Today, our thoughts may be focused on weather, but let’s not forget it’s the Christmas season. Plug in the Christmas lights, listen to some Christmas music, wrap some packages, read from Luke and/or any chosen passages.
(We just had a “God wink” at our house. As I finished typing the last sentence, David walked over and let me listen to his phone and “O Holy Night” by a military band.)
Thankfully, the bad weather didn’t come during the night. The reports now show it arriving midday. If we have to experience bad weather, it always seems better if it come during daylight hours.
Stay tuned and aware. Some closures have already been announced. We probably will hear about closures in our area about daylight. Stay safe!
PRAYER FOCUS: Today, let’s pray for people in our area and other areas as the storm comes through. Be extra careful if you have to be out. Remember, God is in control of everything, even the storms.

PRAYER FOCUS: Pray for people in areas the storm has already touched and for areas where the the weather is yet to be dangerous. Pray, pray, and pray some more.
