Winter is a great time for mamas and children and families to take walks in God’s world. While I love our green Tennessee hills in the summertime, when the leaves are gone, I can see things that were hidden from view a few months before. In winter, when the snow falls to the ground, it reveals hundreds and thousands of individual tall straight tree trunks that were hidden beneath vast seas of green in the summer.
Every season has its own light. The light of winter is especially beautiful because it is such a welcome sight amidst winter’s darkness.
I love the vistas of distant landscapes, but I love to look on the ground, too, where we can see the beauty God let fall there.
Winter shows us that God can transform His creations. The same water that dripped from shrubbery in spring, summer, and fall freezes into a different beauty in winter.
And icicles illustrate the process of water going from a free-flowing state to a solid one.
Winter seed pods give us hope of a time when things will grow again.
Thank you, Father, for Your lesson plans, right outside my door.
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes,
His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen,
being understood through what has been made,
so that they are without excuse.
