Sunshine Again

It was good to see the sunshine today; we've had unseasonably warm weather this past week, with some rain and lots of dampness from things sweating. So it was a good day to wash chicken house dust from the work clothes and let them dry in the breeze. Yesterday morning our temperature was 64* when we got up, then continued to drop all day. With a cold front racing toward such warmth, we expected storms, but in our area we only got strong winds for a jiffy and then rain off and on all day; however, there was a really bad tornado about 100 miles from us.

With a new year ahead, we think of how blest we are to have a good warm, dry house, clean clothes, and plenty of healthy food for our table. Some in our state are not so fortunate tonight, having lost all in the tornado early yesterday morning. Won't you remember them in your prayers tonight?


  1. well the clothes would smell good drying outside today - but it was so cold I'm surprised you could hang them without freezing!
    Happy New Year to you :)

  2. Yes, the sky is blue today, but we should not forget those who lost so much yesterday.
