Greetings from snow country on this fine April day. It was a 4×4 or stay in the snow bank day. While the grand kids are playing soccer in central USA we are still ice fishing in North West Wisconsin. By May 1 most of the three feet of ice will be gone. The ice fishermen that do not get voted off the planet will be wiser as we enter the black ice ( fish bite like crazy) week of temptation.
I have 20 40 insight on these things. Probably because I live in the moment too much. I wanted to wait five days and see what the promised warm weather would do to the snow and my natural inclination to get out on the ice.
5 Days Later… I believe I might act my age instead of my shoe size this spring. What would you do? What a difference five days can make even in the north country.
My life has been full of huge storms mixed with great weather (most of us can claim this). Storms tend to make me sort out the important from the urgent. Priorities begin to surface in matters of marriage, money, friends, and where I spend my thoughts. In matters of my relationships with God, family, and friends I realize how fiercely independent I shouldn’t be and how stable I am not.
I am still in awe over losing 16″ of snow on the lawn so fast.
One never knows how soon the sun will come out or when tomorrow will really come. I tend to be a bit slow on realizing these things which is why I would rate my insight into most things, be it weather related or life altering, 20 40 insight.
