Psalm 90:10, "The length of our days is seventy years—or eighty if we are strong....
| Dear Grandsons
The days grow short and cool now until Jack Frost pays us a visit. He is later this year for us. He must be busy else where. Just take your time Jack. We will do just fine without you showing up. I still have painting to do. I have to lift weed and reset the brick walkway. The van needs some body repair done and there is roto tilling to do. Yes, Jack we do not miss you. but I do now you will arrive and stay for months. It can be depressing, so I do want to be ready for your arrival. We will work to keep you out of the house even if it costs more this winter. The house remains our sanctuary even if we keep it cool. I will admit that some of Jack's activities can be pretty and He does make it possible to Ice Fish. BUT I will be here dreaming about a new spring which will push Jack to the far north where he belongs. And God's cycle will start over once more.
