Baby, it's Cold Outside - Meyer

For those of you who don't know, "Baby, it's Cold Outside" is a song written by Frank Loesser in 1944, and recorded by Dean Martin in 1959. The song makes an apt title for my blog post at this time of the year as the temperature is dipping down into the 30's (below that is).

It's still not as cold as it was the day I took a picture out of our Balmertown window and the temperature was minus 44 Celsius, which is minus 47.2 Fahrenheit. I used the photo for the back cover of my book, Get Lost! which is a Christmas story for age 8-12.

We've also got a LOT of snow - we got 2 feet in one day (that's 60 cm for all you metric people).

Recently, the Lord has been speaking to me about living in the moment. I tend to always be thinking ahead (worrying about this or that) instead of just relaxing and enjoying the day. My recent walk in the snow was a time to just relax and enjoy God's beautiful creation.

Dorene, that's capital "C" cold -- and it's still fall for a week! Today I was out walking a neighbourhood community trail alongside a creek in the glen.
The weather was beautiful and crisp, and yet barely below freezing.
My thought was much the same as yours -- set aside the many concerns that constantly clamour for attention, and enjoy the serenity of the moment and give thanks to God, surrounded by the beauties of nature.
(Hmm. In view of yesterday's tragic shootings in Connecticut, prayerful thoughts for the families and community couldn't stay away for long -- nor should they.)
