Oh Well!



Saturday? Too snowy for me, especially, to travel to Tom's company's Christmas party and freezing rain was forecast for the trip home Sunday morning. Tom contacted a couple friends, choosing to play-up the Debra Fell on Monday card rather than the weather, which was fine by me.

So we stayed within the safety of home and had a calm, relaxing time.

From the red couch I'd glance out the big window framing all that cold white snow and treacherous ice, then return to our delivered Chinese food lunch, candles burning in the fireplace and movies. Oh, the contentment wafting in and around our hearts. Seriously. 

I'm all for taking some new risks as we age, but traveling over the icy New York thruway when you don't absolutely have to is not one of those risks, especially when you've recently fallen and have a husband who's often tripped in the best and brightest of times.

This weekend, Grace walked and spread her peace everywhere and all was well with our souls.

I'm glad you used wisdom and stayed home. I'm doing that more and more. I must admit that I'm wondering what God is trying to teach me. Patience maybe? It's been another rough week and I'm very tired. Many blessings on you and yours my friend. Stay warm and dry.
Blessings,
Betsy

Betsy--praying this week will be better for you! I think God is especially reminding me all about contentment lately. How it increases joy. I hope I'm learning that. heh.

Clarice--It really was! :)

Thanks, Ladies! Blessings, Debra
