Our two – (three?) week enjoyment of decent weather has come up to an abrupt, yet expected, end. I rolled over this morning and looked at my weather app to find it was a whopping 4 degrees. Incredible. Everyone’s dream Monday morning. To make it all more satisfying, today is Groundhog Day so the groundhog does it’s thing and has declared 6 more weeks of winter (yay).
Oh well. That is what happens when you live in Kansas, you never really know what you’re going to get. Exciting yet extremely annoying. Although, let’s praise God because it has warmed up and this day is turning itself around.
Even amidst of my not-so-thrilled remarks toward the bitter cold, I am reminded of Christ’s beautiful creation. This world is beautiful! I haven’t experienced enough of the world as I long to experience. Even though, I am amazed at his masterpiece and workmanship. There is beauty all around if you choose to see it. You may not be on the beach, or live in the mountains, or roam the streets of Paris, but His creation is all around. He could have made the earth however He wanted. He cared enough to give us a beautiful temporary home. If I have that mindset, the cold and snow don’t seem too bad. Even on campus there is such beautiful trees and landscape! Find the beauty.
Today (even in the extreme cold) choose to see His beauty.
