Favorite Things, January 4, 2015

It's often the so called "little" things which make life so pleasant. 

One of my themes for 2015 blogging is "Favorite Things".

Yesterday, we had some snow. Not enough to have blown out with a snow blower, but enough to need to be shoveled before the bigger snowfall hits us today. The neighbor who so kindly shoveled our walks and driveway shovels so nicely, like he's enjoying it and possibly thinking happy thoughts. Not everyone shovels that way - with a nice, gentle, even rhythm. Some people sound so... uptight, violent, and nervous. One of the great pleasures of wintertime is listening to snow being either shoveled or even blown. So much nicer than summertime when the lawn mowers sound so angry and noisy!

Another pleasant thing is the comforting sound of our furnace in the cold of winter. I am so grateful to have central heating, after having lived in a place with electric heat for 10 years. A Lennox furnace finely tuned is like a musical instrument, and in my opinion, makes lovely music. Music to read books by, with a nice and fuzzy gray and white cat at one's feet purring. A lot less dust with a good furnace than when one has electric heaters, too!

Not much else to say right now. Struggling with tummy virus, but it beats getting the influenza which is rampaging through town.

I shall return. Just wanted to drop in and let everyone know I'm still praying for you daily. I mean that.

Much love in Jesus! Happy and Blessed Feast of the Epiphany!!
