Snowy Monday Morning

A brave tulip, standing tall despite hardship.  It is still snowing outside and there is quite a bit of snow already on the ground.  I am mighty sick of this weather.  My lilacs, their buds already frozen by the last storm, are all bent over under the weight of the snow.  There was a time when I would have gotten my boots on and gone out and knocked the snow off the branches, but I have ceased fighting anything or anyone - even snow.

I have lots of meetings and things to do today.  After work, I will put on my lace mantilla and go to my church for an hour of silent prayer.  Then to Biblical School until 9 p.m.  Mondays are long days but wonderful days.  

And I am bringing some of the posole I made yesterday for a friend at work.  It was good!  I love bringing food to work.  She and I are both good cooks, so we share food a lot.   Thank God for friends...

Thank God for everything.  Even though I have made a request that the snow stop, I still am grateful for every little detail this morning.

I can't imagine still dealing w/snow.'s hoping it goes away soon and stays away!

Oh no! I thought maybe you were repeating a post from last year or something! Snow, snow, go away, sweet Mary wants to run today. Poor flowers!

It was 74 deg when I went to the 6:30am meeting today.

I have the same request about the snow, I mean. Hope you have a productive day.

MC, I had to double check--thought I had slipped back into your archived blogs.

I, too, like to stop in church for some 'quiet' time, meditation, and 'easy-praying'. I pass there on the way to or from anywhere.

I guess castanets are frowned on in church? They go well with mantillas.

Hi Mary,
How are you?

Snowing where I live, too - although at least at this time of year it doesn't last long. I'm in only daughter's city and I drove through what felt like all four seasons getting here - snow, rain, sleet and hail. My husband said it was the shortest summer he's ever seen. Hopefully by the end of the month we will have seen the last of the snow although here July is the only month guaranteed to not have snow. I say that in a whisper because one never knows.
I do hope somehow your lilacs still bloom. I love your thankfulness despite the weather.
