Well the snows truly arrived. I’ve had to cancel three meetings because I can’t get the car out of the drive. The bus driver advised Rebecca not to take the bus to work so shes at her home relaxing, and I’ve got time to get ahead of the game in preparing services etc. We were even treated to the sight of a police car stuck in the cul-de-sac snow yesterday and it had to await another vehicle to come and pull it out of the snow.
In view of the weather we’ve even banned Dad from going home; didn’t want him travelling in this. He’s now in the front room at something of a loss with himself as I’ve even banned him from walking the dog !!
I’ve uploaded two photographs of my back garden. Instead of putting the pictures on here I’ve been advised to simply give you the address for Flickr. Let me know whether you think this is better or not. Look them up http://www.flickr.com/photos/revmike1/?saved=1 Beautiful aren’t they ?
And yet when I look out of the front door all I see are beautiful blue skies and fluffy clouds. I’m reminded of a couple of things; firstly that when true adversity arrives you can always count on community to help out. Several neighbours all turned out yesterday to help push the police car and try to get him moving. Even though we didn’t succeed there was still a sense of people pulling together. Secondly, even when things are at their bleakest there are blue skies yet to come. God reassures us that he walks with us in our darkest times and he brings us through them.
God is good.
Meanwhile as you wait for the weather to improve, happy snowballing and take care.<!– Meanwhile happy snowballing and take care. http://www.flickr.com/photos/revmike1/?saved=1 // –>
