No Snow Here.

I was looking out of my window when it suddenly started to snow heavily. Not a strange thing in the middle of March in the north of England. Just as suddenly the snow stopped. Later in the day I was speaking to my friend Mary who only lived 100 yards away. ‘There’s been no snow here,’ she told me in no uncertain terms

That got me thinking. My experience had been so different from Mary’s. I had had the snow, Mary hadn’t. In the same way my highs and lows of life are different from Mary’s and also from my other friends. We are all individuals and the wonderful thing is God treats us all according to our needs. He doesn’t treat us the same. He answers our own particular prayers, sees our own worries and rejoices in our different joys. It is true to say ‘The Lord is MY shepherd.’
