When we’re in a blizzard, where do we find our peace? Here are a few thoughts amidst a traffic crawl in 19 degree (minus 7 wind chill factor) wind and snow. (Video 2:46 min.)
What are some ways you’ve found to reframe a storm?
Not everyone’s storm is my storm.
Fran, I love it! You just named an ongoing storm for me – false responsibility for the outcome of others’ situations. I’m learning gradually how to rid myself of that. One snowflake at a time.
How do I reframe a storm? : “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Susan, I love that verse. I pray we grow to relax into HIS overcoming the trouble, and not our own. Somehow He works it out better!
Well done. We get snow so seldom that I find it refreshing. But I don’t have to drive in city traffic (thank God!) We used our 10 inches of snow to have a get together with my daughter’s friends and their kids. They made a sliding hill out of our driveway. I made hot chocolate, chili dogs and brownies. After warming up and eating, we headed back out to slide and play in the snow. It was a great day. Sometimes snow storms can give us a chance to escape our routine and look at life differently.
Nancey, your snow days sound like a wonderful gift from Papa! Just reading this warmed my soul.
Thanks for this, Lynn. I was fussing during this storm, because I was stranded in Vancouver, and couldn’t get home for four days. But, like you, I have His peace, and managed just fine. I’m glad the snow is gone, though, and we have our usual ever-present rain again. I’ve used that verse a lot, and I know I have His perfect Shalom, His Peace. What a savior!
