I’m so sick of February. It’s the shortest month but it sure doesn’t feel that way. (Toby Flenderson, TV fictional character)

For those of us who live in the northern hemisphere, winter months can seem to drag on forever, especially in the so-called snow belt. Frigid temperatures and ice-packed roads and walks are not only dangerous; they’re really disagreeable. March may be a longer month, but at least it brings the prospect of spring. Don’t allow your circumstances determine your feelings.

 I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation. (Philippians 4:11-12)
