Unless you are a snow bunny and snow shoe, ski or play in other ways with the snow, winters can be difficult. The worries of winter are already a part of our conversations.
Both physically and spiritually the winter can be a crucial time of quiet rest, watching and pondering. There will be opportunities this winter for reflection (watching snow fall past a street light) that may stir your perseverance and hope for the future.
Some of us will go through a tough winter, changes will happen in our personal lives and adjustments in relationships or health will challenge us. Let’s challenge each other to watch for the rest that is available during winter and accept the season as a gift to be discovered.
