It was a tough year, but I made it !!!
And thus ends 2010.
Like Solomon I have looked back and taken inventory. This is the sum of it.
Back in 1965 the Byrds sang these words and everyone whether they knew it or not memorized Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ~
Yes everyone walks through seasons. No one gets a special notice saying they are exempt from falls and winters and can bask in spring and summer their entire life. Even tropical paradise has hurricanes and tsunamis.
So what does one do when the winds keep blowing and the temperature doesn't warm up? Grab another blanket!
Blankets have come in all sizes and colors for me.
I have no idea what 2011 will hold. I may have to bundle up awhile longer, or I may be headed into a sweet spring, but this one thing I know. My Heavenly Father has an endless supply of blankets that He will provide. And when spring and summer come again, I have a keepsake cabinet that I will store all my blankets in.
If you find yourself in one of those seasons where you need a blanket, I pray for you someone to reach in their cabinet and pull out one of their prized blankets to share. And if you know someone who looks like the chill of winter is upon them - give them one of yours.
See you all in 2011.
