From Milk and Honey Farm in Winter

This is funny. When I came down stairs this morning, Bob looked at me and said,”It warmed up”. It is minus twenty below zero.”

This is not funny. Our windchill report is minus 40 degrees below. Flesh can freeze when it is this cold.  I have been sick for over a week, the well is frozen in the barn, and Bob has to haul water from the basement for the animals.

Out by the barn, the big dogs are rolling in the snow. I think this is why they are called “GREAT” Pyrenees.  Nothing much seems to bother them.  I am feeling small and thankful.  The old farm house is warm, and the coffee is good. Chicken soup is simmering on the stove.   I am wearing long johns under the flannel nightgown and heavy robe. I continue resting, wrapped up in a sheep wool comforter.

It is harsh, but it will get better.  The  well will get fixed, and I will heal.  It seems that the Lord is telling me to “Let what you see, point you to the need, and cause you to pray for others.”  Today, I will pray for the homeless.
