Just Ramblin'

I'm sitting here this morning watching the weather map. It's starting to rain (freezing, by the way). I had gone by the hospital this morning, and when I left -- my windshield was frozen over. Beverly got about 10 miles down the road and turned around, as the situation continued to get worse. They're calling for sleet today and snow tonight. So, I don't know if we will be meeting at church or not.

Beverly and I went to the widow / widower's banquet last night. It was so sweet. There is much to be learned in the family of faith from those who have "been there and done that." I want to know how people used to keep warm during weather like this when all you had was a potbelly stove in the kitchen -- which was allowed to burn down at night! I wouldn't want to be the 1st one out of bed the next morning!

By the way, do you struggle with self-importance? Arrogance? I want to be a humble person. But I feel pretty good about my level of humility when I see Saddam Hussein at his trial. Wow! Talk about pompous and arrogant! (I guess you're not too humble when you compare yourself to others, right?)

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

The weatherman I was listening to this morning must be getting some bad reports because he made it sound as if the roads wouldn't be an issue until tonight. I was supposed to be headed to Ft. Worth but based on a few phone calls have changed my mind. Better safe than sorry.

Arrogant people really are hard for me to deal with. I don't understand the reasoning behind their words and actions.

I'm all for snow but would prefer the ice to stay in the freezer.

Amen, Jeff - keep the ice where it belongs! I do love having an unexpected day off though! I always feel like I just got a free gift! Wow!
I had a great time at the banquet last night! I love our older people at this church! What sweet hearts! Hope I get to spend some more time getting to really know them!

I was basically two hours getting home from the West side of Ft. Worth. The road conditions were awful and I fear an some evil thought two about Texas drives may have entered my mind. I would not have made it home without four wheel drive as about six trucks were stuck unable to go upwards on the first big hill on 730 out of Azle. They were spinning their wheels expending great effort but unable to move. Just like I am sometimes.
