Well right now I am hoping for one of those swift weather changes. It has warmed up to 23 degrees this morning. That is ten degrees higher than it was all day yesterday. By the weekend, spring temps will be back so that is why I posted this sweet tea photo! It is true that we in the south are not equipped for many days of cold weather. I am very thankful that we did not lose our power. Our gas logs have helped keep us cozy and we have plenty of food and hot beverages.
I know many are really suffering and my heart goes out to them. Today is Ash Wednesday....the countdown to Easter. I am ready for some time of self reflection, prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Praying for all my blog friends today and especially for Terri at Your Friend From Florida. She lost her dear Joe yesterday. I have been a long time reader of Terri's blog and I felt as if I knew both Joe and Terri. Another reminder that life is fleeting and I think we all take that for granted. I am so thankful for the promise of eternal life.
