Over a month too early for me. But, we northern tundra folk didn’t get it near as bad as some others. Guess this early cold wave caught most the entire country by surprise! Please pray for those who are living outside in these elements. Help them if you are able. That’s what we are taught by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. ♥ Streim
“Every man according as he purposes in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7

Ecclesiastes 3:1-6 “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up; A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away;” May whatever season you’re experiencing in your life, may it lead you to God the Father through the Savior Jesus Christ. ♥ Streim
USA Today — December 11, 2013 reports
There’s cold, and then there’s Antarctica cold. How does a frosty reading of 135.8 degrees below zero sound? Based on remote satellite measurements, scientists recently recorded that temperature at a desolate ice plateau in East Antarctica. It was the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth, though it may not get that recognition in the official record book. A NASA satellite measured that temperature in August 2010; on July 31 of this year, another bone-chilling temperature of -135.3 degrees was recorded.
James 1: 2-6 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
If you are in the middle of a cold, frozen tribulation period in your life… thank your Father and Lord Jesus for the divine magnificent love “preparing you for Glory”. Sending you blessings in spite of being in a tribulation of deep freeze. 🙂 ♥Streim
