Lost and Found

Lost and Found

Free for this week: (February 17-21) Lost and Found.
When mankind was evicted from the Garden of Eden, we lost more than scenery and serenity. This book takes a closer look at six major blessings, stolen by sin – only to be returned in the redeeming work of Jesus the Messiah. Dr Tyree has been serving as a minister with churches of Christ for over 30 years. A graduate of Harding University (BA, 1984), he has also completed work in Theology and Pastoral Counseling. His greatest passion, however, is preaching and teaching. Out of that pursuit has come the need to put down on paper some of the thoughts that so readily spill out of his mouth. Other works currently include: Ministerial Musings, What 3000 People Believed, and The Passing of the Sabbath. Coming soon . . . Buffy and Biff, an Unfortunate Friendship (for teens), Monsoon McCreel and the Rose (for young readers).

Cold Weather

I don’t like to be cold. There are some people who just adore wrapping up in 15 layers of clothing, 3 hats, a scarf, hand warmers, mittens, and boots; all in order to go running outside and sliding around in something that can turn your toes blue and lop off bits of your nose. I don’t get that. Perhaps my aversion to cold is the reason behind never making a good snowman, although if the wind didn’t blow so much here in NW Oklahoma, I could deal quite well with the snow (at least for a few minutes).

However, I abhor the biting cold. I sincerely believe that when the world was created, God meant for us to live in a tropical climate of day time temperatures from 72-84 degrees and evening lows nowhere below about 55 degrees. When the fruit was eaten, it didn’t just get Adam and Eve kicked out of the garden and given painful started real winters. Did I mention that I don’t like the cold?

Don’t get me wrong, I love the fall. Fall is my favorite time of year, with the changing leaf colors, the warm days with nights cool enough to bonfire, and the perfect temperatures for curling up with a cup of hot tea and a light blanket. I’m sure that if I moved to somewhere tropical that I would probably miss the snow on some level…right? Maybe I should try that idea out and see how long it takes to miss the cold…They take imagination as currency now don’t they? It seems like a good plan anyway.

Whether you are one of those people who enjoy freezing temperatures, or someone like me who tolerates the winter as best you can, I hope that you all stay cozy and safe this winter season…unless you live where it is warm. If you live where it is warm, and there are beaches (for my muse of course) perhaps you would like to send some of that warmth my way?? J Wherever you are, and whatever season is your favorite, I wish you a Blessed day.
