Tomorrow is Saturday. I’m going to say it’s a Slow-It-Down Saturday.
There’s a possibility of Snow.
Snow by Joan Y. Edwards
Beautiful snowflakes wearing clothes of different styles.
Beautiful snowflakes, traveling down to earth for miles.
Dancing to the tune of “Silent Night.”
All is calm. All is bright.
The snow shimmers in the night.
It asks you if it should turn left or right.
If you stand outside, it’ll land on your nose.
It’ll make a snowman out of the snowflakes you chose.
When the sun heats up, the snowman drops to the ground.
It melts until another venture without even a sound.
Take time to do something for yourself today. Make your day’s time spread out to include three things that are fun for you.
A bath with warm water and bubbles (I remember when I was a child, we put soap powders used to wash clothes in the bathtub with us. Especially useful, if we had been playing in the mud.)
Listen to 15 minutes of your favorite music on the radio, with your CD player, on television, or sing your favorite songs.
Check the batteries in your flashlights. If it snows or ice forms on the power lines, the power may go out. Then you can sit in an easy chair and relax. Hopefully you have extra food in your cupboard that doesn’t require cooking or baking.
Spend 15 minutes thanking God for allowing you to enjoy this Saturday. Tell him all that you want to do today. He’ll help you get it done calmly and efficiently. After all, a man who can build the earth in 7 days knows how to use time wisely.
Read a good book to your children or grandchildren. 15 minutes of now time creates hours of fond memories for years to come.
Write a poem about snow or Christmas. Post it on your refrigerator.
Feel free to comment and tell me your favorite thing to do when it snows.
