I guess with a heading like that, you don’t need a weather report. (As if you did in the first place.) The stuff is actually very beautiful, and I’ll post a picture later today.
I loved your responses to the Valentine question–Margaret, I DO remember making those Valentine boxes with crepe paper and glue, and waiting in anticipation to open them on the day. It was very exciting–a lot of things about attending grade school in Northport, WA were major events–like the last day before Christmas vacation, when we always had cookies, punch, a movie and a very modest gift exchange in the afternoon, followed by dismissal. Hard to know who was happier when the bell sounded–us, or our teachers. Those of you familiar with small towns will note that movies were a very big deal in those days–our local movie house closed sometime in the early fifties, I think–I recall being enthralled by Disney’s “Toby Tyler”. That kid would have had me sold on running off to join the circus if it hadn’t meant leaving home.
I mentioned my big plan, right? The one where I get up at 4 a.m., etc.? Well, it finally occurred to me that God’s plan for me might just be a little different from mine.
He seems to want me to sleep in.
