What’s up, cold Wisconsin?

7 Jan

So, as most of you have probably heard, or been bombarded by on Facebook, it’s cold here in the upper Midwest.  Not just below freezing.  Not just below zero.  But 28 degrees below zero, well that’s what it feels like anyway with the wonderful wind chill we have here.  Needless to say, we’ve mostly been in the house for the past couple days.  And boy do we get cooped up after a couple days.  Ok, maybe more than a couple.

I’ve also had a cold for the past week, which knocked me out most of last week.  And now the cold.  It’s been about 9 days of being inside and staying home.  Except for the trip to the store and church.  That’s it.  I probably shouldn’t have gone to those places either, spreading my germs around.  Oh well, we have to be filled.

And since we’ve been cooped up, I thought I’d get so many projects and other things done!  Nope, mostly the same pace as usual or a little slower depending on the day and where my cold fell in its nasty little process.  And there have been other things to worry about and consider.

Who are we?  Where are we supposed to be?  Are we too picky?  What do we do?  Where do we go from here?

Lately there has been a lot of seeking and not a lot of finding.  Stuck in the ever present feeling of how do we get out of this cold, winter funk.  And the more we seek, the less we seem to find.  And that cold winter feeling creeps into my heart.

We seem to have made a little progression in our seeking, however.  We have found a church.  If not for the long term, at least to fill us as we continue to seek.  We have chosen to be proactive instead of inactive.  We have chosen to warm our hearts with game nights and fellowship.  These things may not be what we are actively seeking, but they are things we have found.

And praise God for unexpected findings.
