I woke up this morning, with the temperature gauge-thing reading -3 degrees outside! Negative 3 degrees!!! That is soooo intensely cold. So cold, it feels like it takes all the air out of your lungs. So cold that your fingers go numb in like 2 minutes. So cold that just wearing a hoodie and snowboots doesn’t cut it – I unfortunately learned this one myself. So cold that the faucet doesn’t run. So cold that your shoes freeze to the wet cement. So cold that doors freeze shut. I think you get the picture. Or I sure hope you do. 😉 That’d be kind of awkward if you didn’t…. 😉
It’s been in the negatives every day and night for the past week – I’m pretty sure this is going to be a much colder winter than we’ve had in a while. We still have a few inches of snow…and our car actually died this morning because it was so cold. I have to wear my hoodie and winter socks along with my pajamas if I don’t want to freeze at night (and I even have a heating pad on my bed! Not to mention we keep the heater on all night….)
Man, it’s cold. In case you haven’t noticed. And if you also didn’t notice – I don’t like the cold. I boycott snow. I’m altogether Scrouge, The Grinch, and a humbug when it comes to winter. (by the way, the Grinch is amazing. Just sayin’ Oh, and the Muppets Christmas Carol is like the best Christmas movie – ever) Granted, I really like winter break (which starts on the 19th!! so excited), so winter does have it’s pros. Still….
In other news, I spent 3 hours at the dentist today. I had to get some stuff done….but I sure am tired. And I bet my hygienist is too…haha. It actually wasn’t all that much I needed to get done – a cleaning and some sealants…but I go to a place where they have students do the work, so it takes longer because they have to have instructors check everything. But my hygienist was very sweet, so that made it better.
Really, I’m sooooo tired. My jaw was aching through the whole thing, but the Bible verse, “My Grace is sufficient for you,” kept running through my head. Every time it seemed like too much (I mean, c’mon – 3 hours is a long time to keep your mouth open, even with frequent breaks), that verse would pop in my head and the ache would seem to vanish for a while. Bible memorization sure is helpful!
Here’s the full verse, in case you were wondering:
2 Corinthians 12:9, “And He has said to me, ‘My Grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.’ Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.”
What do you think of all the snow?? How’s the weather in your side of the country/world? Hope your having a great one, and Happy Winter Break to all students out there – I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I will. 😀
All my love,
