A Change in the Weather

A Change in the Weather

A new day…with first snow to stay on the ground this winter in St. George, Covasna County, Transylvania, Romania. We expected the first snow to come in November. Surprise1 It came almost 3 months late.

A few children are skiing on the mountains in the distance. For the first time in years, the nation’s schools are closed due to heavy snow…the worst is in southern and eastern Romania. No travel to Bucharest — roads are blocked by snow in many areas..

(When schools ARE open, many classrooms are so cold…the children and teachers wear coats and caps to try to keep warm.) God’s Children is thankful for you who send warm clothes for these children.

What message do you see in this? There are many. It just depends, perhaps, on what you are ready to learn. What comes first to my mind is Matthew 24:35-37, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

We can’t change the weather…but what do you need to change? God helps honest hearts find the way. — Anne

Will the Freeze Kill Emerging Growth?

ImageMuch of Europe is struggling under fierce snow storms, strong winds. Here, in St. George, temp. only 28 F at 10 p.m. Light snow covers the area, but the wind makes for bitter weather. Pray for all of God’s children who need shelter, warmth, food…and Truth.

ImagePray for healing of Balazs’ defective kidney. also for travel mercies and good weather, on Tu., Mar.26, when Peter & Maria take Balazs back to the specialist at Debrecen, Hungary, Medical University. More tests will be done Mar. 27. The decision about surgery will be made after that.

So, what’s this about freezing weather endangering new growth?  Well, some of you will think about the tiny shoots appearing on the climbing rose vines in my garden…and, you will be right.  The severe weather has killed the shoots once…maybe tomorrow I can see if Winter won again.  But, the roots are strong.  Come Summer, we will see this by my front gate!Image

Others of you will think more deeply.  Growth that can make this a more beautiful world is struggling in the midst of harsh conditions.  Throngs of people repeatedly ask, “Why is life so hard, so unfair?”  Ask Adam.  Ask Eve.  They were there when everything changed.

John tells us in I John 5:19, “…the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.”  Our job is to learn what God says in His Bible, stand strong, glorify God by our lives, let His LIght shine forth from within us.  Paul tells us, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” — Philippians 4:13…and I believe him! ~~ Anne
