The past four winters my old van had a problem. The heat did not work. Not a big deal, it was more a nuisance. This morning I turned the heat on in my new vehicle and was grateful it works. It is interesting how a small thing like that can change a person’s mood.
I was already looking forward to seeing my Ukrainian friends this morning, but as the heat warmed me up, the realization hit me that for the first time in years winter will not be an issue. Driving around in temps below zero at times in the winter can be a fun adventure.
I realize that having heat in the car is a first world problem and does not compare to the hardships people experience in many countries, but as 1st Thessalonians 5:16 to 18 says:
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
So I rejoice my car has heat now.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Ah, perspective. I’m glad you have a heated car now, Matt. God Bless!
Perspective can help us not get down or too high
I rejoice with you. You ask and God provided.
Yes, indeed. We have been discussing rejoice always in Sunday School a lot lately. Perspective is important. Alone who knows how cold it gets in these parts, very glad for you.
SO GOOD to hear from you little sister!!!
Do you like the cold winters?
Happy to have a chance to pop in! If I am inside under a nice blanket with a good book and nowhere to go cold winters are just fine. 😀
so ice fishing would be a no for you 🙂
Tiny little million miracles ❤️❤️
Love you sweet daughter 🙂
How are you?
Heat in a car in winter is a blessing from God. It makes it easier to see out the windshield. Heat in a car allows you to go much further in your faith journey!
Heat is a blessing 🙂
A blessing indeed. I rejoice with you.
Thank you Manu. How are you?
I am doing well. Thank you for asking 😊
Good deal. I hope it starts in really cold weather
I will have the battery checked before it gets really cold 🙂
Praise God for heat!
Glad you have heat big brother! You definitely need it in Nebraska. Now if you decide to move to Miami one day, that’ll be a different story. ☀️
If I moved to Miami, I would need air conditioning and also a way to stay safe from all those alligators wandering around 🙂
So glad you have a heater that works! It is cold and wet here today. I’m thankful for our vehicle (that I’m learning to drive!) and that it has a heater that works too! 🙂
How are the driving lessons for you?
I’m getting there. I’m at least much more comfortable behind the wheel now. I still have some bases to cover before I feel confident taking my test. With school I’m not getting as much practics behind the wheel and have a lot more to juggle so I’m not sure when to book my road test. It’s tentatively booked for sometime in February, but I might bump it up so I don’t run into bad weather for my exam. I’d rather do it in Spring or Summer.
I also have to work around my school practicum….
step by step 🙂 breathe 🙂
I’m so happy for you, brother! It’s a blessing and one I’m glad you have!
Thank you little sister. How are you today?
You’re so welcome! Today I got out and drove to Branson. It was about 2 1/2 hours being out total. It was good for my soul to be out among people! My body told me it was time to go home and rest. So I listen well! Thank you for your prayers and support!
I can see that you are enjoying your warm car.
Yes I am 🙂
After winters of no heat in my van, I am ready for having heat 🙂
Praises to God for the smallest of life’s treasures. May we always share our gratitude with our Father for even the smallest of blessings. Matt, enjoy your car this winter.
I will enjoy my car and the warmth 🙂
The Game is almost here. Are you excited?
