Cold Toes……….

Christmas is literally days away.

Some areas are experiencing  blizzard like conditions……

Last night it was around 30 degrees here, which is super duper cold.

I went to bed with toes like ice.

My teeth were literally chattering.

I finally had to get up and adjust my “tightwad” heat from 65 degrees to 70.

I then snuggled into my crisp, clean sheets and under my soft down comforter.

Thoughts began to run through my head of how much I had left to do for Christmas……….

The upcoming wedding…….


My toes were slowly warming as my list was being formed on my laptop of items “to do” before Christmas arrived………..

I began scrolling through these beautiful snowy photo’s that I captured on a visit to my “Buckeye” sisters and the Man of the Cloth’s homes last year with Challenger.

Just looking at them reminded me of the icy cold outside besides the fact that my toes felt like they were beginning to form into ice cubes.

And it hit me….

To even have the ability to make a “list”………

Humbling……..

To even be able to adjust my heat up……..

A blessing……..

To sleep in a clean, warm bed……..

Almost too much to even grasp.…….

To think cold toes were an inconvenience…..

Embarrassing…..

There are so many right now shivering……..freezing….hungry…….

There are children with no food……no ‘list’…….no hopes of even having a “Christmas” in the sense of what we have made Christmas into.

He came in a lowly manger……..carpenter dad…….virgin unwed mother……

They were homeless when He was born.

And this season is not about me.

It is about Him.

What a reminder of my selfishness and pride.


Forgive me when I whine.

It is Your birthday…….funny that I haven’t wondered what to give to You……..

Cold toes…….

What a humbling reminder.

Think my list needs revised.

Love,

Me
