i'm not to fond of the winter...the snow...i enjoy it but then i like for it to go away. we haven't seen any wintery snow. in alabama it's not something you can easily find. however....the winter does bring change. It's just part of nature. I would add that winter (hard pressing down) brings change also in our spiritual nature as we allow God to do so. Today i'm experiencing that...the snow has fallen, tree limbs have broken, the coldness has entered...but spring is around the corner bringing healing...newness. Even though i'm not fond of winter...it does bring to me something that is more than words can portray....a newness of life.
