Grateful for A Car with Heat

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.

  1. 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.

      1. 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. 😀

  2. 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. ☀️

  3. 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! 🙂

      1. 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….

      1. 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!
