This week, the weather got colder again and down to -24 degrees C. This is better than the past weeks where the temp was down to -35 C. We've been here for almost 20 years and still not get used to this cold weather :) but we survived! As long as your house have centralized heating system, a car with heater and warm clothes to wear, then you're ok.
But I can't wait for the spring to come where the ice is finally melting and new life springs forth, to see my flowers bloom, trees to produce fruits, grass to grow and to walk with slippers and to enjoy rain and sunshine! This is one of my favourite season. Transition from that of frozen to which is alive! It is so exciting to see something cold and dead to comes alive and colourful!
Sometimes there are areas of our lives experience complete death in order to experience the full life God desires of us. The cold and frozen will always brings forth the promise of a beautiful life. We can finally exhale with a sigh of relief recognizing His beautiful presence within, as we gladly resign ourselves to a sweet surrender. We become aware that He is there and all will be well. The once gray skies begin to break away as shades of a heavenly blue begin to emerge. For the dawning of a new morning has arrived and with that dawning comes the promise of those wonderful and blessed.
God's mercies is new every morning...
But whatever season we are in, we ought to be "happy" because there is a purpose for everything.
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end. So therefore there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can.
"Look, the winter is gone, and the rains are over and gone. The flowers are springing up, the season of singing birds has come, and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air. Song of Solomon 11-12
Stay warm, hope is here!
