Cold enough for you?

February 24, 2015


Have you picked up on the fact that winter isn’t my favourite season?  As a matter of fact winter doesn’t even rank in the list of my top favourite seasons. (which just happen to be summer, summer, summer and autumn)  But it’s not just the weather, it’s having to listen to everyone gripe about the weather.  The other day someone commented on how cold it was and I replied, “Yeah it kind of feels like. . . the season between Autumn and Spring.”
When we moved to Australia I thought that I’d heard the last of negative weather comments, after all it was said that “In Queensland every day is perfect and the next one is better!”  But alas it was not to be.  People felt the same about the weather down under.  It was either too hot or too cold. (Everything is relative, too hot down there was 41 and too cold was 14)  And I wonder if our preoccupation with the weather is actually our attitude toward life, where we are never satisfied with what we have?
Paul wrote in Philippians 4:11 (NKJV)  . . . for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content:  Maybe we could add to that and in whatever province and whatever season!  Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
