I Have heard that song a lot on the radio over Christmas time, but today is the day that it is most accurate!! A balmy 8 degrees! The girls are happy about a 2 hour delay this morning, due to the weather. Being that it is only 8 degrees out right now, i don’t think 2 hours made that much difference!
So I wait til the absolute last minute to take off my cozy robe and get dressed, since robes are still not proper work attire! Ha!
As I think about how cold it is; I am thankful not just for my robe, but for my warm home! I feel sad for the ones who don’t have the warmth of a cozy place to get out of the cold, but there is something worse besides being left out in the freezing cold.
My heart aches for people with cold hearts. For the ones who have hearts that have been broken so badly that they have closed it off. It’s as frozen as ice, that no one can break. i hurt for the ones who have so much bitterness in there that they have trouble showing warmth to anyone. As a special quote says, “Bitterness is the poison that we drink ourselves, hoping to kill our enemy.” You can pile on the layers of warm clothing, but it can’t take away the coldness of your heart. You can live in a tropical place where your body is never cold, but that won’t melt the ice around your heart.
All of a sudden the frigid temps don’t sound as harsh. I can handle it and I pray for the cold hearts. I pray for a breakthrough, that they can know the true joy of letting go, forgiving and accepting people in to their walled off hearts. For we all need each other. No one should be alone.
May your heart be warm today and may the brightness of your heart radiate out to others, showing them the beauty of warmth!
