Today is the very last day of a very short month, February 28, 2019, and while this picture above was not taken today it is a reminder that Winter is still here, it also reminds me of what lies beneath the snow and what is to come. So what do cold hands and warm heart have to do with it you ask? well you see outside it may be cold but deep beneath the surface God is allowing growth, Spring is right around the corner and there is so much to look forward to, like the saying right now all we can feel is the cold but we know that the warmth is to come as are sunny days and Spring growth, the same growth that has been buried during the cold season.
So for this last day of February reflect on the Winter’s rest we are experiencing and look forward to the sunshine of the Spring months ahead! God has a purpose and intent for all the seasons of our lives and for the season’s Mother Nature provides, let the seeds that are taking root beneath the surface be like the seeds that take root in our hearts as we rest in God word.
In Ecclesiastes 3:1 it says” There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens. The picture above reminds me, while I don’t necessarily enjoy the overcast of a cold Winter’s day, God does give us a beautiful snowy, sunny Winter’s day to enjoy both indoors and out and deep below are the beginnings of the roots that will soon bloom into the beauty of Spring.
Yes Winter to me is a season of rest, a quiet time of reflection and the closing of February reminds me that the warmer, sunny days and the beauty of Fresh joy in the flowers and budding trees of Spring are just around the corner.
