Winter is coming, fast! Last week, Beth and I, brought in our tropical plants to keep them safe from winter’s breath and placed them on the front porch. We then put plastic sheeting around the interior of the porch to help keep it warmer. It worked and the plants made it through the first real cold snap. However, the next coming days are winter’s second wave of chilled air and the lows will be around 20 degrees.
We’ve also had several days with wind gusts up to 50 mph. As the wind assaulted our porch in plastic certain weaknesses in how we put it up were revealed. Today I fixed those areas, made them more secure.
As I worked on the small project I thought about life and the storms we face. They blow through, causing damage, making us a aware of our weakness and vulnerability. However, this doesn’t have to be negative and shameful.
In a way, I was thankful for the storms this past week so we could be better prepared for the next one. Perhaps wisdom can help us see life the same way?
