h, I sure do not like the bitter cold. It can be hard to be thankful for that – but to combat it, I am thankful for our wood heat (just got a cord of apple wood) and our pellet stove, and to be able to turn on the electric blanket before climbing in bed.
This past Christmas I made quite a few rice bags for the kids – and several of them warm them up real hot in microwave and take them to bed with them. It’s probably like in the old days when people would use a bed warmer – a pan filled with hot coals and put under the bed covers – or a hot water bottle.
Sometimes at night before bed, I put dry PJ’s and towels in the dryer while I take a shower. That is warm luxury for sure!
It is so much easier now – and probably a lot warmer.
Thank you Father.
