See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains.- James 5:7

As I post this, it is -2 degrees below zero. It has been below zero for the past few nights - down to -15 some nights. Imagine how in the old days monks and nuns broke their sleep, rising during the night to fill unheated churches to chant the night office - vigils. Monks and nuns still do that of course, although these days they usually have the modern convenience of heat and electricity - in this country at least.
