Winter blahs, cabin fever, vitamin D deficiency, and wind chill index are all negative terms used for winter. 

In Minnesota we take winter to a new level by throwing out terms like Winter Carnival, Ice Palace and ice sculptures. In this land of the Norsemen, our hearty people cut a hole in the ice and either jump into it after sitting in a sauna, or sit next to it with a fishing pole waiting for dinner. 

 I guess weather is all in how we look at it. When you live up north you find ways of enjoying it, such as turning your backyard into a hockey rink; sledding down a steep hill; blowing bubbles into the polar vortex; or curling up with a good book. Just think! 

 In a few months we’ll be complaining about the rain or the water leaking in from the roof which carried too much snow. God gives us our environment as a blessing. Whether we are happy with it has nothing to do with the gift. 

 We had the opportunity for perfection, but that opportunity was blown when Adam and Eve let their guard down and believed the lies of the devil. It ain’t perfect, but we still have the God given talents to make the best of it.

Stay warm, my friends.


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Sorry, I disagree on the ice fishing! I came to love in living in Wyoming and Utah. I didn’t even have a fancy shack, just warm coveralls. Drilling through 2 ft of ice will warm you right up!

      That would be great, Rodney! Our winters in Minnesota are brutal and last for almost half the year.
