Checking the weather forecast online early this Saturday I see that it will be sunny and warm today, temperature in the low 70s and tomorrow near 80. Voila, what wonderful weather after a cold spell. I'm not sure what we'll do today but I'll guarantee it will be outside. Maybe we'll take a bike hike, go to the lake for a picnic lunch or even try our luck with a little fishing. All I know is it is just one of those days that make late winter so special in North Florida. God's definitely shining His Light and Warmth on us today.
I hope wherever you might be that you have the good fortune of a wonderful day. If you're up there in the cold where you're used to it, perhaps a snowmobile ride, some ice fishing or maybe a sleigh ride. Whatever it is, enjoy the free time with those you love and, if you have little ones, cherish the moments like this. Believe me, they all grow up way to fast and those memories one day will be very important.
Dear Lord: Thank you for the weekend and for giving us leisure time to spend with family and friends. We know that family and friends are important and that we need to savor the moments that we have like these. Help us to use them wisely and appreciate them. And remind us that tomorrow, the Lord's Day, we are called to honor Thee for all that Thou hast given us, for all that we have is truly a gift from Thee. Bless us and keep us safe and prepare us to face the work-a-day world again on Monday when this respite us done. In Christ's name we ask, Amen.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.
