Man Plans, God laughs!

Sunday, March 01, 2009

Have y'all ever heard the Yiddish phrase "Man Plans, God Laughs"? It's one of my favorites because while we're busy planning how we want things to be, God's listening and rolling around on the floor laughing at us.
A while back I blogged about being sick of winter and how I was looking forward to March. I think God read the blog and was rolling around heaven laughing at me. On the first day of March, it's snowing big, fat flakes of snow here! emoticon emoticon emoticon IT'S NOT FUNNY!!! I really didn't think it was going to snow, just another prank call. I guess Winter has to have a final hurrah before the 20th(Spring Equinox) but why not do something freaky like a snowstorm in LA or Mexico? Instead, it's up and down the Eastern Seaboard! I'm not a happy person right now!
Oh, well...The Weather Channel says it should get up to 45 tomorrow with sunshine emoticon so let the wet stuff have it's fun this evening. I've already hit Wally's World for supplies, good stuff on the telly, roof overhead, warmth and plenty of peanut butter and chocolate to celebrate National Peanut Butter Lovers Day(tomorrow BTW emoticon), got popcorn if needed. I'll be fine.
I'm not giving up on Spring either! I'll be patiently waiting for spring and listening to God's Tee Hee Hee...
Hey, it could be worse! We could be hunting Easter eggs in the snow!

THE DAY AFTER: God's still laughing because after all that snow yesterday, it's nearly 40, the roads are mostly clear, the bread, milk and eggs are nearly gone and the news people are treating this as a "snowstorm", and the snow is melting fast! I do hope winter's headed for it's spring and summer vay-cay!

    Yes, we can make all the plans we want, but I pray, "Let Thy will be done!"

  You gotta have a plan-the thing is, is it lined up with God's ? And I do agree that God must have a blast at some of the plans we have!

    I love that saying! My family has a long standing joke about that and when ever things are going crazy we just imagine God getting a good chuckle. He has to get His entertainment too, right?!
