Winter Blues

I have the winter blues.  It has been sunny and warm for weeks.  It’s more like April and May around here than February.  Many people may be happy with that, but I’m a skier.  I like lots of new snow up in the mountains not sunny, warm days.  The weatherman says this horrible, sunny, warm weather is finally about to change, and not a day too soon. Hopefully we will get some nice, cold rain down here in the valley so there will be lots of new snow up in the mountains.  At least the Olympic spectators in Vancouver are happy and dry.  Their having lots of fun in the streets of Vancouver.

Isn’t it amazing how discontent we can become when things don’t go exactly the way we want them to go.  The same often holds true with our relationship with God.  When our life isn’t the way we want it to be we often blame God.  We usually don’t pause to consider that He may be using the circumstances we don’t like in order to work on our character.  In order to do something great in our life.  Do we really trust that Jesus wants the very best for us and is working in our lives to help us become the people He wants us to be?
