Some thoughts, lessons, and/or reflections from the day:

  • The overnight snowfall was very light so there wasn’t a lot of work I needed to do outside this morning.  That suited me just fine as it was very cold.
  • The ice melt residue does a good job of keeping the walks clear, but it’s not so good at staying outside.
  • The floors needed extra attention this morning but by the time I left at the end of the day it didn’t look like I had done anything to them.
  • Just because the things we do don’t seem to last as long as we would like doesn’t mean they aren’t worth doing.
  • I am thankful that God’s mercies are new each morning . . . we would all be in trouble if He decided He was tired of cleaning.
  • Once the building was ready, my workday consisted of maintenance issues, research, and continued prep for the prayer ministry representation at the Christian Camp Leaders Conference.
  • God’s timing is always right.  I had two “random” messages today from people who wanted to let me know they were encouraged by things I had shared with them at a conference during the past year.
  • By the time the day was done, I had registered to have a prayer ministry display at three additional camp conferences and a Christian convention.
  • The sun eventually made an appearance after being hidden by clouds for several days in a row . . . that made it look nice outside even though the temperature hasn’t warmed up much yet.
  • By early afternoon the sun had drawn a few birds out to brave the frigid cold in a search for food.
  • With the sun out, we decided to take a family excursion to search for snowy owls after work.
  • We didn’t find any owls, but we were able to photograph a couple deer out in a meadow and an amazing sunset over Lake Michigan.
  • Sometimes we miss incredible things simply because they weren’t what we were looking for.
  • I find greater enjoyment in life if I keep my eyes open to what God is doing even if it is different from what I’m looking for Him to do.
  • Today’s photo is of one of my afternoon visitors at work.  I guess he was cleaning house as he would completely disappear inside the tree and then keep popping out to discard wood chips and stuff from inside.
