Well, Trinity heard it and there was no swallowing back those words. Brother ended up not going...see how he is much brighter, in ideas? Haha.
I didn't mind it at all. I had rented a car, so that I can be independent and not have to rely on someone for entertainment.
I drove grandma and Trinity to a park close by. We walked through the cold windy air towards the play structures and told ourselves that we will get use to it. Once Trinity starts moving around and play, she won't even notice. Ha! True. She didn't, but I did. Oh My Gosh! Within five minutes, I had enough of the torture. The cold wind blew right through four layers of tank, t-shirt, sweater, and coat. My face got a nice freeze, it might even felt like a face lift, tight and stretched. My lips couldn't open, and not that I even wanted to. All the warm air would have left me, and we didn't want that. It was so cold! I looked at the car and if I didn't have to tend to my mom and Trinity, I would have been in the driver seat already. But, I had to suck-it-up, yes, I had to talk myself into forgetting the pain that was attacking my skin. I tried to let Trinity play for as long as I could stand the cold, and counting every minute. After more or less 20 minutes, I thought it was enough time that she got a taste of sliding and hanging on the monkey bars, I was ready to run to a warm fire and bundle-up.
I told myself to remember that if I ever wanted to repent for my sins, all I have to do is go to Michigan and stand in the cold like today. It would be such a torture for me, that god would know I am serious about repenting would forgive the sins I might have committed.
Now, I know some people would feel the same way about the heat, but boy, I think I could stand heat over cold. What about you?
