BLACKBERRY WINTER IS HERE, BRRR !!!!

Church was uplifting this morning. I am so thankful that I stepped back from my job at church that was putting me in direct and constant conflict with the other church that meets in our sanctuary. Now I can concentrate on God's word and give my full attention to His callings.
We had Thanksgiving in April for lunch today as I cooked the turkey that I found buried in the bottom of the freezer last week and made all the fixins that go with it. Everyone made it to lunch and all seemed to enjoy it very much.
After lunch everyone scattered in their own activities for the afternoon and I was left alone in the house which was nice for a relaxing afternoon.
The weather is taking a nasty turn with winds whipping around blowing in a cold system that is bringing more freezing temperatures.
Hubbie and I went to pick out a new microwave this evening as our old one bit the dust yesterday with a firey flash.
We met some old friends in Sam's Club and had a nice long visit putting us home at chore time.
As I shut the chickens up this evening I looked up at all the tall pine trees waving to and fro and said a prayer for  protection of the chickens and everyone else that might be in harms way tonight as the winds really are blowing hard.
It is already snowing in some of the higher mountains of NC and as this storm moves northward it is going to surely be wintery.
Yes this is truly the snowfall predictions for these cities through April 24.
 Talk about contrast !!  This is a map of the record breaking high temperatures in the southwest.
The temperature here tonight at 11:00 is 40 with a chill factor of 32. And the winds are howling.
I hope mother nature isn't reconsidering the mild winter she gave us !!!
Putting everything is God's hands tonight and going to bed to peaceful rest.
Good Night and God Bless.
