Reminding myself not to complain that winter hasn't left yet by remembering this day last summer.
It was the final day in Grand Rapids for our youth group's mission week. It got close to 100-degrees and Ron, the guy who supervised our work at the elder care facility at which we worked, knew that I had a pacemaker and defibrillator. So, he assigned me to drive the Gator while poor Isaac and another young man in our group shoveled and spread mulch.
The next day, shortly after we'd returned to Logan, that ferocious storm that knocked out so much power in Ohio and other states hit and we had no air conditioning during the hottest, most humid week of the year.
A little bit of the lingering winter we're experiencing now would have felt really good about then.
Take the seasons as they come and keep on leaning on Jesus!
