Warm Houses and Fulfilled Fridays 17 Linkup

Winter has arrived where I live.

It seems odd because last week we were in the 50’s. It snowed all day yesterday and we got somewhere between 2 and 3 inches blanketing the ground. I just looked outside, we got another 3-4 overnight.

It is so beautiful. The snow covers everything leaving behind nothing but white.

It is so quiet. People stay indoors so sounds of cars are few and far between. The snow acts as a buffer of sorts, absorbing the sounds of playing children. Even the animals hide and don’t make a peep.

It is so cold.

Every year I cannot help but enjoy the beauty, but my next thought is always of those who do not have a house. I think of those who spent the night huddled under a bridge somewhere, or shivered in a car.

I know the lucky ones were able to cram into a community shelter. Shelters that have more bodies than beds in them tonight. Shelters that do the best they can, but the demand is greater than they are able to provide.

I know that after this snowstorm we’re supposed to drop another 20 degrees. Last night will feel warm compared to this weekend. I feel for the parents who have to tell their children, “I know it is cold, snuggle in a little tighter and it will help,” knowing their is nothing they can do.

So today, on this Fulfilled Friday, I will look out my window and enjoy the beauty that God has surrounded me with while drinking my cup of coffee. I will pray and thank God for my roof and the walls around me. I’m thankful my husband has a job so we can afford to leave the heaters turned a little higher on these cold nights. Oh, I’m thankful, so very thankful for the basic things that surround me.

And I’ll pray for those that don’t have heat, warmth, or even a roof. Things I take for granted, but things that definitely make my life much more fulfilled.

The big talk in my region has been the weather. What is the weather like where you live?

    Third year of a drought in the S.F. Bay Area. Nice and sunny with temps in the 60’s.
