i'm infatuated with this idea of winter and what it brings. i think winter is one of the most beautiful times of the year. with it's ice and snow. everything so pure. i adore the look of blindingly white slopes and the way the sun reflects on it. it gives you a whole new perspective. i love winter because it builds this anticipation of what's to come: Springtime. blooms, honey bees, butterflies, wildflowers and sunshine. everything grows with such intensity and beauty and it was specifically designed that way.
there is definitely a spiritual dynamic to this that i can relate to during my five year walk with God. there's also much that i can't even remotely begin to fathom. however, what i do know is that in the frozen things, in the waiting, & in the winter seasons of life, beauty emerges. life begins again after what seemed an endless amount of snow, frozen, cold and bitter. you find yourself beginning to live at the sound of rushing water. you see, all that snow is melting now and it's time to breathe in the spring.
perhaps one of the most gorgeous verses ever is, "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the sun." trust in His seasons. Trust and Hope in His timing. hold on to Truth. and enjoy this beautiful season of Springtime.
