Let Winter Magic Begin
Where Our Hearts Meet in the Cold Day
The snows begin. The winter cold breathes down my neck touching me with temporal icy fingers. I watch the flakes drift to the ground, hearing silence all around. I lift my hands to the sky and spin in the morning flakes, praising the God who made winter.
I recall that beautiful day three years ago. I love snow. I love the winter. I love writing. I love sitting inside in my living room watching cardinals hop across a frosty ground.
Winter can be a time of renewal and fresh starts. I know we don’t often associate this season with these themes. Renewal is often associated with spring. Winter, however, often brings in the New Year. With a new year comes new opportunities for growth and breakthroughs.
Winter is where our hearts meet the cold day, waiting for the beauty of the breath of the Holy Spirit across our minds and hearts. Winter provides the time to mediate and take a break because the cold often keeps us inside, and we don’t have much to do. During this down time, we can plan, we can dream. We can look forward and think on new things.
Where we meet winter, we find that past hurts can freeze over, and we can leave them behind as we wait for springs warmth to spread into our lives.
We can begin living winter magic and Philippians 3:13 today:
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
