Put On Ice

Carbon is not a fan of ice.  Note her look of concern.
Neither am I.  Schools cancel.  Cars slow.  Cats stay inside.

We all have to slow down when ice falls from the sky and coats every outdoor surface.

Yet ice is what we pack on our inflamed muscles when we have an injury, taking the sting out of the pain.  A hotflash sends me outdoors into the cold to bring me relief.

Being forced to slow down our overheated schedules isn't all bad.  Calmer paces allow space for reflection and quiet.  And quiet is where God speaks.
