This is the view that greeted me during my morning coffee:
I grew up hearing the saying, "Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning." I remember being so excited seeing the first time I saw the same phrase in the bible, In Matthew:
2 He answered them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
I think it is beautiful that God set such an incredible world into motion...that He established laws of nature and signs and seasons. This red-sky-at-morning sign is quite true. And there is definitely a storm coming! We're gearing up for a massive ice storm. In Missouri, that means power outages galore. WooHoo!
We bought donuts for a power-deficient breakfast (true on multiple layers) and lunchmeat for easy lunches. Now, we're catching up on laundry and preparing for lots of cuddling and reading. I should probably be responsible and serious about this, but ice storms still mean adventure to me. We're all giddy at the moment and having trouble staying serious.
