As the wintery weather approaches, I find myself (and many others) making wishes for a huge downfall of snow, just to enjoy the family outing that ensues led first by a late departure to work (if at all going in), sledding down the closest hill (no matter how small), building a snowman, and the annual snowball fight that seems to get everyone a little rowdy.
However, we should note that despite the lyrics…
“When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you” *
…dreams are rarely fulfilled. However, prayers are answered daily. Does that mean we should pray? I’m not saying we shouldn’t. God has many more important things to worry about. However, your prayer doesn’t have to be about snow today. It could be just a thankful prayer that God gave you your family to spend time with on this cold wintery day.
I thank God that I have such a wonderful family. And not just my wife and child, but my extended family, friends, and church. Amen!
