It sometimes gets so cold you are afraid to go outside. The wind whips and cuts life a knife against your face or any uncovered area.
It feels so bitter and cruel outside that you seek shelter in the warmth.
I had picked up my son from school and had gone to the grocery store.
On our trip home I saw a family walking along side the road. I could not imagine having to weather these horrible conditions on foot.
My heart wanted to give them a ride but I’ve become wary of strangers.
I hoped their home was warm from the cold.
Often in times like these I pray for those that are less fortunate than me.
Life does not give everyone the same opportunities or chances.
So when I arrived home I felt grateful for the warmth of my home, a decent car and food.
It things people should not take for granted in their lives.
The bitter colds brings this into focus for me!
