Snow Won't Keep Me Home

It's snowing. They're calling for 4-5 inches today. The weatherman said it wouldn't start before 11 AM. Last night they said 9 AM. They were both wrong. It started at 7 AM. Last night I finally got the ice scraped off my windows so I could go to church this morning. I really should have worn my boots. There wasn't a lot on the car when I left, but there was at least an inch covering the car when I left church this morning. It felt good to be back. I know I only missed one week, but it felt like forever when I walked in this morning. No, snow won't keep me home when the church doors are open. I also found there is someone who lives only a couple blocks from me. She told me to let her know if I ever need a ride to church again. She's part of the music ministry so needs to be an hour early. I told her that was fine. So, if this car doesn't cooperate in the future, I have a ride to church. The only thing I worried about through the service was whether I remembered to turn on the crockpot. I made a roast. Not to worry. I could smell it as soon as I opened the door to the building. It's darn good too. Though I should have waited at least another hour as the potatoes aren't 100% done yet or the carrots but they're enough to eat it. Yum! It's always a blessing to be in God's house. I also got my hugs. Despite the weather, there were a lot of people there, and even some that shouldn't have been. If you pray, pray for the nation of Haiti which is on high alert and sent a high-security message to the missions team due to leave on Friday night. They were told not to go. There is a lot of unrest in that tiny country right now. That's what's happening here. I just took the picture. It's coming down steady. It's light snow, so easy to shovel.

The roads are slippery, but if you go slow, it's good.

I'm glad things are back to normal. Yes, it's good to know I'll still get to church if the car decides it doesn't want to run. I'm planning to get it tuned up this week, if possible. Thank you for the prayers for Haiti.

Thank you. It felt good to be back. I hadn't either until I got to church and saw he was here instead of there.

That's good that the snow won't keep you stuck inside! Just hope that the roads weren't too awful!

It is really terrible when the weather is too hot and too cold. But thankfully you have a very nice neighbor who offered you a free service to the church.

Glad that you are back home safe and warm and eating delicious food. I heard something was going on in Haiti right now, but do not have too much details.

I'm glad you got it scrapped off, and that someone said that they'd help you get to church when it's needed. That was very kind of them. Mmm roast and potatoes! Such a great winter meal! Hope we can get a roast soon. P.s Snow pictures are the best pictures!!
