How things change
By week's end the Blizzard of 2011 will be nothing but a memory as warm temps are slowly turning the mountains of snow into rushing rivulets! But because the snow was so deep, it's hard to see the effect of the warmer weather except by comparisons.
We have a sign for a political candidate on our lawn which was completely buried; then I noticed I could see the slightest bit of the top peeking through. The next day three inches of color was popping out of the snow drift and now you can actually read it again. Although the ground is still covered with white there is much less of it than there used to be!
As we watch it happening outside our windows there's the realization that the same thing is happening in our hearts. Sometimes there is a blizzard and things change suddenly and drastically but so often God is working little by little; lining things up so that when the opportunity or incident comes, we are ready for it.
