Iowa is not your typical spring break destination. But this sign showed up this week just in time for the start of spring break. It made me laugh! I could envision that this is the typical sign in Florida, not Iowa, welcoming the droves of people to their sunshine state.
Iowa – the new destination for spring break? Not likely. But I wondered about contentment for those who couldn’t afford this year to go to the warmer climates for their spring break. Can we celebrate the sunshine of Iowa, enjoy the time off from school, embrace the weather whatever it is?
Paul wrote in his letter to the Philippians, 12 “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
Spring break Iowa style! I am content! (still praying for warm weather this next week, tho!)
