beautiful, full snowflakes coming down, turning my little part of the world white. I open the door, the wind blows swirling balls of cold cotton against my face, down my neck. I'm pouting, it's supposed to be Spring, it's supposed to be
As much as I want it to change, Winter is hanging on for all it's worth...1 then 2 then 6 inches and more.
Are you in a season you wish would change, that you'd get a fresh start, a new tomorrow? Life doesn't always take the path we'd like it to go,
sometimes we have to sit awhile in the present season,
sometimes it lasts longer than we thought or hoped.
God has a purpose, a plan, a reason for this lingering. But, know we do not linger alone. God speaks to our hearts, "I am with you always." He's prepared the day and no matter how it turns out, we can be content. We can sit around pouting or...
We can have JOY unspeakable!
We can rest assured that in our patience, the season will come to an end...it always does. Time continues on, it heals. Our Winters become Springs.
So, we wait, we learn, we count our gifts....we count it all JOY.
