ‘resolution’ Monday and I haven’t lost any weight yet, so I don’t think it’s going to happen.” 😉
