“Nothing is more important than that we receive Divine Guidance in everything we do.”
— Ernest Holmes

Last Sunday evening I was able to enjoy the Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints football game. They were playing in Green Bay and the snow kept falling during the whole game.

The snow did not cover the field because two days before the game the field was covered with plastic sheets and heaters were used to blow 75-degree air under the plastic to keep the field warm. It was a great idea because the snow would melt as it hit the warm field and the yard lines and other markers did not get covered with snow.

I have watched games when it was snowing and the ground crews had to keep sweeping the snow off the lines and other markers so the game could continue. As I watched the snowfall, my memory took me back to a time when I worked in that kind of weather and it was never pleasant...
