The First Day of Winter

Although this picture ( I love bed hair... ) was taken a couple of weeks ago after a light snowfall, I am using it to acknowledge and accept the Winter Season. I will choose to believe the cold covers the earth and lets it rest until Spring ( Hallelujah! ) arrives and she is able to bear her fruit again. Can't you see I'm trying?!

I'm holding onto these beautiful words. I believe all of nature speaks of the patterns and rhythms of our lives. This season is a reminder that we do have times of dormancy when rest is necessary, when the fruit that is to come is far from obvious. Knowing that spring does come, during these times, I have hope.

My family's gardening hobby makes me realize we live more by the seasons that I ever did previously. Winter = Rest...I WILL embrace!
