Day 47 of my Journey

Psalm 106:8 Give praise to the Lord for his kindness, for his wonderful deeds toward men.

Even on a gray winter day, nature's display is rewarding

I talked to a friend on the phone today who was on Long Island for a business meeting and, shall we day, not really enjoying the winter weather. The temperature this morning on Long Island, calculated with the wind chill factored in, was -2 degrees. Now, those of us who live in Central New York would agree that’s cold, but it wouldn’t be a really big deal. My friend, despite being raised in CNY, now lives in Florida and he wasn’t really prepared for below zero temps.

I had called him to brag about our bright, sunny, warm (33 degrees) day that showcased all the beauty our winters can put on display. He wasn’t buying it.

"Give praise to the Lord for his kindness...."

I literally pray for days like this and I hope the attached photos explain why. The first was taken a couple weeks ago, when it was cold and gray. The second was taken this afternoon. Both will stay in my collection, but I bet I show the second one more often.

“Give praise to the Lord for his kindness, for his wonderful deeds toward men.”
