Things You Can’t Control

Ottawa and Toronto had a big dump of snow today. 

When Mother Nature sends a message there really is no ignoring her!  All of our plans are subordinate to what she decides to do.  In our neck of the woods that is usually snow storms, in other places it can be hurricanes, tornadoes, droughts, floods, landslides … or any number of natural disasters.

Maybe its her way of reminding us that in the scheme of things our plans are really quite far down the priority list!

 At times like this there is not much more to do than accept that old saying, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”

  1. Reading about the category 5 Cyclone that hit Australia yesterday just highlights the power of Nature. If you can keep those things in mind there are so many lessons … about what is important; about how lucky we are; about how important it is to help out those less fortunate than ourselves; and that we need to really LIVE our lives, because we don’t know what is around the corner!
