I like the phrase, “beyond measure.” It’s old, but a it’s a great phrase. I’ve been blessed “beyond measure.” Why did the Lord allow me to be born in America? Why did He allow me to be born to wonderful parents, marry a fantastic wife, have amazing children and now a grandchild? Did I earn any of this? Did I work for any of these blessings? Was it because I was good enough? Smart enough? Hey…maybe I was just lucky? Oh please! Don’t get me started on luck! There is no such thing as luck.
I hope you are laughing. No, the truth is…I believe in no form of luck…it’s all God!
He has blessed me beyond measure. Here’s a case in point.
Oh, it gets better… BEYOND MEASURE!
Now isn’t that just precious!! Doesn’t she look just like me! 🙂 Ha!
It has been such a blessing (beyond measure) having all my family at home. We are all under the same roof. It’s like the Walton’s. I guess I’m grandpa! 🙂 Meals together are the best. Looking at all my family around the table…holding hands…just before the blessing…Charlotte in her little swing…smiling…cooing…and the faces of the rest of the family. Awesome!
Yep, I’m blessed beyond measure!
Now for the weather buffs…
Here’s the pattern change that’s been advertised… Green is cold…Purple is REALLY cold. The map below shows what will be happening by Jan. 1st.
All that purple will move east along with potential moisture. So keep an eye on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Here’s the deal. When we get a strong push of cold air, (which we are definitely going to get), it can be so strong that it pushes the moisture south and just obliterates it. But, if the southern jet stream can work in concert with the northern jet…then we can have some potential snowy weather. It’s way too early to tell how the pattern will set up. It might be a bust, but it’s a possibility that is on the table for now.
In the meantime, think about all that the Lord has blessed you with this Christmas season. Are you blessed beyond measure? I’m thinking you probably are. Have there been difficulties this year. Sure. But, those difficulties draw us closer to the Father. I love Jeremiah 31:25, “I will satisfy the weary soul and every languishing soul I will replenish.”
Hallelujah! That’s a blessing beyond measure! Amen? Yes…Amen!!
