It's the weekend again! During this Christmas break, the weekends haven't seemed quite as important. School begins again on Monday, so they will once again be greatly anticipated. The whole country, with just a couple of exceptions, is in the grips of some very frosty weather. My heart goes out to those who are facing negative double digit temperatures and dangerous wind chills. It is getting down into the teens at night here in the sunny South, but that doesn't begin to compare with what others are facing. Pray for protection and provision for those folks.
