We did not get to go visit my parents. With the snow we had in our part of the country, the westbound interstate we needed to travel was still closed as of noon Thursday.  I started organizing this weekend with all my siblings last October.  There are 7 kids in my family and 6 of us were to be in Arkansas to celebrate my parent’s birthdays (87 & 88) and the 66th wedding anniversary – with two siblings coming from California.  I don’t know why I am not supposed to be there, but I am trusting that there must be a reason. 
I took these pictures of my house when I went for my walk Thursday morning.  I tried to take some other pictures on my walk, but the camera didn’t want to work.  I don’t know why.  Can you believe all this snow???  If I were in Colorado skiing, it would be different.  But I am not skiing…I have been shoveling.  Thankfully, I have a home to live in and be warm.  Again, I am disappointed that I didn’t get to go visit my family.  Just another time that I do not get to know the reason something is happening.  I have so much for which to be thankful and I am trying to focus on that.
Lord, thank you for the many gifts you have given me.  Thank you for the time that I do not understand the reasoning behind things, but help me learn from these things.  Help me to have faith that you know best and are the one in control.  Please give my family that is travelling a safe journey.  Thank you for my parents and the long lives they have had.
