cold nights

I like to sleep with a hot water bottle on cold nights. But sometimes I'm so chilled that, at first, the hot water bottle only seems to emphasis how cold I am. It is odd to me that even as I'm hugging the hot water bottle to me the parts of my body not in contact with the heat can feel even more cold and break out in goosebumps. It's somehow so backwards.

It kind of reminds me of how sometimes when God is working on making one part of me better it can seem like things are actually getting worse all around. I guess I just have to trust that it's only how it feels and soon comfort and warmth will envelop me.

Thanks for that analogy. It's really good.
