I don't know about the rest of the world, but here on the prairies when the farmers get together every morning at coffee row, the topic on everyone's mind is ... the weather. So please, bear with me as I do what comes naturally and tell you about my world.
Just a couple weeks ago, we had our first snowfall. It slowly disappeared, but even as the white stuff refused to melt in the shady spots, a gorgeous Indian summer rolled across the prairie. It enabled the guys to finish cleaning the yard and clear all the summer chairs off the front stoop. They even put up a couple strings of blue Christmas lights.

Except when I think of that verse, my mind changes the words to 'The earth declares the handiwork of God and I proclaim the work of His hands.'
What was the weather when you first looked out your window today? Which window did you look out?
