Yesterday as we were driving to church, the sun was brilliant and the ice-covered trees and grasses appeared diamond-studded....an absolutely gorgeous January morning.
But I, on the other hand, LOVE WINTER!
No, I don't love every single thing about winter. Just like I don't love everything about spring, summer, or fall either. I truly enjoy all the seasons, each one special in its own way.
But mornings like this, even if you aren't crazy about winter, it's impossible to deny how breathtakingly gorgeous a winter morning can be.
I often think Heaven must look like this...dazzling, glittery, sparkling...so very pure and bright and full of God's light.
Winter has a special cleansing beauty that the other seasons don't have. A time of rest and rejuvenation for the entire earth, as well as our human bodies and souls.
There is something just so peaceful and quiet about snow-covered country fields in the winter.
I would miss it.
